5 great tools for your learners

Blogger, Edmodo, Google Drive, Tackk, Spreaker… such amazing tools — in the hands of your learners

Below, links to some of the tasks and tools mentioned in my session today at this year's edition of the IH Barcelona ELT Conference.

Easy, productive task learners can use technology for
These are the seven tasks I proposed — some of which I've not yet posted here  but will do in the next few days:

  1. The Editors — using a digital space like Edmodo, or Blogger, or a private G+ Community to create a digital class magazine
  2. Digital storytelling, using a single photograph as the starting prompt for a collaborative, creative writing project
  3. DRPC: Discuss, research, present and comment, using an app to measure how much exercise the learners take
  4. Podcasting: 60 seconds to save the world, using Spreaker
  5. Tape poetry for creative classrooms, with WhatsApp and Instagram
  6. 10 towns, a "getting to know each other" activity using Edmodo
  7. Independent mobile learning using an app
