Professor Pena’s Links – Web 2.0 & English

I ran across a posting from Leonardo Ornellas Pena, a professor in Brazil on the LinkedIn group Technology Integration in Education. He is interested in teaching English and using Web 2.0 tools to that end. His post pointed to a sub-set of the information on his Google-based English 2.0 site (“… a collection of free, innovative multimedia and Web-based resources that can be used for practicing, learning, and teaching English Language.”), which includes links to English language resources, web 2.0 tools, and a blog. The subpages of the just-listed pages include links to categories of suggestions (for English: Dictionaries, Learning, Listening, News, Phonetics, Teaching and Writing; for Web 2.0: Bookmarking, MindMaps, Picture Search, Podcasts, Presentation, Publication and Word Clouds). The blog page is at this point a few more links, including to his Blogger page for English learning links, which is well worth a look. It contains links to some fascinating sites. One that really struck me was a Phonetics site that shows someone making the basic sounds of English, along with diagrams that show what happens in the mouth and throat to produce the sound.


About Sigurd

Moved to rural Vermont in 1998, recently semi-retired. Intellect-oriented person (I spend a lot of time in my mind, have worked to broaden, regularly, the boundaries of what I pay attention to). One of my current interests is Goethe's approach to understanding the structures of the world (Science) and how it is different from Newton's approach. Goethe tried to stay open to what more the world might tell him of its nature, whereas Newton conceived frameworks that them became a window through which nature is viewed and understood.
