Yes but it's really possible and fascinating indeed.

I believe that we can think using kind of emotions and visualizations. Maybe it is a universal communication like we can have in dreams

Mix Images and Animation on Your Mobile

Mix Images and Animation on Your Mobile | autismhorsha | Scoop.it

The app runs on a mobile device and allows users to add animated speaking characters to a selection of backgrounds or to the users' own images. You can then either use text to speech to write a script for the character, or you can record your own voice and the app will lip-synch you text to the character. This is very quick and easy to do. Here's how.

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | autismhorsha | Scoop.it

 

"I love it when I come across such educators curated lists of apps because I know since these apps are reviewed by fellow teachers then there is a high possibility that they will work for other teachers in different settings too.

For instance, the wonderful work embedded below and which has been created by the folks in St.Plunkett Oliver Primary School http://www.stoliverplunkett.qld.edu.au/Pages/default.aspx ; is a great library of apps that every teacher should have the chance to explore. It contains a set of useful apps pertaining to different categories. Most, if not all of these apps, have been already reviewed here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning before but it is much more practical to see them  compiled and organized all in one page."

* Popplet + Common Core Mastery - Have students write a script that address content and Common Core standards

* ThingLink Mobile - Take an image and tag it with video and text and share

It is more fun to learn creating you own story. The word story makes it sound like a fantasy tale, but it could be steps in a process, a summary of what you have learned in class, or a biography

The 21st century skill students really lack. | autismhorsha | Scoop.it

Most teachers t think that students today have a problem paying attention. They seem impatient, easily bored.

I’ve argued that I think it’s unlikely that they are incapable of paying attention, but rather that they are quick to deem things not worth the effort.
