60 Smarter Ways To Use Google Classroom - TeachThought

60 Smarter Ways To Use Google Classroom - TeachThought | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Google Classroom is quietly becoming the most powerful tool in education technology.

It may lack the visual appeal of iPads, or the student credibility of a BYOD program. It may not be as forward-thinking as we’d like here at TeachThought, but Google Classroom excels in providing solutions for a broad swath of teachers who have a variety of expertise and comfort level with education technology. It also uses Google’s familiar template that many teachers have used for years. As such, it scratches the itch for many teachers in many classrooms right here, right now.

So below are (at least) 60 thing you can do with Google Classroom. We’ll be updating this list as new ideas come in, the platform changes, and we learn more about its subtleties on our own.

Podcasting On A Budget: How To Record Great Audio For Less - ReadWrite.com

Podcasting On A Budget: How To Record Great Audio For Less - ReadWrite.com | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
So if you've ever wanted to reach a broad audience as a podcaster, there's no time like the present. These days, the difference in quality produced by professional set-ups—with layers of soundproofing and pricey microphones—don't sound all that different from recordings made on a smaller budget. 

But hardware and software alone don't make for polished audio. Having worked in studio settings ranging from small town radio stations, to control rooms of nationally syndicated radio shows, I can tell you that good technique is just as important. 

For the best recordings on a budget, check out this list of tips and tools for the budding podcaster.

How to backup your iPad to iCloud | iPad Insight

How to backup your iPad to iCloud | iPad Insight | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
When you finally decide to buy that sleek new iPad, one of the first tasks you are presented with is whether or not to turn on iCloud back-ups.  Whether you decide to turn them on when you first purchase your iPad or later on is up to you.  However, for demonstrative purposes, and because I bought and activated my iPad quite a while ago, I will quickly walk you through the set-up process from within the settings app.  One thing to note with iCloud backups is that with iOS 8 Apple moved the backups to a different location within the settings app.

7 Apps to Help Anyone Improve Their English Grammar | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
In a world of spellcheck and texting abbreviations, few people want to take the time to learn about subjects, objects, and dangling modifiers. Besides, computers can fix our sentences for us.

"Reading Teacher" Is A Good Site For Very Beginners - @LarryFerlazzo

"Reading Teacher" Is A Good Site For Very Beginners - @LarryFerlazzo | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Reading Teacher is a site that’s been around for awhile. There used to be a cost involved, but just last week they made it free-of-charge.

It has one or two hundred online books for very beginning readers — sort of an expanded version of Starfall. Many of the books have short quizzes after them.

Though it’s free to individual users, it does cost $20 if you want to create a virtual classroom of 29 students to track their progress.

I am using it, and will in the future, as another option for Beginning ELLs, particularly ones who have been out of school for a long time.
