Use Text-to-Speech Functions for Better Proofreading - Lifehacker.com | Leadership for Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

"

Most of us know you should read something out loud when proofreading, but we may miss critical errors. We insert words we think are there, but aren't, because we wrote it. Using the text-to-speech function on your device will help prevent your internal autocorrect from missing errors.

Over at TUAW, they suggest using the Mac's and iOS's built-in text to speech function. Windows, Android and Chrome have text-to-speech too, though, so this tip works anywhere. You'll hear words that are missing and punctuation that's off when the text doesn't sound right. It's no replacement for a human, but can help in a pinch."

Technology Opens Doors: Rethinking the 5th grade Classroom...: The Power of Digital Texts; Annotating with Adobe Reader and TweenTribune

Technology Opens Doors: Rethinking the 5th grade Classroom...: The Power of Digital Texts; Annotating with Adobe Reader and TweenTribune | Leadership for Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

"The simplest addition of technology to my 5th grade Language Arts classroom made the greatest difference in the level of engagement of my students, especially in our non-fiction unit, in which we rely heavily on paper articles.  Even though the material is true, real life, and exciting, I still found my 5th graders, who are bombarded with technology outside of the classroom, bored to tears when I passed out an article for them to read and mark up with a pencil.
