Helpful collection of educational apps organized by grade levels and categories

Karen E Smith's curator insight, October 25, 2014 8:57 AM

Every teacher should create a list of apps that work/don't work for their teaching purposes.

I really appreciate the early childhood apps. I'm gonna recommend them to my students' parents

The 'Preposition poster' has learners visualise different places and movements towards places, thus helping them locate people and actions in English.

The poster does remind of classic -and effective- diagrams from ESL textbooks.

Dans les années 1960, le rock est un véritable laboratoire littéraire dans une société en plein questionnement. Ses paroles prennent une tournure à la fois plus poétique et plus engagée [...], le rock devient à la fois un mouvement artistique qui acquiert une légitimité intellectuelle et un courant de contre-culture.littérature, rock, musique

Indeed ! Le rock représente une source pertinente et extrêmement fournie d'inspiration pour les enseignants d'anglais qui souhaitent mettre en musique part de l'apprentissage et faire découvrir des poètes étiquetés tout d'abord 'musiciens' ou 'chanteurs'.

Le rock anglophone peut se faire vecteur de poésie, d'images, d'idées et combats, de réflexion(s) : l'on y trouvera moultes sources d'illustration de thèmes, notions et problématiques abordées dans les programmes d'anglais.

Les 'lyrics' de multiples chanteurs et groupes rock furent pour moi l'antichambre de la langue anglaise, voilà pourquoi le genre musical garde bonne place dans ma discothèque : premiers mots, premiers sons anglais à mes oreilles, bien avant de les entendre & apprendre au collège -je vous parle d'un temps...  ;o)

They have also been the most important modern vehicles for one of the oldest and most significant of American cultural myths - the myth of the frontier. The course surveys the development of the Western film genre and sets it in historical and cultural context. In addition to viewing 20 or more feature films, we will study some of the precinematic sources of Western themes and images (novels, paintings). There will also be readings in the history of movies, critical and cultural theory, and political history"

Monica Mirza's curator insight, May 26, 2014 10:52 AM

This Pinterest board was created by Shanneon Grant & Kellie Berg (La Crosse Public Library in La Crosse - Wisconsin).

It displays projects and ideas that all reuse books pages : the board shows quite creative ways of twisting the original purpose and use of books and.... I'm fond of these !! Just glance at this surprising book fairy costume, to a rolled book page wreath, to the paper star decorating a door, or... worth your visiting !

- - - - - -

As for ESL-EFL, I think it might also be a nice way of "demythologizing" books and reading to learners that sometimes really don't get along with -no matter if the activities get performed outside English class rooms.

Somehow, mingling books printed words with craft and art may then turn them more familiar and friendly :)

Brilliant  brainfriendly grammar resource. Motivating, short grammar movies in context with a pause for the students to repeat.. Students could do role playing drills, and them act the dialogue in pairs, record or film themselves with a phone.

 

Storytelling with pictures and explanations. Besides grammar, enables the students  to practice comprehension, pronunciation,  vocabulary .

 

Good for flipped classroom , blended learning, but great to use in class to..

 

Example: a love story:Past simple or present perfect simple or continuous? |

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XqP8RL2Nlc&feature=share&list=PLA6AEFFFF35FE8B79

 

In my opinion, all grammars should be based on these principles. Very few are.

Monica Mirza's curator insight, February 26, 2014 11:56 AM

I've just thought of asking every student to reorder the verbs in this chart (one page only -otherwise they might get lost), according to what they think is their own personal frequency of use. Then, they should create a sentence for the 5 most/least used ones : first they'd choose a topic, so that they might relate the 10 sentences with each other to create a (very) short story. Hmm... hope I'm being plain enough. Shall possibly refine the exercise instructions later on.

It's the very useful table. 

But there is a problem.

When people are thinking about how to say, they can't think what to say .

And when people are thinking about what to say, they can't think how to say .

Because we have only one place in our brain to think with words - it's Broka's Area.

There is a simple way to solve the problem.

It is a visual thinking.

And I have new tool for it. It names "Lingvomap".
