History Engine: Tools for Collaborative Education and Research | Home | Going Digital | Scoop.it

The History Engine is an educational tool that gives students the opportunity to learn history by doing the work—researching, writing, and publishing—of a historian. The result is an ever-growing collection of historical articles or "episodes" that paints a wide-ranging portrait of life in the United States throughout its history and that is available to scholars, teachers, and the general public.

Sarah McElrath's insight:

Great way to make research relevant.

WordSift - Visualize Text

visualize texts.
Sarah McElrath's insight:

This is an interesting one. I could see it used for ELL as well as for all of the subject areas when introducing informational text. Teachers would know which vocabulary to focus on with students. Students could use this to analyze a piece of writing as well.

Paste in your text and hit the Sift button. The results can be analyzed in many different ways--including visually as a word cloud.

Dictation - Online Speech Recognition

Dictation - Online Speech Recognition | Going Digital | Scoop.it
Dictation is a free online speech recognition software powered by Google Chrome. You can use Dictation to write emails and documents in the browser with your voice

 

"Speech Recognition in the Browser

With Dictation, you can use the magic of speech recognition to write emails, narrate essays and long documents in the browser without touching the keyboard.

To get started, just connect the microphone to your computer and click the Start Dictation button.

Dictation uses your browser's local Storage to save all the transcribed text automatically as you speak. That means you can close the browser and it will resume from where you left off.

The app internally uses the built-in speech recognition engine of Google Chrome to transform your voice into digital text.

Speak in your Native Language

You don't have to speak in English as Chrome's engine can recognize quite a few languages including Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Malay, Indonesian and more. Dictation will automatically determine your browser's default launguage and uses it for subsequent transcriptions.

Hindi and other Indian languages aren't supported at this time.

Written by Amit Agarwal for Digital Inspiration."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This app works very well. It's not quite up to the standards of Dragon Naturally Speaking, but then again, it is free.

Seems to work OK - talk to you computer and watch the words appear on the screen.  And when it's wrong, it's easy to edit manually.  Pedagogical applications, anyone?

Luz Marina Martínez Peña's curator insight, March 31, 5:27 PM

Esta herramienta es muy útil, cuando se está escribiendo un texto científico, pues nos permite ir desarrollando una idea de manera muy rápida, sin preocuparnos por tener que escribir.
