TitanPad

TitanPad lets people work on one document simultaneously


Via Anthony Beal, Juergen Wagner
sarspri's insight:

The "no account sign-up needed" element is a key distinguishing factor for TitanPad.  Plus the playback feature, which is great for watching a (double or triple time) digital record of a learner's writing process unfold after the fact.  The latter distinguishes it from Google Docs for particular types of tasks.

 

This is a solid version of what used to be EtherPad.

Apptivities for Business English | The Round | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "This eBook looks at apps for business English students. First, it introduces important distinctions (native vs web-based; free vs pay for; apps for different operating systems). Then, it presents a selected number of apps chosen by the authors in the following categories: language skills (speaking / writing / listening / reading); language (grammar / vocabulary / pronunciation) and finally, business.

 

Each app is described briefly; then, ideas for using the app in the classroom with students are provided, followed by ideas for students to use the app autonomously, using their smartphone and / or tablet."

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley || new Google Lit Trip | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"About the Project: Frankenstein is a great novel, but it is difficult novel in many ways. The first challenge is helping students unlearn what they know about the story. I do this by simply asking my students to identify the "Frankenstein" in Frankenstein. Most students will answer that the name refers to the monster--the tall guy with green paint and bolts on the side of his head. Actually, the name refers to Victor Frankenstein, the creator of the monster or "creature" as he is often called.

 

I then ask students to tell me what they know of the search for the Northwest Passage. Again, this is a topic that few students know about. Neither did I, in fact, when I first read the novel.

 

After a few articles, illustrations, and maps about this topic, I do not begin Frankenstein, but instead have students read an abridged version of ..."
