Has some great functions for capturing web-based materials and independently created documents.  May be a quick quiz or assignment tool for reading and language development...

It's a great resource for CLILing a class.
Caitlyn Frame's curator insight, June 7, 2013 11:42 PM

There are many video resources to be found on this page that engage and inform students across a variety of topics. These would act as a great starting point to enable students to critique and begin investigating a particular topic and the needs it is meeting.

This is an interesting app for both iPhone and Android. You can practice dialogues with a virtual character. There is some free content, but the app runs on subscriptions (£2.99 a month). Worth giving a try though to see how it works for you.

Vinicius Silva's comment, August 23, 2013 1:25 PM
I've used some of its free contents with my elementary students at college and it worked quite well. They loved the interaction with the characters and the repetition practice was very useful as well. Worth a try!
