Thinking Critically through Digital Media

Thinking Critically through Digital Media | CQ_dig_ reading & writing tools | Scoop.it

In a world where anyone with an internet connection can access, create and share information, opinions and beliefs, it has become increasingly important that students are not only able to assess the credibility of sources but also to look more deeply at the underlying motivations, beliefs and bias of the creator.
Thinking Critically through Digital Media enables teachers to use authentic materials and digital tools combined with motivating communicative tasks to develop students’ abilities to function as critical and well informed digital citizens.

Ludwig - Find your sentence

Ludwig - Find your sentence | CQ_dig_ reading & writing tools | Scoop.it
Find the perfect English sentence to express each one of your ideas and write like a pro
Carolyn Quarterman's insight:
This site allows you to type a phrase or collocation, of any length it seems, and see search results from articles and pages across the internet that use the phrase, or a variation of it. Ideally, then, students can see if they're using the phrase correctly or in the typical context. It seems very promising for upper or advanced students as perhaps a supplemental resource. The article about the site is interesting, too:  https://techcrunch.com/2016/08/05/online-linguistic-search-engine-ludwig-helps-get-your-english-on/

Good for reading, but also for listening and pronunciation. I have my pronunciation students use this site for "tracking" or imitating the rhythm and intonation of the story teller. Learners can pause the story, repeat, and then continue. Closed captions also possible.

This looks good but it is not free. Universities already offer it for free to their students.
