Free Technology for Teachers: 10 Sites and Apps for Vocabulary and Spelling Practice

Free Technology for Teachers: 10 Sites and Apps for Vocabulary and Spelling Practice | ESL Instructional Design | Scoop.it
Last night I watched the conclusion of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. A recap of the finals is available on the Associated Press YouTube channel. Like many others who watched the finals, I have to admit that there were some new-to-me words in the final rounds. That reminded me that I have a bunch of sites and apps in my archives that can help students learn new vocabulary words and practice spelling new words.

Storytelling tools for ESL students #1 Storybird | ESL Instructional Design | Scoop.it

I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.

10 Characteristics Of A Highly Effective Learning Environment | ESL Instructional Design | Scoop.it

"Wherever we are, we’d all like to think our classrooms are “intellectually active” places. Progressive learning (like our 21st Century Model, for example) environments. Highly effective and conducive to student-centered learning. But what does that mean?

Ruby Day's curator insight, June 18, 2014 3:24 PM

These criteria really outline some solid  principles that should direct our planning and thus be evident in our learning environments. Principles such as: student enquiry, work readiness, personalised learning, flexibility, authentic and transparent assessment. I like the focus on critical thinking here :)

Sue Alexander's curator insight, June 21, 2014 5:02 PM

Great scoop Beth. I love the goal of "intellectually active" classrooms.
