Creating Something Great

During these interesting times, we find ourselves building something new and exciting through the amazing efforts and huge patience of a wonderful group of presenters and sponsors including our keynote speaker, Dr. Charles Browne. More than ever this is a conference that aims to bring us together and showcases the role that technology can play in this endeavor. The role of technology in the classroom suddenly finds itself in the spotlight and we look forward to seeing you all on June 6th and 7th.

Utilizing Corpus-based Wordlists with Free Online Resources: A Modular Approach #83

Finished
Sat, Jun 6, 13:00-14:10 JST

This presentation will briefly introduce 7 open-source, corpus-derived high frequency vocabulary word lists that the presenter helped to create for second language learners of English, and then move on to introduce and demonstrate a large and growing number of free, pedagogically-driven online tools apps and resources for helping to utilize these lists for teaching, learning, assessment, materials creation as well as research and analysis. The tools include interactive flashcards, diagnostic tests, games, vocabulary profiling apps, text creation tools, and more. Each word list offers extremely high coverage (92% or higher) of language in that genre and includes lists for general daily English (New General Service List or NGSL), spoken English (New General Service List-Spoken or NGSL-S), academic English (New Academic Word List or NAWL), business English (Business Service List or BSL), TOEIC English (TOEIC Service List or TSL), children’s English (New Dolch List or NDL) and fitness English (Fitness English List or FEL). Most lists were developed in a modular approach so they can be efficiently mixed and matched to meet a broad range of academic needs.
