Abby Fellows - Smith's curator insight, October 3, 2013 7:05 AM

I loved this article. It broke down ten ways in which iPads are productive in aiding children how to learn. The aid of pictures with headlines and quotes made it enjoyable to read. Instead of one long story it was broken down nicely so that it is easy to retain the information that you read. I particularly enjoyed the insight into the "the risk - taker" aspect of using the iPad. It is great to know that technology is aiding in the education of future generations

Sarah-Jane Davies's insight:

The introduction of iPads into the classroom is a very controversial topic. Many people believe that it is not suitable for school children. For example, people say that children lose their ability to write since they are no longer using pens or paper. However, this article fives many examples of why it is actually a positive thing. The article is fun to read since it is written in a concise list and contains interesting cartoon pictures at each point. Each point is also extended by reasons and examples of why the specific point is positive.  The viewpoint is legitimate since it is coming from a teacher. The teacher has a good perspective since he deals with children every day.

OCR to Text to Speech ~ Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org:

OCR to Text to Speech ~ Around the Corner-MGuhlin.org: | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

by Miguel Guhlin


"I'd like to find a way to scan text, then have that text read to the student." Isn't it great to have these kinds of questions that just wander in?

"While there are a variety of computer programs available for optical character recognition (OCR), I had only encountered this on the PaperPort Notes app. That process, while fine for me, wouldn't work well for the intended use.


"Voxdox is a new free text-to-speech app, available now foriphone, android and tablet that will read out any form of text for you in your choice of human voice. 


"With Voxdox you can convert files, papers, articles, contracts and even full-length books to quality speech in over 20 languages, and then share them with your friends, class-mates and colleagues using Voxbox, the app’s integrated social database. 


"Voxbox has already become the first choice solution for thousands of people around the world for sharing information in the fields of business and academia. By using Voxbox, your networks can find you in seconds and download high quality audio files generated from your text as well as the text itself. After downloading the text they have chosen, all that is left to do is press "play" and it will be read to them in one of a range of human voices."


Jim Lerman's insight:


This is fantastic! You can have your computer read back to you, out loud, any printed document -- even a pdf. For free! Outstanding.

Sounds like a great way to have someone else read journal articles or other text based information to you while you drive or walk. Could see usefulness for both faculty and students.

How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10

14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad | educational technology for teachers

14 Ways To Store And Share Files On The iPad | educational technology for teachers | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

iPads are neat little devices that can pretty much do it all: play music, support interactive content, reshape how we think of textbooks, produce high-quality videos, and even take a step back and function as a good old-fashioned typewriter.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I have a first edition iPad.  It took me awhile to realize that the only way I could get a file onto the iPad was to get the original file into the cloud from another computer. I wish I had read this article when I first got my machine!
