Word Booster

Susan's insight:
Take any English article, paste the link in the Word Booster tool search, and watch the magic! It creates vocabulary lists, exercises and QR code to the article too! It's hard to find digital tools that can offer something new... I haven't been here for awhile for that reason but this one is worth mentioning!

Vidtionary: A Video Dictionary

Vidtionary: A Video Dictionary | Web 2.0 Tools in the EFL Classroom | Scoop.it
See and hear the meaning

Via Nik Peachey, Ricard Garcia
Susan's insight:

A visual way for language teachers to introduce new vocabulary and concepts to their students.  Vidtionary defines and expresses the words using images.  I think it could be a great success in the ESL or EFL classroom.

Something for the multiumedia curator's toolbox. 

Jesús Torres Junquera's curator insight, March 4, 2013 10:05 AM

En palabras de Robin Good, desde donde rescoopit-amos esta nueva herramienta: 

Annotag es una nueva aplicación web que permite etiquetar y anotar cualquier clip de vídeo: grabado o cargado desde YouTube o Vimeo.
Gracias a ello se puede pasar fácilmente a las partes que se deseen de cualquier vídeo etiquetado: así resultará más accesible e informativo.

Una vez marcado y anotado un vídeo se podrá compartir en de sus canales preferidos de medios sociales o utilizar el "código de inserción" para publicar en su sitio web.

Annotag permite crear múltiples categorías en el canal, con objeto de facilitar la agrupación de los clips en carpetas.

Es posible añadir colaboradores adicionales: editores a su canal, integrar los comentarios de Disqus, Google Analytics y seleccionar un canal público "look" de la página Annotag propia, eligiendo entre una variedad de diferentes plantillas ya preparadas.

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | Web 2.0 Tools in the EFL Classroom | Scoop.it

I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.


Via Shona Whyte, Yuly Asencion, Jen Hazard Lemery, Tracy Webb Sharp, BilingualStudyGuides
Susan's insight:

I have used Storytelling with 15-year olds!  They also loved it.  If you get your students to write their stories directed towards young children, it helps them to use simple vocabulary and structures which is great writing practice for them.  Afterwards they can share them on a wiki/blog/moodle site.  Very rich! I'm attaching two examples of my students' stories.
