instaGrok | A new way to learn

instaGrok | A new way to learn | Web 2.0 Tools in the EFL Classroom | Scoop.it

instaGrok is a visual search engine and interactive learning tool collects educational content and displays it in the form of a web of related words. The tool is very appealing because it offers a variety of multimedia features to meet the unique learning needs of students. In addition to the visual map, content is displayed in the form of text, images, video and web links. Better yet, students can use the handy slider tool to self select the level of difficulty of the results displayed  which provides them with access usable information.

Susan's insight:

I have just had a look at this and think it could be a great tool for project work.  Students type in any topic and the tool generates a 'GROK' which is a type of mind-map with all related topics.  You can then simplify and personalize your Grok by adding pins, eliminating unwanted info, creating personal notes, etc... Edmodo allows you to launch the App directly from your Edmodo site too which is convenient.  It looks a bit confusing at first but I think it's worth a look!

Word Booster

Susan's insight:
Take any English article, paste the link in the Word Booster tool search, and watch the magic! It creates vocabulary lists, exercises and QR code to the article too! It's hard to find digital tools that can offer something new... I haven't been here for awhile for that reason but this one is worth mentioning!

Carolyn Quarterman's curator insight, August 3, 2016 1:08 PM
Looks potentially useful for collecting and  learning phrases, idioms, etc. but haven't played with yet.
Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, August 11, 2016 8:20 PM
If you are looking for specific, but new phrases to use, this may be of interest to you.  People collect their own phrases, idioms and collocations and use them in sentences to show how they are used. It's much like a vocabulary list, but instead of words, there are phrases.

Classroom on the App Store

Classroom turns your iPad into a powerful teaching assistant, helping a teacher guide students through a lesson, see their progress, and keep them on track. With Classroom, you can easily launch the same app on every student device at the same time or launch a different app for each group of students. Classroom helps teachers focus on teaching so students can focus on learning.

What is the purpose of school & the role of EdTech?

Via L. García Aretio
Susan's insight:
Enjoyed reading this and we all need to reflect.  Why do we send our children to school? What do we really want them to learn?What role should technology have? Can technology work without the teacher? Of course not! We need to integrate technology and get both teachers and students engaged and motivated to learn once again.  We need a new way of teaching and learning.  And yes, if used wisely, technology can be of great use!
