Google Fights to Save 3,054 Languages

Google Fights to Save 3,054 Languages
Will you be any worse off the moment humans cease to speak in Aragonese? How about Navajo or Ojibwa? Or Koro, a language only just discovered in a tiny corner of northeast India?
If there is hope, it lies in the world’s centers of information — such as Google. The search giant’s philanthropic arm, Google.org, has launched the Endangered Language project, a website devoted to preserving those ancient tongues that are now only spoken by a few thousand of us.

Finding a cure for 'copy and paste'

Finding a cure for 'copy and paste'
It's not surprising that time-starved language students reach for the web to copy other people's work, but introducing more creative writing tasks can help them rely on their own skills and avoid the copy-and-paste function

MFL in Second Life (PowerPoint)
http://www.slideshare.net/sreljic/aect2007sreljic/
Online multiuser virtual environments such as Second Life offer a non-threatening space for learners to practice a foreign language or receive pre-departure information.
The simulated landscape provides an immersive experience that complements and facilitates the learning process.
Meeting language natives is one of the most important value-added offered by SL's 3D online format. Aspects of social presence are discussed. Implementation recommendations are suggested.
This ppt does not include the conference's audio explaining the slides.

VoiceThread
http://voicethread.com/
VoiceThread is a free tool (in beta) that enables members to upload images, record accompanying audio commentary, and invite others to add commentary.
VoiceThreads are hosted free of charge at VoiceThread.com and can be embedded in blogs, wikis, and other types of Web sites. A VoiceThread is quick and easy to create, has plenty of space for numerous images and commentaries, and can be accessed by any Internet-enabled computer.
A VoiceThread can also be used to create a video tutorial. You can use the pen tool to draw lines and arrows on an image in real time as you are speaking.
"There are plenty of exciting educational possibilities with VoiceThread, especially in the humanities, fine arts, and foreign languages. In humanities classrooms students can analyze and comment on historically significant photographs and create virtual tours of places or events they are studying. English students can record their own poetry or short story and add evocative images. Photography and Drawing students can present their work and explain their techniques and motivations; students and teachers can then leave commentaries. Foreign language students can upload pictures from a trip and then explain their voyage in the language they are studying." (Tom Daccord)

Learning languages online
http://www.freepint.com/issues/020206.htm#tips
Learning languages online
The Internet can offer you instant access to authentic written, spoken languages and even whole language courses, depending on your available time and interest. Whether you are a complete beginner with "learn Spanish" on your list of goals, or someone who learnt French at school and has become rusty, the Internet offers you possibilities to learn and improve your language skills.
It seems a good time to revisit some websites to see what they now offer, and to showcase some of the new sites that can help a language learner.
