Great little game for pupils learning colours in spanish. Plenty of practice at recognition and production. Reading and listening recognition practised. Different levels - from 10 to about 20 different colours. I like!

Judy Carruthers's comment, May 7, 2013 1:17 PM
Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right mix. Nor are your styles fixed. You can develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use well.

This post provides the infographic that shows 18 myths about education. It also includes short explanations about research on each of the 18 myths (located under the infographic).

The editor also noted that some of these topics are "contentious." If you choose to respond to any of them here or on the original post please use civil language.

Myriam Davies's curator insight, April 20, 2013 4:04 AM

worth reading

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, April 26, 2013 4:29 PM

This is a very interesting PDF article on Interactive Technologies in language teaching, focusing on the Interactive White Board (IWB) including what it is, IWB based materials, and how to use it in the foreign language classroom. Definitely worth a read, although it is definitely targeted at a very specific audience as not every classroom has an IWB.
