TuneIn

Principal function(s): Streaming/radio services

A radio aggregator with radio stations from across the world. One can listen to native-spoken news, podcasts or music. No need to register. One does only have to go to their website or install their apps and search for radio stations in the language of interest. It’s available on both Android and iOS, as well as on computers. Evaluation: The app breaks down the topics into categories so you can choose to listen to news, music, entertainment, etc. There's a free version and a paid version, which offers a few perks such as the ability to record the radio streaming for later. It provides a great way to access authentic audio input.

Cost: Free without registration + paid premium plans

TaskCards (Virtual pinboard for content creation/sharing and for collaborative working)

TaskCards is a GDPR-compliant digital platform which was specifically created for educational purposes. It helps create and manage virtual pinboards, i.e. canvases where content can be uploaded and shared. Users can create and customise their pinboards by attaching text, images, videos, links and files, together with changing their background and much more. The privacy settings of these pinboards - or parts of a pinboard - can later be modified. TaskCards offers a free limited version that allows users to have up to 2 pin boards. While teachers have to register to create pinboards, learners can access them directly via link or QR code. TaskCards is developed by the German firm dSign Systems GmbH.... View details
