Free Online Grammar Check, Spelling, and More | PaperRater | Curating the mind through educational technology! | Scoop.it
Grammar & Spelling Check; Free Online Proofreading; No Downloads...Allows you to find those pesky mistakes and correct them before your teacher does...

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

I checked this out for something I had just written. It is way, way better than the checker built into Microsoft Word. PaperRater offers not only spelling and grammar check, but also plagiarism detection, and suggestions for improving writing. The service is free and fast. I plan to use it for myself as well as recommending it to colleagues and students.

Tracey McGrath's insight:

I am looking forward to sharing this with my colleagues and students who are seeking ways to improve students writing. This looks like a great app to provide students with an unbiased constructive critism, which they can use to improve their strategies to become better writers.

15 iPad Apps to Enhance Students Creativity ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

15 iPad Apps to Enhance Students Creativity ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Curating the mind through educational technology! | Scoop.it

"I am revisiting this topic of enhancing students creativity using iPad apps for the second time this year. Almost 10 months ago I featured here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a selection of some great apps http://bit.ly/185Tusc that can be used in class to boost students creative thinking; and today and after having reviewed hundred of new educational apps since that post, I decided to compile an updated version of that list and include some newly featured apps in the category of creativity.

Of course by creativity I mean giving students the chance to take their learning to the next step, one in which they are active producers and participators in knowledge building. Creativity is all about creation and iPad is an ideal device to support this creative thinking. Check out the apps I have handpicked for you today and share with us if you have other suggestions :"

Great apps that students could also use to assist in building their portfolios by thinking in a more creative way and using technology to support it.
