A New Interactive Video Tool

Zaption provides free interactive video tools and ready-to-use video lessons to engage learners. Instead of making sts watch a video first and asking questions to them later, you may do these actions at the same time and save time.
LEVEL: All levels
 Eg: http://zapt.io/tgums86w – Choose the video that you want ( may be taken from Youtube or uploaded from your own computer) and stop the video at some specific points that you want your students to question. Add comments, texts, discussion questions and many more from the task bar above. Just drag the items from the task bar and write your question for the second of the video that you want.
 After introducing a grammar topic, or before introducing it, you may come up with a video and make a speaking session with them.

TAGUL – Let’s make Word Clouds!

Visualising the Language
 Tagul is an online word cloud generator that enables you to create amazing and unique word cloud art with ease. A great way to connect language to an image.
LEVEL: All levels
 We all ask our sts. to read the questions before reading the actual reading text. This web site is the best when it comes to warm up before reading sessions. You may copy and paste all the words in the text or just copy the target ones and create ‘a tagul visual text’. Make a discussion with your students before reading the text and make them guess the content of the text by focusing on specific words.

An enjoyable form of making QUIZZES!


 Flip Quiz™ provides educators with a quick way to create your own gameshow-style boards for test reviews in the classroom. With Flip Quiz™, questions are displayed on-screen and boards are saved for later use. Combined with a beautiful board, students are more likely to be interested and stay engaged with the test review process.
LEVEL: All levels as it is in the quiz format. You may arrange the level according to your class.
 Instead of making boring quizzes in order to assess the knowledge of students on a specific topic, you can make Flip Quiz boards and have fun in class!
 You can even use the pre-made general knowledge quizzes and grammar based ones in your class.

4- Then, when you click on the CREATE button, you are ready for this enjoyable journey.
– Enter a name for your quiz. After that, you will be asked to search for a video that you’ll use during the quiz. You may write the name of the video or a key word so that Youtube will search it for you.
6- When you choose the video you want to use, crop it. Don’t forget that the video length is limited to 20 seconds.
7- Now, you are ready to add questions for your quiz. It is extremely easy, isn’t it? 🙂 You’ll be shocked by the results!!!!

social-media-in-educationFor a long time I have been thinking about what to write as a first entry in my new blog! You will be able to follow the recent updates related to the uses of  web 2.0 tools in English Classes. If you want to know who am I, please check ‘About Me’ page. I can easiliy say that I love reading about educational technology and on a daily basis I follow hundreds of websites on the issue. I formed a word document consisting of those website links that I frequently use  Day by day, I will add more news and activities that may be used during the English courses.Actually, I don’t want to cause a misunderstanding. What I mean is that most of  the apps and activities can be modified in order to use them in another lesson

spelling bee logoHere we go! 🙂 The first activity I want to share with you is Oxford Dictionaries Spelling Bee. When you visit  http://blog.oxforddictionaries.com, you will find out many opportunities to jazz up your class with various technological tools. This one is an amazing one as it will help your students not only to learn new vocabulary but also improve their spelling. When you open the link Oxford Dictionaries Spelling Bee, you will see 3 different levels and 2 different accents in English. After choosing the accent to practise, select the difficulty level and enjoy your time! 🙂 You will see that after you get your score, you can examine your mistakes as well as listening how those words are pronounced.
