A TOOL FOR COLLABORATIVE INTERPRETATION OF TEXTS
Prism is a tool for "crowdsourcing interpretation." Users are invited to provide an interpretation of a text by highlighting words according to different categories, or "facets." Each individual interpretation then contributes to the generation of a visualization which demonstrates the combined interpretation of all the users. We envision Prism as a tool for both pedagogical use and scholarly exploration, revealing patterns that exist in the subjective experience of reading a text.
Survey Results: Mobile learning for ELT http://bit.ly/bKdh0L Survey Results: Mobile learning for ELT
The purpose of the survey was to ascertain the level of awareness and openness to mobile learning among English language teachers.
I also wanted to find out to what degree and how teachers were already using mobile learning both in their teaching and and professional development and to establish whether they would be willing to pay for and use mobile content.
The survey also collected information about the teachers’ existing access to mobile services and the kinds of device they are using to get access to mobile Internet.
