SAT tests. Free economy course. GoClass - Create and Deliver Lessons on iPads. Last week I wrote about NearPod which is an iPad application for creating and delivering quizzes to students.

GoClass - Create and Deliver Lessons on iPads

This morning, through David Kapuler, I learned about a similar free iPad application called GoClass. GoClass is a free iPad application for creating short lessons and delivering them to your students. The lessons can include annotated images, free hand sketches, text, and video. GoClass gives teachers tools for creating class rosters that they can use to keep track of which students are using the lessons when. Teachers also have the option to ask questions and poll their students. Applications for EducationGoClass is a promising iPad app for teachers who are working in 1:1 iPad environments.

Aiden’s work was recognized recently with the GE & Science Prize for Young Life Scientists. “We don’t have perfect pictures yet,” Aiden said, “only blurry ones; but that’s much better than no picture at all.” Increase in interest in game-based language learning and teaching.

Increase in interest in game-based language learning and teaching

It’s been an enjoyable 5 weeks, with some great live sessions from special guest speakers and lots of sharing of ideas and enthusiasm in the Moodle forums. The TLLG Moodle won’t be around for long, but the highlights of the course will be archived on a wiki, , which we also hope will be a place that people can share links to lesson plans for online games they have used. During the EVO session, there also seems to have been evidence of an increased interest in games for language learning and teaching. Apart from the fact that 304 people signed up to be members of the TLLG Moodle, a figure much higher than we thought we’d have, we’ve also spotted the following: Leo Selivan shared his experience using Spent with a group of upper-intermediate learners, who were enthusiastic about the game and found it useful.

So, lots to read and think about there – and it’s only February.
