Letter Battle

Letter Battle is a super fun iOS app that I just downloaded for kids to work on their Spelling skills. This is a great RPG type game (grades 1st-4th) where a user can select their skill level and type of word (i.e. Science, School, Vacation, etc) to embark on an epic adventure. Basically, it works like any turn based strategy game but uses spelling as the means of attack. If a player spells the word wrong they will miss. The goal is to defeat enemies, collect power ups, and advance levels as they complete their quest. Best of all educator/parents can create custom word lists to integrate into the game.

LOTR Map of Middle Earth

Recently, I came across a interactive Lord of the Rings Map of Middle Earth. I know lots of schools and students are reading this so I thought I'd do a brief post on this. This is a great place to find facts about the interesting locations in Middle Earth as well as being able to zoom in/out, click on items, and find out other interesting facts (i.e. age, population, life expectancy, etc.) Also, there's an excellent timeline feature that people can use to find out info on all 5 books (Hobbit/Simarillion included). by Dave Kapuler.

LOVE English Awards

From Macmillan Publishers annually sponsor a "Love English" award contest for websites and blogs emphasizing support for English Language Learners. Useful as a way to learn about new sources of information on good English learning sites for ELLs. The list of nominated websites looks particularly interesting, though the list of blogs seems intriguing, too. One of the best is Teaching English - British Council.

Learning Environment

Learningpod

LearningPod is a new site that I just learned about from Richard Byrne's excellent blog. This is a great site for finding educational questions on any number of subjects. Students can use this to prepare for a test and even search by test type (ACT, SAT, etc). Best of all, the questions all come w/ explanation to the multiple choice answers.

Level it Books

Level it Books is the widely popular iOS app for scanning a books ISBN (bar code) and getting a Reading Level. This simple to use mobile app allows educators and parents to create a digital library of their students/kids books along w/ Reading Level. Also, an educator can use it to create a digital roster of their students w/ their Reading Level assigned which makes it easier for assessing purposes. Also, a user can add or manually search for a book and find a well liked K-8 "book of the day".

LessonPaths

I just wanted to share a brief post that MentorMobEDU the excellent site for creating "learning" playlists on the web, has just changed their name to LessonPaths. Everything else will remain the same. For those that are unfamiliar w/ MentorMob, this is an excellent site for curating the web into learning playlists that can be used for a number of different teaching styles, such as: guided learning, differentiated instruction, and even flipping a classroom.

MentorMobEDU is now LessonPaths

Two Well-Done "Language Maps"

Here are new additions to The Best "Language Maps": From The U.S. Census: The U.S. Census Bureau today released an interactive, online map pinpointing the wide array of languages spoken in homes across the nation, along with a detailed report on rates of English proficiency and the growing number of speakers of other languages. The 2011 Language Mapper shows where people speaking specific languages other than English live, with dots representing how many people speak each of 15 different languages. For each language, the mapper shows the concentration of those who report that they speak English less than "very well," a measure of English proficiency. The tool uses data collected through the American Community Survey from 2007 to 2011. Mapping where English is not the language at home is a somewhat similar map from The Washington Post.

Little Kids Learn a Foreign Language the Easiest (Unraveling Secrets of Bilingualism)

Do you sometimes feel like you're banging your head against a brick wall when trying to learn a second language? Well, it's not your fault, according to a new research report that came out last month. The best time to learn a foreign language: Between birth and age 7. Missed that window? New research is showing just how children's brains can become bilingual so easily, findings that scientists hope eventually could help the rest of us learn a new language a bit easier. "We think the magic that kids apply to this learning situation, some of the principles, can be imported into learning programs for adults," says Dr. Patricia Kuhl of the University of Washington, who is part of an international team now trying to turn those lessons into more teachable technology.

LANGUAGE RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS

Linguistic Data Consortium University of Pennsylvania

ELDA

Evaluations and Language resources Distribution Agency Ė is ELRAís operational body, set up to identify, classify, collect, validate and produce the language resources which may be needed by the HLT Ė Human Language Technology Ė community. Besides, ELDA is involved in HLT evaluation campaigns.

ELRA

In order to achieve this goal, ELRA is active in identification, distribution, collection, validation, standardisation, improvement, in promoting the production of language resources, in supporting the infrastructure to perform evaluation campaigns and in developing a scientific field of language resources and evaluation.

Link Sites for English Study

Dave's ESL Cafe - Web Guide

LANGUAGE INFORMATION CENTERS OR PORTALS

CMS / LMS

LMS

Compares and reviews 35 Learning Management Systems.

The Sloan-C listserv discussed options from several perspectives. Administratively, institutions find commercial LMSs attractive because vendors promise longevity, stability, reliability, technical support, comprehensive packages for communications, student-and-faculty-friendly design, and compatibility with central data systems for automated integration with records, accounts, and registration. However, administrative drawbacks include costs and a complex selection process for choosing an affordable LMS. For example, eArmyU cited 15 categories with nearly 50 desirable functions as the minimum LMS features. A useful service at http://www.edutools.info/course/

productinfo/index.jsp compares 35 LMSs in 10 categories and 33 features. Organizations like ADL, IMS, CARAT and OKI are developing standards and providing resources to help guarantee the best, evolving and changing systems, to keep costs reasonable, and to enable faculty to access, refine and control content and design. Meanwhile, as more institutions share resources, enabling faculty to create material on the web for all courses, online, face-to-face, and blended, is a wise investment. We also need to ask: How do LMSs affect students? ... Does stepping through different content provide the critical thinking, personalization and competencies that help learning thrive?
