How Do You Say That? The 10 Coolest Pronunciation Tools for ESL Students

  • How Do You Say That? The 10 Coolest Pronunciation Tools for ESL Students
  • "ESL students struggle with a lot of things.
  • Many of these they can practice with the use of self-study materials. They can do as many grammar exercises as they want; they can work with audio and video to improve listening; they can even join native English speakers in their free time for some extra speaking practice.
  • But it is not likely they will correct your students’ pronunciation. Pronunciation is one of those things that only teachers correct – in the classroom. Friends and acquaintances will usually let pronunciation mistakes slide for the sake of keeping the conversation flowing.
  • So what can your students do in their self-study time to improve their pronunciation? In today’s technological age, the best solutions to any of our problems are usually found online or in apps. And here some pronunciation tools you can recommend to your ESL students."

Say What? 5 Ways to Get Students to Listen

  • Say What? 5 Ways to Get Students to Listen
    by Rebecca Alber Edutopia Consulting Online Editor
  • "Ah, listening, the neglected literacy skill. I know when I was a high school English teacher this was not necessarily a primary focus; I was too busy honing the more measurable literacy skills -- reading, writing, and speaking.
  • But when we think about career and college readiness, listening skills are just as important. This is evidenced by the listening standards found in the Common Core and also the integral role listening plays in collaboration and communication, two of the four Cs of 21st century learning.
  • So how do we help kids become better listeners? Check out these tactics for encouraging a deeper level of listening that also include student accountability."
  • Five Tips for New Teachers to Become Connected Educators
  • "This month, the U.S. Department of Education kicked off Connected Educator Month, with engaging keynotes, panel discussions, book chats, and more.
  • During this month, educators in the U.S. and globally will have opportunities to connect themselves and their communities, online and in-person, to support their professional practice. The timing couldn't be better, as most teachers are preparing to hit the ground running as they gear up for back-to-school!"

Teacher's note

  • "I have seen many students come to the UK thinking they had a good level of English, FCE for example, but still struggle at doing basic things like talking to bus drivers or shop assistants. It's sometimes quite important to teach students "real" English instead of that boring, artificial and antiseptic textbook stuff.
  • Here is an example. How often do your students come into class with the odd and imperative sounding "Hello! How are you?" instead of the more natural sounding and (in the UK) now ubiquitous "Hiya! Y'alright?"
  • How many of us actually teach them to use "Hiya!", "Alright?" or "Cheers!" or "See ya!"?
  • Yet, informally, this is how most people in the UK actually speak to each other.
  • So, anyway, here are some informal expressions you won't find in many coursebooks or in any exams  but you will definitely hear when you come to the UK.
  • Warning. Be careful when you use some of these expressions. They are informal and a few may not be suitable for use in class, to your teacher or boss."

  • The quality of these presentations is variable; when used well Prezi can be a fabulous communication tool, but when used badly it can leave the audience feeling bamboozled, and potentially slightly sea-sick… There’s a lot of academic interest to it, so with that in mind here’s a brief guide."

5 Demands Placed on Students in a 1:1

  • "1. Manage the Technology: In addition to learning and completing assignments students have an array or responsibilities simply in managing the device.  The device needs to be charged, apps and programs need to be updated so that they continue to function correctly.
  • At first students and perhaps parents may scoff at the idea that these tasks are part of learning. It can be hard to keep them accountable for them, but just as important as it is to have paper, a pen, a PE uniform or safety goggles, having a functioning device is key to being “ready to learn.”"

  • Got iPads? Get a WiPad!
  • "If you are an innovative educator whose school has moved to iPads in the classroom, you need a WiPad. Unlike Apple TV it does not require network connections or IDs. Unlike an interactive whiteboard you can get up and away from the board and into class.
  • Just snap your iPad into the WiPad case, attach the battery to the back of the case, and connect that to WiPad and iPad with a cable. Place the receiver on your TV or projector and voilà! You’re ready to share whatever is on your iPad (i.e. apps, audio, video) with the class.  
  • What’s nice about the wireless device is that not only can the teacher be anywhere in the class, but the projecting iPad can also be given to a student to share their work as well. can just connect the WiPad to a student device.
  • Unlike an interactive whiteboard that requires training, keeps you tethered to the front of the room, and costs thousands, consider a WiPad Pro. It works on an iPad 2 or 3 and runs for $299." 

There is More to iPads in the Classroom Than Apps

  • "I have teachers ask  me frequently about app recommendations for different subject areas.

    • “What app could I use to teach subtraction?”
    • “What app would you recommend for my students to practice writing?”
    • “I want to use iPads in my Science class. What app is good for that?”

  • I usually sigh to myself, when I receive questions like that. While I am not against in suggesting apps ( which I love doing), I am not comfortable with the level of disconnect between the teacher (who knows her/his students best) and the curriculum related skills and objectives and pedagogical relationship that needs to be in place for an app to be a match to use in a classroom or with an individual learner.
  • In a recent article, titled ” How the iPad Can Transform Classrooms” by Ben Johnson on Edutopia, raises awareness of the difference between using the iPad as a way to teach students versus the iPad as a tool to learn for students."

  • And yet single iPad classrooms are probably still the most common iPad implementation we see in classrooms.
  • It’s true that iPad carts and 1:1 implementations are on the rise, but there are a bunch of you out there, as we head into 2014, who are still getting by with a single device.
  • So I’ve chosen a subset of my favorite ideas from the article and am sharing them here. The article is written for iPads, but it’s a generic list and can be used for any type of tablet or smart device.
  • The original article was authored by Margie Brown of Eanes (TX) Independent School District. The lists here are based on a survey that Margie conducted with teachers with single iPad classrooms."

How to Block Access to Adult Content & Websites on iPhone & iPad

  • How to Block Access to Adult Content & Websites on iPhone & iPad
  • "Apple has long included various means of placing parental controls and filtering for content available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but up until recent iOS updates there was not a simple method of blocking web-based adult content and material in Safari.
  • That has changed with iOS 7, which makes it extremely easy to prevent access to adult themed web sites and general content that is deemed inappropriate for youth.
  • The web restrictions are very easy to toggle on and off and access to them is password restricted, which makes it perfect to quickly turn on before handing an iOS device off to a youngin’ for unsupervised use."

Air Sketch: Wireless Whiteboard for the iPad

  • Air Sketch: Wireless Whiteboard for the iPad
  • "Turn your iPad into a wireless whiteboard! Annotate PDF documents and images live. You can now project PDF documents (such as exported PowerPoint or Keynote decks) to a computer on the same local network, then annotate them in real time, all from your iPad."
  • "Air Sketch is great for presentations in the boardroom, classroom, or on the go. Just fire up Air Sketch on the iPad and open the specified URL from any HTML-5 compatible browser on the local network. Your photos and drawings show up natively in the browser. There's no proprietary client software to install, or services to subscribe to."
  • "No longer be tethered to the podium! Connect your laptop to a projector to present and draw from your iPad as you walk around the room. You can also easily pass your iPad around to allow others to contribute."
  • Nik Peachey's insight:
  • "This looks like a very useful free app that also has integration with AirPlay. Looks like a good way of replacing an IWB for free."

OPINION: Why Chromebooks Should Rule The School

  • "I help schools think through hardware choices, deployment logistics, cost and on-going manageability. I spend most of my time with district public schools in Oakland, where there are sometimes enough devices for 1:1 simultaneous use.
  • But nowhere in our pilots do kids have their own unique device that they can personalize as their own. Devices stay in a single classroom for the next group of students.
  • Despite my best effort to stay “device agnostic,” lately I find myself increasingly recommending Chromebooks.
  • Below I lay out my reasons. Despite some twists and turns, my hope is that this line of thinking can help more schools make their own decisions about what works best for them--even if they don’t go Chrome. (Disclosure: I use a MacBook for my daily work and I love it.)"

Creating a Quiz or taking a Poll on the iPad

  • "I love the fact that the iPad can be used to assess student understanding instantly. I think these Quiz and Poll apps actually give the students the power to direct lessons as opposed to teachers making assumptions about where their kids are at in their learning.
  • Below is a list of apps that allow teachers to create and hold a quiz or poll in their class. A great way to start a lesson to ensure you pitch the lesson at the right level or even to use as a exit poll. Find one that suits you and your students. "

  • Reciclar es recolectar materiales que ya se han usado para hacer con ellos cosas nuevas.
  • Así evitamos que los residuos vayan a la basura y contaminen. Por ejemplo, con el papel periódico , podemos hacer cartones de huevo.
  • El proceso de reciclar se debe iniciar en el mismo lugar donde se producen los residuos: - Hogar, - Oficina, - Escuela, - etc."
