with Technology
By
De Vega, Fernando
Fraiese, Lucía
Kramer, Jackie
Rossell, David
Técnicas Informáticas- 2014
Teacher: Maria Laura García
The internet provides many examples of spoken
language and opportunities for practicing L2 speaking
and listening skills.
It allows us to choose updated material and, most
importantly, material our students like.
Why use the Internet?

Is the spelling and grammar correct?
Is the content dated or updated?
Authority and coverage
Does the content have authority?
Are the authors qualified to provide information on this
topic?
Can the author be contacted?
Where is the content published? What is the domain
name of the website? Is it published by a large
organisation, or on a personal website?
Does the site provide information/advice/ideas/other
choices?
Does the site contain any advertising? Does this
influence the content?
Audience and relevance
Who is the intended audience for this content?
Is the content easy to read and understand?
Is the site specifically aimed at children? If so, is the level
and tone of the content appropriate?
Does the material provide everything that is needed?
Educational focus

English
Central
English Central breaks
down videos everybody
enjoys to maximize the
learning experience and
focus on multiple aspects
of the language at the
same time
http://www.englishcentral.com/
What is English Central?
● Database of hundreds of
videos
● Each video is split in 4
tasks:
o Listening
o Vocabulary
o Writing
o Speaking
● Scoring system
● Repository for learnt words
● Track of learning process
Positive Aspects
The site is very user-friendly and makes the experience of using the website enjoyable. A scoring
system is included.
Positive Aspects
The videos included appeal different age groups. A multiplicity of topics are developed in the
videos, ranging from documentaries to short stories and movie trailers. These are classified by
skills, difficulty level and interests.
Positive Aspects
Focus is made on different aspects of the language: phonology, morphology, meaning and use in
context.
Negative Aspects
Additional equipment (microphone) is required
Negative Aspects
Subscription is required to access the
content. Although Facebook can be
easily used to log in, not everybody
has Facebook or wants to use the
account for this purpose.
The site may be set to Spanish, which
impoverishes the whole website
experience.
Negative Aspects
The site is mostly self paced, which is good if the teacher can
closely monitor the students activity. Otherwise, students may
not follow the instructions accordingly.
English Central in the Classroom
Competitions: getting the highest
score/leadership board Testing
English Central in the Lesson
1) Select a video (Take into account target group’s interests, level and the
topic that is being discussed in the unit.
2) Play the video to the whole group and focus on certain language elements.
Practice pronunciation via drilling exercises. Have students guess the
meaning of certain words.
2) Have students explore the entire video and carry out the activities as a
competition. Whoever gets the higher score wins.

my.englishclub.com
my.englishclub.com is a
social network that spins off
the website
englishclub.com. In many
ways it works as Facebook
and its main objective is
fostering interaction and
communication in English
among online English
learners.
Positive aspects
Content in this site can
be updated by all
members and therefore
students may find varied
topics. This also means
content is constantly
updated.
Students have access to
videos, photos and blogs
specialized in different
areas or integrated skills.
what´s more
Students can start their own discussion groups
or join existing ones.
Students can chat with other English learners
and have real-time communication
Negative aspects
● You need to create a user account and build a profile.
● Content is too broad: too much information may be daunting.
● The site is not aimed at a specific age audience and it may therefore
be inappropriate for young learners.
● Anyone can post things so content may include some mistakes or
be inappropriate.
● Although there are privacy settings, students may be contacted by
strangers or unfriendly members.
Ideas to use my.englishclub.com in the
classroom
● Students could create a class group where they can post videos related to
the topics dealt in class. E.g.: If the unit is “animals” students can post
videos on their favourite animals and comment on each other’s posts.
● The teacher could choose a topic (e.g. routines) and ask students to post
humorous memes on that topic.
