11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad | Academic Writing in ESL | Scoop.it

Mind mapping is a method that works for quite a lot of people. Brain storming, idea mapping, thought generation, think tanks – call it what you will. Traditionally done on large pieces of paper, why not use your iPad to create mind maps? You could use these for your own purposes, or “convert” those large flip charts into a smaller, digital version.

Adobe Voice: A Powerful Storytelling App - Class Tech Tips

Adobe Voice: A Powerful Storytelling App - Class Tech Tips | Academic Writing in ESL | Scoop.it

#"Storytelling is a powerful way to inspire students, build community and give children a voice.  There are a few great apps that help students of all ages write and tell their own stories (Shadow Puppet, Toontastic) and a new app that I absolutely love is Adobe Voice.  This free iPad app is very user friendly and makes the storytelling process simple for children young and old.  Kids can add pictures, text, and even choose from different icons to bring their stories to life.  Adobe Voice has an easy recording feature for students to add their voice as narration.  There is a music library and a selection of themes for users to pick out and include in their final product."

How to use Voice Dictation on Your iPad and iPhone - teachingwithipad.org

How to use Voice Dictation on Your iPad and iPhone - teachingwithipad.org | Academic Writing in ESL | Scoop.it

"Do you see that microphone button at the bottom left of the iPad screen when the keyboard appears? I always knew about the dictation feature, but I never really used it before a couple weeks ago. I’m actually writing this post by speaking it, all while in the car! The accuracy is quite good, there are rarely any mistakes if you speak clearly.

 

I’ve been using it recently for a lot of things: text messages, emails, and blogging."

発話をそのままブログにできるわけですね。うーん、まずはiPadがほしい。

 

Andy Kenworthy's curator insight, January 6, 5:11 AM

Voice dictation works well if you speak slowly and clearly in short bursts and still quicker than typing. You can even speak the punctuation you require. Accuracy is very good though still good to proof read it just in case before submitting anything.

6 Steps to Add Voice Comments to Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

6 Steps to Add Voice Comments to Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Academic Writing in ESL | Scoop.it

"With this new application in Google Docs ( Drive ), teachers can now record their audio comments and share them with their students. I see this as a better way to give feedback on students' work and I do believe there are things we can express with our voice that no written code could ever capture like the tone and intonation..etc."

Becky Roehrs's curator insight, May 20, 2013 1:17 PM

Update/Tip: I tried it out-if you have to change your original document-just copy it and add voice to it-121 Writing doesn't sync with your Google Docs updates.

 

Instructors are always looking for ways to add audio feedback-I'd much prefer adding voice messages to my student's Google Docs then just text like I have in the past.

Anne Macdonell's curator insight, May 22, 2013 10:43 AM
