A Wonderful Exercise in Creative Thinking

A Wonderful Exercise in Creative Thinking | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This morning Sir Ken Robinson tweeted this excellent video clip that is basically a creative thinking exercise done with third graders. The lesson that  the video highlights is the importance of how teachers word their questions. Students creativity, as is shown from this experiment, is tightly linked to the way the teacher put his\her question.

Learn Languages Via Subtitles While Watching Movies With LaMP

Learn Languages Via Subtitles While Watching Movies With LaMP | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

A really great way to get good at a foreign language is to watch films that have subtitles in the language you’re learning; this allows you to correlate what you hear with definite, discrete words, and thus enhance your pronunciation. LaMP or Lingual Media Player is a Windows program that can play any film you load into it while reading its SRT (subtitles) file that you have stored on your computer. You can, in fact, have LaMP read two subtitles files simultaneously; one of the language you’re learning, and the other of your native tongue, so you always know what’s going on. What’s more, if you’re suspicious of a potential translating mistake, you can confirm it instantly, using the onboard translation service that’s hooked up with Microsoft Bing and Google Translate. Fascinating! Or should I say 迷人 instead?
