How to Inspire Your Students to Read this Summer

How to Inspire Your Students to Read this Summer | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Some teachers like to get back all their classroom library books before the school year ends. I was not that teacher. Check ‘em out, read ‘em, and share ‘em. That's a good reflection on Summer reading for our students. We must make sure we provide students with the best tips to foster reading during Summer holidays, a gap to be filled with rich food for our soul as well... books!!

Ever play 11th hour or Myst? This reminds me of that.. interesting to see it catching on outside of a PC. Is this sort of technological story-telling something invented or is it remembering things forgotten?

Amara is a free web-based service that allows anyone to easily sub-title and add captions to any video. 

 

As long as you have a URL of a published video, Amara makes it very easy to caption it. The clip may be on a video sharing site or embedded in custom video player and Amara can still get to it.

 

Amara is made up of three main parts:

 

a) A subtitle creation and viewing tool (aka the widget)


b) A collaborative subtitling website

 

c) An open protocol for subtitle search/delivery

 

All tools inside Amara are free and open-source.
