Some excellent English usage, and other Infographics from huntingenglish

Alex Quigley, (I identified Alex from his twitter handle, @HuntingEnglish ) writes on his blog of the same name:

I have to say I am mildly addicted to finding these great infographics. They are an excellent way of presenting a vast amount of information in a lively, visually interesting way. I am set on finding the best of them and when I get some time in the summer actually creating my own!

Alex certainly has found some very informative and useful infographics, which you might be able to put to good use in your teaching and learning programs.

Using TED to Teach Presentation Skills – Kate Petty

http://thetechclassroom.com/using-ted-to-develop-presentation-skills/

On her blog ‘The Tech Classroom – 21st Century English Classroom’ Kate Petty writes:

What is TED? TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) is a non-profit organization devoted to sharing “Ideas Worth Spreading.” The first TED conference was in Monterrey, CA in 1984 and the ideas have not stopped flowing.
Why is TED so popular? Many educators and professionals find the 3-20 minute speeches authentic and high-interest with diverse speakers who have various presentation styles.
What can TED do for your classroom? TED speeches are available through its website on Ted.com, YouTube, and an app for all devices, including iOS. Teachers can use TED to teach and develop dynamic presentation skills using the videos it offers.

Kate offers some resources there also and some suggestions for speeches if TED access is not available at your school.
