Playfic: Play Me a Story

Playfic: Play Me a Story | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Playfic is a very original website where users (ESL Students!) can "play a story". Start any of the stories in the website, and decide which way it will go by writing the right word. Once you write the correct words, that opens into a new section of the story. Highly engaging once readers/writers have got used to the way it works. Once they are used to it, they can even create their own... writing, reading skills and creativity at their best!!

HelloSlide - Bring your slides to life | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

a tool that you can use to add voice narration to slides that you display online. instead of recording your voice you type what you want the narrator to say. Where you might type "speakers notes" in other slide programs, in Hello Slide you type out the narration. Hello Slide creates the audio and narrates your slides for you. While the voice is slightly robotic, it is much much better than most text to speech services.
