15 Great Audiobooks for Helping Kids Read Better ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | ESL Resources secondary education | Scoop.it
The puzzling question that is often posed when talking about audiobooks' integration in the teaching and learning of literacy is whether they have the same cognitive benefits as the actual reading. In other words , can listening to audiobooks be considered reading? Well, the answer does require a rigorous scientific study; however, what is certain here is that listening to audiobooks and reading both require serious engagement with the content for deep and critical understanding to take place

SLS Guernsey's curator insight, November 8, 2014 8:54 AM

Audio books are a really important tool to encourage reading for pleasure. Take a look at this because it also gives links to free audio resources. 

Cheryl Turner's curator insight, November 8, 2014 1:01 PM

short on the research but a nice graphic... probably some good recommendations.

Samuel Johnson-Taylor's curator insight, September 16, 11:17 AM
I believe this is this is very helpful for struggling readers because listening is different from actual reading and I think it can be utilized in schools everywhere not only just kids. I agree with the Audiobooks being compared to reading because its like reading in your Head.

A big thanks to Sandie who has discovered this tool!

The spinning wheel can help you improve your knowledge of irregular verb forms. Ideal as a quick warmer or filler, focussing on the spelling of the verb forms.

19 Picture Books That Teach Important Life Lessons

19 Picture Books That Teach Important Life Lessons | ESL Resources secondary education | Scoop.it
Can picture books teach life lessons? I think so. To find life lessons, I went to some original sources … life lessons from a 90-year-old woman and a 99-year-old man. Their words of wisdom were similar and it’s about living well to live long.

I added in a few life lessons that I’ve found along the way and the picture books that help to illustrate it. How about you? What life lessons resonate for you? Please do share!

Visuals for Foreign Language Instruction

Visuals for Foreign Language Instruction | ESL Resources secondary education | Scoop.it

The title says it all.

This site contains hundreds of visual aids (illustrations) that can be used to support instructional tasks such as describing objects and people (i.e., teaching vocabulary) or describing entire events and situations (i.e., teaching grammar). You can also use it to make your  worksheets look more interesting, especially when Google Images fails to provide you with appropriate image.
