ESL Teacher Resources, Job Boards, and Worksheets The Best Places To Learn Web 2.0 Basics When it comes to technology, I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer (not to mention being sort of a Luddite). I need things very, very simple. I thought it would be helpful to a list of the sites that I’ve found most helpful and accessible in explaining how to use key Web 2.0 tools like blogs, wikis, Flickr, social bookmarking, RSS readers, etc. You can also find links to the sites I list here, and many more, on the Teachers’ Page on my website. There are three sites that I think stand above all the others. One is Sue Waters’ Mobile Technology In TAFE Wiki. It would probably be okay to stop reading right here, since these three sites more than likely can provide you with all the information you need. However, there are a few more excellent resources you might want to check-out if you have the time. There are two other places that offer exceptional information on a number of Web 2.0 tools. Other sites have good resources for specific tools. (I’m also adding John Pearce’s Tutorials) ).

Teenagers and UK culture Why bring UK culture to the teen classroom? We can introduce UK culture into the English classroom to help our students improve their English and at the same time learn about values and ways of doing things which may be different to theirs. Learning about life and culture in the UK can be very motivating as it brings the language alive for learners and creates a link between language and real life. See if you agree with these comments from teachers on teaching UK culture to their teenage learners: ‘We need to avoid reinforcing erroneous British stereotypes to our teenagers. Not everyone in the UK is very formal and drinks tea at five o’clock!’ ‘Culture is the fifth skill in addition to reading, writing, listening and speaking. ‘I try to make British culture "real" to my students. What materials can I use to introduce UK culture? Life in the UK In this section teenagers can read about topics with a British connection. Learning the language doesn’t automatically mean learning the culture.

The Super Book of Web Tools for Educators Whether you’re new to education technology or a seasoned professional, there’s always something new to learn when it comes to edtech. There’s a new app or tool announced just about every day. Lucky for you, sites like Edudemic try to keep their finger on the pulse of what’s happening in this space. Sometimes though, teachers and administrators come together and assemble an incredible resource that’s able to benefit any educator at any skill level in any grade. It’s called the ‘ Super Book of Web Tools for Educators ‘ and was uploaded about a year ago. I’ve embedded the book below.

English is all around! Moteurs de recherche d'images « libres de droits » — Enseigner avec le numérique Comme l'évoque le site Documentation Rouen, « les moteurs traditionnels de recherche, comme Google, Bing, Yahoo ou Ask offrent la possibilité de rechercher des images, mais les droits liés à l’utilisation de ces dernières ne sont généralement pas précisés : droit de l’information, droit de l’image, droit à l’image ». Des filtres par type de licence sont néanmoins parfois proposés par certains de ces outils. Des métamoteurs comme LibreStock et Photos for Class vont plus loin encore car ils permettent d'interroger en une seule fois une multiplicité de réservoirs. LibreStock s'inscrit dans cette démarche de collecte de reproductions placées sous licence CCO (domaine public) car il indexe différentes bases iconographiques spécifiques comme Pexels, Pixabay, Picjumbo ou Magdaleine. En complément, il est intéressant de signaler une autre initiative assez similaire baptisée Photos for Class. Sources Réseaux et médias sociaux

ESL EFL Teaching Activities Worksheets Games Helen Keller Helen Keller, född 27 juni 1880 i Tuscumbia i Alabama, död 1 juni 1968 i Westport i Connecticut, var en amerikansk författare, aktivist och föreläsare.

Describe an Imaginary Place or Strange Land Summer is a season of travel, a time of sandy beaches, hypnotic sunshine, stamped tickets, and the excited laughter of children visiting out-of-the-ordinary places. Summer vacations—and the summer months—fill our minds with those moments of wonder and imagination so natural to childhood and keep us connected to our own children. But sometimes the household budget doesn’t stretch quite far enough for exotic adventures. What to do? Go anyway! Here’s how! Start with a Map Gather your family around the kitchen table with paper, pencils, pens, and an atlas. Set Your Imagination Loose It’s time to describe an imaginary place! What color is the sky? Are there trees or flowering plants? Place yourself there. What kind of person—or wonderful being—could you allow yourself to be there? Create Your World As ideas shape themselves around your kitchen table, have your children create colorful maps and illustrated “travel guides” of their visionary worlds. Enjoy your magical travels this summer!
