This is a great new game from Google which helps students develop their vocabulary through spelling and pronunciation. Using Chrome, students can actually speak to the computer and listen to the pronunciation of the words as they build a word tower. They can even listen to a speaking dictionary telling them what the words mean. This should get your students working autonomously to develop their own vocabulary and if they sign in they can track and share their results.

Lesson plans can play a vital role in simplifying a teacher’s job, and also can ensure that classes are conducted in a seamless and efficient manner.

 

A good lesson plan can be a great way for teachers to organize activities, highlight areas of focus, experiment with different ideas, and set goals for student achievement. With effective lesson planning, teachers can have a solid diagram to follow in order to stay organized and ensure student success.

ChristopherBell's curator insight, June 12, 5:30 PM

This is an ongoing discussion between my English Teacher friend and I.  I think the real question is why are we still teaching keyboarding??

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 12, 10:21 PM

It is becoming clearer that it is important that we do not lose  handwriting as a skill! Strong positive neural development in a child is far more important than adeptness in using digital technologies. If research continues to support these initial studies many educators will need to reflect and possibly readjust.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 11:57 AM

New evidence suggests that the links between handwriting and broader educational development run deep. Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information. In other words, it’s not just what we write that matters — but how.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, March 29, 2:07 AM

I love the 92% of companies who blog multiple times a day have acquired a customer from their blog stat. You might wonder how that could work. How can a company blog multiple times a day?

Shorten up your blog posts and widen your content curation and creation path and creating multiple post a day is possible. Each post has a unique URL so they shouldn't step on each other too badly (and that is another good reason to create a wide swath of content).

Brain Pickings is a great example of the power of intense blogging for long periods. Maria Popova's blog has almost 11,000 pages in Google, a PageRank of 7 and almost 11,000 inbound links. Smart content distributed across a wide swath with multiple posts a day can create a powerful SEO position.

My blog writing tips:

* Write in present tense verbs (sounds FAST).
* Short sentences without connections (and, but, so hurt more than they help online).

* Bullet points are good, great visual support is better.
* Match written content to visual support.

* Avoid "stop words" like "him, her, it, they".

* Be specific (use keywords whenever possible).
* Don't sweat grammar but watch the spelling.

Dictation - Online Speech Recognition | Mobile Learning | 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.
