Last Friday, I presented a webinar for EuroCALL's corpus SIG. And today, I have recorded the PPT and uploaded it YouTube. The best way to enter it is via the webinar's webpage.
The presentation demonstrates dozens of discovery activities that students can be tasked with doing when they are using SkELL and VersaText. In the process of making their language discoveries, they are answering their questions, processing data, drawing conclusions which they then depict in a wide range of visual representations. The language discoveries they make are about text, grammar, vocabulary and everything in between.
On 1st July, the Versatile E-learning site is embarking on its maiden voyage. It has had a dry run with some teacher training courses for my teachers here in Tashkent. But in July, we enter international waters. This is no mean feat when you're in one of the only double-landlocked countries in the world. 🙂
The e-learning courses are mainly intended to add an interactive dimension to Versatile books.
The first course to open revolves around Discovering English with VersaText.

The course is free, by the way. At least it is at the moment.
