Andy Kenworthy's insight:

I use Reflector and find it works very well streaming to my Mac but can lag quite a bit on my windows laptop. Screencast records also don't capture sound so the audio needs to be added later or recorded in QuickTime or similar app.

"The power of Twitter resides in the kind of connections and networks it allows you to make.Twitter is by far the social networking platform that teachers and educators populate the most. As such, creating a personal/professional learning network comprising kindred others is as easy as participating in the weekly educational chats organized on Twitter (#edchat as an example). These meet-ups enable you  to meet and connect with teachers from all around the globe. They also introduce you to a treasure trove of information, resources, links, tips, and learning experiences that can be leveraged for your own purposes."

Quick Tip: 5 Ways to Enhance the Way You Use Dictation - Tuts+ Computer Skills Tutorial

Quick Tip: 5 Ways to Enhance the Way You Use Dictation - Tuts+ Computer Skills Tutorial | E-learning | Scoop.it
When Siri Dictation arrived on iOS, consumers were excited to finally have an alternative to typing text messages and emails. Since its initial release in October 2011, the feature has improved significantly in its ability to accurately interpret what you’re saying. With the release of Mountain Lion last year, Apple added Dictation to its desktop operating system to lessen the need for typing OS-wide. Most people don’t know about the feature, though, and those who do neglect to use it. In this tutorial I will list a few ways you can make Dictation a true “intelligent assistant”. | Difficulty: Beginner; Length: Quick; Tags: OS X, Dictation, Tips & Shortcuts

An Overview of iOS 8′s New Accessibility Features - MacStories

An Overview of iOS 8′s New Accessibility Features - MacStories | E-learning | Scoop.it

Since this year’s WWDC keynote ended, the focus of any analysis on iOS 8 has been its features — things like Continuity, Extensions, and iCloud Drive. This is, of course, expected: iOS is the operating system that drives Apple’s most important (and most profitable) products, so it’s natural that the limelight be shone on the new features for the mass market.

 

As I’ve written, however, the Accessibility features that Apple includes in iOS are nonetheless just as important and innovative as the A-list features that Craig Federighi demoed on stage at Moscone. Indeed, Apple is to be lauded for their year-over-year commitment to improving iOS’s Accessibility feature set, and they continue that trend with iOS 8.

 

Here, I run down what’s new in Accessibility in iOS 8, and explain briefly how each feature works.
