Free Technology for Teachers: How to Add Voice Comments to Google Documents

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Add Voice Comments to Google Documents | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

By Richard Byrne

 

"The sharing and commenting features in Google Documents are fantastic for giving students feedback about their work. Likewise, those features are great for students to use for peer editing. But if you want to really add your voice to then you'll want to add the Voice Comments application from Learn.ly to your Google Drive account. Thanks to a Tweet from Alec Couros I learned about a Google Documents voice comment tutorial produced by Jennifer Roberts. Her video tutorial is embedded below."

One iPad Classroom - A Crowdsourced Reference - READ WRITE RESPOND | Technology in Today's Classroom | Scoop.it

"Although some schools are going one-to-one iPads, there is a growing trend of teachers purchasing their own iPad and bringing them into the classroom. This is a different proposition. Where I have written about how an iPad can support teacher’s professional and personal learning, I have not written about how iPads can be used to support learning within the classroom. I therefore put out a call for thoughts and ideas on Twitter: "
