Welcome to The Race Card Project! - The Race Card Project - 0 views

  •  
    "What you see here are candid submissions from people who have engaged in a little exercise. Here's how it works. Think about the word Race. How would you distill your thoughts, experiences or observations about race into one sentence that only has six words?"
    This National Public Radio blog makes the perfect starting point for a multicultural lesson for ESL/EFL students. The entries are sheer poetry and give a great deal of content to think about the issue of race and one's place in society, for better or worse. Each 6-word "poem" makes us, as one contributor said, "Look past race to underlying humanity."

Explain a Website demo video on Vimeo - 1 views

  •  
    Despite the explanatory text, this app is indeed ready to download for iPad ($0.99). This is a nice use of technology to explain other technologies. You go through a browser screen to a Website, then draw on the iPad screen to demonstrate functionality while the app records what you do. Publish to Evernote or YouTube. You will have to do your own audio over, however. What a cool app.

English Raven: Moodle Tutorial: Page design to avoid the 'scroll of death'... - 0 views

  •  
    "The idea here is to create a simple menu at the top of your Moodle course page that allows your learners to click and have only the relevant unit or cluster appear on the page. Essentially, this removes the 'scroll of death' issue if you find your learners are having to wade down through dozens of units to find something."

Life Feast: Draw and record your voice - 0 views

  •  
    "Drawing and recording your voice is not an easy task. What I've discovered is that once you start drawing, and your focus shifts to the image, there are few barriers to speaking.
    "The tool I'd like to share today is EDUCREATIONS (http://www.educreastions.com). I haven't explored it to its full potential but what I've seen so far is good enough. The free tool allows you use your mouse or your finger (ipad) to draw stick figures while you record your voice. You can also upload an image and draw and record your voice at the same time. Once finished, look at the right side below the twitter and facebook buttons for the URL and the embed code which allows you publish the recording."
    This tutorial shows how to sign up and use the tool, and there is an example from an EVO participant.
