Just wanted to share a success story using QR codes in my adult ESL language classroom. I was skeptical about the how/why/where/when of using QR codes in ESL, but after reading several articles decided to give it a try. Essentially, I converted a reading comprehension (match the headings with the description activity) to a QR activity that used reading, listening and speaking skills. With the exception of two older students who went into a sort of digital meltdown, the activity was well received and the students gave me very positive feedback, mostly in terms of impact and motivation. It was a way to work on digital competence as well, bring in some TICs and "shake things up" a bit. My first stab at it was successful and from what I learned on how to improve it, I will definitely repeat QR codes in class.

I'd like to start a correspondence between my students in 8th grade (13-14 years old) and a class from a different country, so that they can practise their English. We are from Italy and we could also help students who are studying Italian as a foreign language.
I would like them to use Padlet or we could set up a group on Edmodo and create sugbroups so we can monitor what they write and have a protected environment. Anyone interested? My email is email@example.com.

Can someone recommend a good Conversational English book. I am using Pronunciation Pairs by Ann Baker and Sharon Goldstein, it's very good but I would like to research other books as well.
Thanks and God Bless

Hi my dear fellow teachers,
I need some help. Could you please give me some ideas to boost SPEAKING in big classrooms at a secondary school?
Thanks a lot

This is our new Android app that works with our learning content, just £1. It has a unique little twist to voice recording...you can schedule three replays of each file so that you can hear yourself speaking a few times. The reason we did this is so that learners brains get enough of the personalised information about their speaking performances that help them to improve fast. If you give it a go let us know what you think :-)

Hi folks, how's it going? We''re a small publisher who constantly innovate. We have been working on our new face-to-face English speaking course product and Android app. We've taken our gaze away from Edmodo for a while so it would be great if any of you could let us know how it is going and you think there is anything we should know? We are thinking on putting some lesson plans/worksheets on Edmodo Spotlight...has anyone got any feedback for us? All the best, Jason
