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

25 of the Best Educational Games For Home and the Classroom

25 of the Best Educational Games For Home and the Classroom | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Among the many ways to actively engage children in the learning process, educational games are one of the most fun. With so many award winning and cleverly designed games on the market, young children to teens (and even adults!) can develop new skills and reinforce other skills, without even realizing they are learning.

Board, card, cooperative, puzzle games, and more encourage interactive hands-on learning in a humorous, light hearted environment. In a addition to math, reading, vocabulary, logic, problem-solving, and spelling skills regularly introduced by educational games, turn based and cooperative games foster with social interaction, communication skills, and self confidence.

Consider adding one of these excellent educational games to your home or classroom collection.

We Are All Teachers Of Literacy

We Are All Teachers Of Literacy | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

Literacy today is taking on a whole new meaning and many years from now it will mean something entirely different. Therefore, we have to look at literacy through a new lens and expand on our definition of what makes kids and all of us literate and examine how technology supports our ability to do so.

How to create a poll in PowerPoint

How to create a poll in PowerPoint | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
A really cool way to engage an audience is using live polls in your PowerPoint presentations.

What’s great about this is if you ask the audience a question, instead of having them shout out their answers or writing their responses on a flip chart, you can have them respond on their mobile devices so you can see the results appear in real time on the slide. This can work with all types of questions – from multiple choice, to free response, to (my favorite) word clouds.

Watch the video below or scroll down the page to see how to get started with live polling in PowerPoint today.

A New Infographic on Project-based Learning for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it



"According to BIE, project based learning is “an instructional approach built upon authentic learning activities that engage student interest and motivation. These activities are designed to answer a question or solve a problem and generally reflect the types of learning and work people do in the everyday world outside the classroom.”In its essence , project based learning is all about engaging learners in meaningful and goal-oriented learning activities.Technology is proved to be an effective means of creating and enhancing a PBL-based culture in and outside class. Today we are sharing with you this handy infographic we created based on a previous post we published here a few months ago. The visual features a number of educational mobile apps and web tools to help teachers integrate the ethos of PBL in their instruction. Check it out and share with your colleagues. Enjoy"

Books Teachers Share: Inspired to Join the Doodle Revolution

Books Teachers Share: Inspired to Join the Doodle Revolution | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Literacy specialist Shawna Coppola teaches at a small elementary school in Rollinsford, New Hampshire, where she focuses on universal instruction and supporting teachers, often stepping in to help plan a lesson or co-teach a unit. She said that an unlikely book has profoundly changed how she thinks about teaching reading and writing: Sunni Brown’s The Doodle Revolution: Unlock the Power to Think Differently.

Coppola, who was never much of a doodler herself, said when she first started teaching 16 years ago, she often told students to stop drawing all over their papers and pay attention. But what she learned from The Doodle Revolution is that there is research to support the idea that doodling is actually not stealing focus, but helping to increase focus by helping the doodler think deeply about what is being said.

And more than that, Coppola said, it’s fun.
