Easily Create A Musical Playlist With Choruzz

Choruzz lets you — without needing to register — search for music videos and create a playlist of them. You’re then given a unique url address for your list that you can share.

It’s very easy to use, and it meets my “Raffi” test — in other words, plenty of songs are accessible that you can use with English Language Learners.

I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Music Sites.


This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”

I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.

Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:

10 awesome apps for iPhoneography is from Matador. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Beginning iPhone Users Like Me.

GE Teach looks like a great tool for teachers using Google Earth. You can read more about it at Richard Byrne’s blog. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Google Earth Beginners Like Me.

IPads In The Classroom comes from Ed Tech Teacher. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning iPad Users.

The Very First App You Should Load on Your New iPad is from Jeffrey Thomas. I’m adding it to that list, too.

And if you’re considering using iPads in the classroom, Redefining Instruction With Technology: Five Essential Steps by Jennie Magiera is a must read. That’s going on the the same list.

States Anticipate Technology Challenges With Common Tests is from Ed Week. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The “Next Generation” Of State Testing.

An animated journey through the Earth’s climate history is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Climate Change.

NASA Visualization Shows Global Temperature Changes (VIDEO) is from The Huffington Post. I’m adding it to the same list.

Around The Web In ESL/EFL/ELL

I’ve recently started a regular feature where I share a few posts from around the Web related to ESL or EFL that have caught my attention:

On Teaching Effective Learning is from Teacher 2 Teacher, and shares some good ideas for student reflection.

Smile is a nice lesson plan, including materials, and is from Film English.

How to make things fall apart – A behaviour model for creating incompetence is an excellent post by Maria Constantinides.

Beating the Humdrum is from Language Moments, and has some excellent ideas on how to “liven-up” a less than interesting textbook. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Adapting Your Textbook So It Doesn’t Bore Students To Death.
