Lyrics Training

Lyrics Training | Adult Learning | Scoop.it

This is a fun website that challenges learners to fill in the gaps in song lyrics  as they watch a You Tube video. It was set up for EFL learners really but it can be used to provide learners with an opportunity to practise spelling high frequency words. If learners' typing speed lags behind the song, the music stops! Your 'score' can be recorded if you wish so there is also a competitive aspect too if required,

This is great fun. May sound obvious, but make sure you have sound available before you plan to use this - lots of classrooms don't, usually because it's the least maintained aspect of ICT.

I'm really excited by this site. Lots of adult literacy learners would like to turn their stories into books. Here's a very easy way to do it quickly. Make a powerpoint together, or a pdf document, and YUDU it. So rewarding!

Scoop.it

Scoop.it | Adult Learning | Scoop.it

Scoop it can be a really neat and effective way to provide learners with a set of weblinks that will help them carry out a focussed web search. It can also be used to provide a list of resources for background reading or revision. I hope this Scoop it is a good example!

I'm always looking for a forum to share links with tutors. Maybe this could be it? Let's experiment and see.

Make one of these challenging puzzles for your learners, print, laminate it, and cut it out. The difficult part is in setting the puzzle.

This tool makes screencasting incredibly easy. You just have to plan out what you want to say carefully, because if you make it too long, it will crash your computer. Warning: could end in tears! ;)
