VoiceNote: Another Excellent Voice-to-Text App for Google Chrome | Free Resources from the Net for EVERY Learner

VoiceNote: Another Excellent Voice-to-Text App for Google Chrome | Free Resources from the Net for EVERY Learner | Could be useful | Scoop.it
Alistair Parker's insight:

I’ve explored numerous options for voice recognition, some free and others quite expensive. I’ve tried these applications myself, and I’ve used them with learners ranging in age from 8 to 68.  In my experience, the free voice-to-text options available in the Google Chrome web browser are more effective than any of the others, especially for children. There are several Chrome alternatives, and I’ve already written here about Speech Recognizer, Online Dictation, and TalkTyper. Thanks to a helpful tip from Thomas Keown, I’m sharing yet another powerful option here.

Radical rethink: how to design university courses in the online age

Radical rethink: how to design university courses in the online age | Could be useful | Scoop.it

Un interesante artículo de Paul Wappett sobre EL FUTURO DE LA EDUCACIÓN, enfocado a cómo deben ser los cursos.

Modelos con conferencias on line del experto, de unos 10 minutos y que finalizan con una prueba corta.

Esto permitirá:
- asegurarse de qe los conceptos se van entendiendo
- personalizar el aprendizaje, el alumno accederá a aquello que necesite y podrá navegar libremente
- analíticas del aprendizaje
- atender diferentes estilos de aprender de diferentes alumnos

El reto será que los docentes investiguen y trabajen en diseñar contenidos de calidad.

These technology tools are awesome! Clearly, this is not economically feasible for every student with ADHD, but maybe one day it will be! I wish I had the smartpen in high school to record lectures and presentations!
