Video Boosters represent a major breakthrough in how to learn English. These self-contained exercises are based on video clips. They enable you to practice a range of language skills across six contextual exercises. Each Video Booster takes about 10 minutes to complete: an ideal timespan for sustained concentration. There are over 1,000 video exercises, with more added each day based on the latest movies, TV series, music and current events.
Our catalog of Photo Vocabs is the most comprehensive collection of visual dictionaries for learning English. Each Photo Vocab is based on a subject or theme, and contains about 20 vocabulary items illustrated with photos. Each word or expression includes a definition, a word-for-word translation, a sample sentence in which it is used, and pronunciation playback. Once you’ve experienced the new vocabulary, memorize the words and expressions with Practice Games accessible directly from within the Photo Vocab.
To retain a new word or expression in English over time, it needs to be seen and used at least seven times, ideally in different contexts. Repeat exposure and use in games is an ideal way to consolidate new language items without it seeming like hard work. Our range of language games allows you to review vocabulary items seen in a Video Booster or Photo Vocab; to practice your irregular verbs; or to fine-tune your oral comprehension. From spelling-based games to video karaoke, the diversity of available gameplay styles means you’ll never be bored. Practice through play: it’s fun (and effective) with English Attack!

I really believe that the English Attack! 2.0 Online English learning platform would be an excellent choice for this initiative. English Attack! is a totally new approach to learning English, developed by media and videogaming experts in collaboration with researchers in cognitive neuroscience. Our innovative learning method combines videos, photos, games and social networking for a daily English workout. It’s fun and effective. Once you try it, you won’t want to learn any other way.
You can use English Attack! learning units - video exercises, visual dictionaries and practice games - with your learners both in the classroom as well as for out-of-class learning. The wide range of content categories and difficulty levels available on English Attack! makes it an ideal complementary English learning resource for students in Middle School through to secondary and university-level education, as well as for those enrolled in language institutes. A deep and constantly expanding catalog of contextual exercises allows the learner to evolve English language proficiency over the course of his or her education. The format and currency of the units (clips from films, news, music, etc) generates enthusiasm and motivation. English Attack! for Education consists of a Teachers and Schools Platform and special Education price plans. English Attack! is currently being used in schools, universities and language institutes throughout the world. Your learners can prepare for your lessons with a Video Booster (video exercise) related to the theme or subject you would like to cover. You can also ask them to review a Photo Vocab (visual dictionary) containing key vocabulary they will need for the lesson.
You’ll find your learners keener and more familiar with your planned lesson’s theme and vocabulary if they have warmed up for it with the appropriate English Attack! learning units. Using interactive multimedia resources in class is a great way to capture the attention of your learners. If your classroom is equipped with a video projector or an interactive whiteboard, you can achieve a high degree of learner participation by going over a Video Booster with them directly in class. You also have the option of playing the video part of the exercise in full-screen mode and coming back to the exercise format later. Photo Vocabs are perfect for class work on specific vocabulary or content themes. Going through the Photo Vocab with your learners as a group can be a nice lead-in to a class discussion on the topic of that visual dictionary. At the end of your lesson, ask your learners to consolidate the new language items they’ve seen in class by playing some Practice Games at home. English Attack! Practice Games allow for contextual revision of language items seen in Photo Vocabs and Video Boosters, and as such are highly effective for locking in recently learned content. While not at all feeling like “homework,” these games use contextualization, repetition, and image/text association to enable learners to move language items from short-term to long-term memory. Your Teacher Account not only gives you unlimited access to all English Attack! learning units; it also comes with a set of Teacher Tools that enable you to manage your learners’ work on English Attack! Thanks to your unique Invitation Code, your learners can easily connect with you as a Teacher on English Attack!. You can create as many online classes as you like, and easily assign each of your learners to one or more classes. A simple click of a button on each learning unit (Video Boosters and Photo Vocabs) allows you to flag that unit as an assignment for one or several of the classes you’ve created. Each of your learners will have a “My School” page on the site where they can see and complete the units you’ve assigned to them. You can also use the Messaging functions to communicate with each class as a whole or with individual learners. An Activity dashboard allows you to monitor a learner’s frequency of site use; his or her assignment compliance, and the score obtained for each assigned learning unit.

Chulalongkorn University & other universities using computer program to catch students who dishonestly copy the words and ideas of others in their thesis pretending they are their own work.

Chulalongkorn University software detects plagiarism
26/06/2014 Thitirat Muangsiri
Chulalongkorn University along with 17 other universities and institutions has agreed to adopt the new Akarawisut computer program to detect plagiarism in theses submitted by university students.
The universities signed the academic collaboration agreement to use the Akarawisut (clean text) program to maintain the quality of students’ theses, said Pirom Kamolratanakul, president of Chulalongkorn University.
Prof Pirom said Chulalongkorn University had been focusing on trying to solve the problem of plagiarism and hadlaunched several measures to detect it.
These measures were developed into text analysis software such as Akarawisut and Turnitin.
The programs had been applied to more than 1,000 theses in 2013. To extend the plagiarism detection policy, Chulalongkorn University allowed other educational institutions to use the Akarawisut program free of charge under the agreement.
The universities and institutions include the National Institute for Development Administration (NIDA), Mae Fah Luang University, University of Phayao, Burapha University and Thaksin University.
The collaboration led to an increase in quality standards among post-graduate theses and helped encourage Thai students to be honest in their work, he said.
Amorn Petsom, president of Chulalongkorn University graduate school, said the agreement was the first step to create connections among institutes to detect thesis plagiarism and prevent students from committing it.
“We believe human resources are the best foundation for developing the country. This is why Chulalongkorn University aims to create good-quality graduates and staff,” he said.
"Technology makes it easy to plagiarise these days, but this program will help prevent it. The collaboration with other universities is important.”
This case study is very well prepared and I personally like to say thank you to Professor Jyrki Loima and Ajarn Jutarat Vibulphol for taking the time to conduct this case study and sharing the results in a post (link above).
Next I would like to say that with my 13-years experience having taught more than 6,500 people English in Thailand in ages 4-60 years old but most were secondary students (teenagers M/1-M/6 = 7th graders-12th graders) that I fully agree with these results.
How can we get the parents, students, teachers and schools to come together and examine what are the realistic and practical ways to change this negative trend and make it positive for all students?
