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

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Add Voice Comments to Google Documents | Learning 2gether | 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."

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, April 23, 2013 6:18 PM

"We refuse to wait to find our place in the world. The question is whether school is going to help us or continue to try to stop us. It shouldn’t take a trip halfway across the country to answer that."

Educational Leadership:Teachers as Leaders:Ten Roles for Teacher Leaders

Educational Leadership:Teachers as Leaders:Ten Roles for Teacher Leaders | Learning 2gether | Scoop.it

Teacher leaders assume a wide range of roles to support school and student success. Whether these roles are assigned formally or shared informally, they build the entire school's capacity to improve. Because teachers can lead in a variety of ways, many teachers can serve as leaders among their peers.

So what are some of the leadership options available to teachers? The following 10 roles are a sampling of the many ways teachers can contribute to their schools' success.

Encouraging Teachers to Teach Creativity | Powerful Learning Practice

Encouraging Teachers to Teach Creativity | Powerful Learning Practice | Learning 2gether | Scoop.it

By Margaret Haviland

 

" As the person most directly responsible for our school’s professional learning, I have been wondering what professional development looks like when you turn Bloom’s on its head and ask teachers to encourage students’ creative thinking early in the learning process. Teachers need to model their own creative thinking and embrace “messy” assessments."
