Awesome site! robust tools! These graphic outlines provide  practice in two important skills for students with language or organizational challenges. First the organizers provide an external structured process and product for students with a need to break complex composition and communication tasks down into smaller steps. Second--as students use these outlines, they become 'internalized' --a cognitive tool equipping them with a ready made schema that increases comprehension of what they hear and read. --Lou

Krishna Prasad Subedi's curator insight, May 11, 2:23 AM

Fear to speak in the target language in non-native speakers' classroom has been a long topic of debate among the educationist, teachers and planners alike. Most children in Nepalese context either feel humiliated before they make mistakes in their utterance. Others fear to share their thoughts due to lack of proper knowledge of target language. While a large group of students, in the school where I teach, do not want to hear the negative feed backs from their teachers. There is always one or other reasons, which may not work together in every students, for excuses to students when it comes to speaking in the targeted language.

Cool New App Lets You Make Futuristic Comics on the Fly | Storytelling

Cool New App Lets You Make Futuristic Comics on the Fly | Storytelling | Websites for Blended EFL | Scoop.it
Last week, Pocket Gems’ storytelling app Episode registered its 500,000th writer—not bad for a product that launched less than six months ago. While many of those half-million would-be creators are obviously amateurs, veterans of Marvel Comics and the CW’s Supernatural have signed up to created interactive animated serials, what Pocket Gems CEO Daniel Terry describes…

 

How Episode works is simple; readers download the app (via Apple’s App Store,Google Play or the Amazon App Store), select one of the available stories—choosing from “Hollywood Crush,” “Campus Crush,” “Rich Witches,” “In A Perfect World,” or “Stranded at Sea”—and follow along, safe in the knowledge that, at certain points in the story, you’ll get to make choices that decide what happens next.
