At the risk of sounding like an “old fogey,” I’m regularly astounded by the high volumes many young people set the music they are listening to on their phones, and I’ve previously shared related info at The Best Resources On Teens & Hearing Loss.

Nominees for the twentieth annual were announced this morning (go here and click on “view all categories to see them). I think you have to kiss a lot of pigs before you find the princes, but there are a few excellent learning resources there that I haven’t already shared.
Google Feud and PhotoBomber would be fun games to play with English Language Learners. In the first one, which is a Webby nominee, you’re given a phrase and have to guess the ten most likely words to complete it in a Google search. The downside, however, is that it’s possible you might end up with something inappropriate. The second one is a sister site, though did not actually receive a nomination. It would work for advanced ELLs – you’re given a combination of pictures and words and have to guess the common expression it represents.
Apollo 17 is a multimedia interactive letting you experience – in real time – that moon-landing mission.
