10 Free Text to Speech Tools for Educators ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Online Education | Scoop.it

Med Kharbach:


Today I am introducing you to a set of awesome tools that allow users to easily select any part of a text and hear it in the voice and accent they  want. These tools can be very helpful for language teachers. Students can use them to improve their pronunciation and develop their reading skills. All these tools are easy to use and above all free of charge. Most of these tools are extensions that you can install on your browser.

Why not have your computer read aloud to you?


I see this technology as a way to differentiate the reading experiences of students.  We know listening vocabulary is always greater than reading vocabulary.  Why not have your computer read aloud to you?

Lisa Nielsen:


Ever wonder how students feel about learning online? At the recent iNacol Virtual Schools Symposium participants were treated to an experience that is surprisingly is rarely available at education conferences. We had the opportunity to hear directly from a panel of students who explained why they preferred learning online. Here are some of the reasons shared by these students and others I heard from explaining why students preferred this method of learning.

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) .

Seven Habits of the Professor of the Future

Seven Habits of the Professor of the Future | Online Education | Scoop.it

"What will a professor at a college or university be doing in 2020 and how might we understand the changed nature of their work as an opportunity?

 

The answer to this question begins with the idea of the typical work week for the professor of the future – what will occupy his or her time? All of the examples here are based on known developments which are either in prototype, available now or in design stages.

 

The future is not a straight line from the past. It will be different. Let us look at the seven habits and then at the implications for the nature of the work of professors."

Raising, Communicating, and Enforcing Expectations in Online Courses

Raising, Communicating, and Enforcing Expectations in Online Courses | Online Education | Scoop.it
As an instructor new to the online environment, I carefully reviewed the syllabus and the requirements for the course discussions and assignments and incorporated the following ideas from Myers-Wylie, Mangieri & Hardy: a “what you need to know” document that includes policies about late work, formatting, source citations, grading and feedback, and the dangers of plagiarism; a separate “assignments at a glance” calendar that details due dates and submission instructions; a “frequently asked questions” thread in the discussion forum; detailed scoring rubrics for each assignment, and example assignments. As is typical in the online environment, my course was equipped with areas for announcements and discussions and a grade book with a place to post comments for individual students. I used all these formats to communicate with students about course requirements and provide detailed feedback.
