Voxy - Learn a language from life

Voxy - Learn a language from life | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

We don’t believe learning should be based on static content, memorizing verb charts, grammar rules, or learning vocabulary words out of context. That’s why we create engaging exercises with authentic language used by native speakers. We don't write lessons for you, we curate real-world discourse and turn it into lessons adapted to your language level.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Voxy looks like a really great all round product to get students listening, reading and speaking. You can access it through any device, but the mobile app looks really great and it's one of the first I've seen that really seems to be drawing on the multimedia capabilities of mobile and tablet devices for language learning.

SOLE

SOLE | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Students self organize into their groups. In some cases, teachers have found that the process runs better when they assist in the formation of groups. From this moment, the educator simply let's the adventure begin! Students begin exploring the big question, jumping on computers and searching for answers. In some cases, open and supportive questions may help, and very important, offer encouragement. For the most part, educators should remain invisible. Yet, it's not unusual to run into a few challenges, ranging from one child being excluded to an entire group not working on the task.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Great resource for setting up your own SOLE.

Trinity College London - Useful Corpus resources

Trinity College London - Useful Corpus resources | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
Traditionally, language teaching focused on vocabulary and grammar as two separate components of linguistic skills. It was believed that once learners acquire lexical items and internalise grammatical rules, they will be able to combine these components and apply them in communicative situations. However, there is a growing body of evidence that shows that in order to communicate successfully, learners also need to acquire expressions and structures that lie between lexis and grammar, so called lexico-grammar

A really interesting resource.

Coming Out Simulator

Coming Out Simulator | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

You play as a semi-fictional version of me, on a night that changed my life forever. Choose your (my?) words wisely. Every character will remember everything you say -- or don't say -- as you figure out how to approach my (your?) hyper-conservative Asian parents. And if all that seems confusing or awkward... well, that's the gist of coming out as queer, isn't it?

Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a really interesting simulation game about 'coming out'. Great way to lead into a discussion or writing activity with students.
