Kalinago English: 10 Speaking English Activities using TED.com

I love TEDtalks, but I haven't used them in class (although I have worked online discussion tasks around a few).

  • In Kalinago English: 10 Speaking English Activities using TED.com: the blogger addresses the EFL teacher 'knee-jerk' reaction to think that before using a video in class one has to spend hours developing pre-, while- and post-video worksheets. 
  •  Granted, you don't want to just turn on a YouTube video and slip out for a quick cup of coffee, but the ideas in this blog post are very practical and present the essences of teaching, which is to engage students in the learning process.
