Voicee is a form of instant messaging that uses voice instead of text. This is a really nice simple tool for asynchronous voice communications. Great for recording and sending audio drills to students or building up narrative line by line.

carldowse's curator insight, December 25, 2012 5:04 AM

A nice simple app for asynchronous speaking practice in the classroom and between lessons. Could be used for practising telephone call or meetings

10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart

10 Free Education Apps for iPad - Getting Smart | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

"One of the most popular categories of apps on any touch enabled mobile devices is obviously educational apps thanks to the real time, ready-in-hand help students get from them in and outside of their classroom. While there are millions of free educational apps, all of them are not worthy enough for downloading. Secondly, most of the top tier feature rich apps are either not free or offer a much downgraded ‘free’ version that offer a user experience far removed from what they provide in ‘paid’ version. So, finding a handful of free and useful education apps on diverse contents requires some amount of research and that is exactly what we help you to do here. Here below we are introducing 10 free education apps for iPad."

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Managing iPad Videos in Schools- Visual Guide for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

""Managing iPad YouTube in Schools" is a visual guide created by iPadWells 

from iPad4Schools.  

 

In this guide iPadWells walks teachers through the process they use in their school to create, share and teach using videos. YouTube is the principal video hosting used in this guide. That being said, it does not mean that the guide is not relevant for your teaching situation even if YuTube is banned in your school. You can still benefit from the tips and ideas provided by iPadWells on how to create enhanced videos using a wide variety of apps and share them with students who can access them at home."

That's thanks to the built-in slideshow feature, which ads movement and sound and special transition. If you'd like, you can even AirPlay them to an Apple TV for a family or group viewing experience.

Spell Up. Speak to play and build up your English. | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

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.

But as you can see there is a Twitter feed and FaceBook addition. A blog page has instructions on ideas you can use in class. QR code cubes for selecting a reflection topic, ipad uses, instagrams 10 feet long, jigsaw puzzle makers, and on and on…
