Reading and comprehending literature in another language can be difficult.  These material sources are great supplements and additions to the text.  They can also be used in building background knowledge and writing activities.

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This app works very well. It's not quite up to the standards of Dragon Naturally Speaking, but then again, it is free.

Seems to work OK - talk to you computer and watch the words appear on the screen.  And when it's wrong, it's easy to edit manually.  Pedagogical applications, anyone?

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 17, 2014 8:11 AM

The article looks at the effects on society and individuals by the evolution of social media and social networks. Perhaps not surprisingly, the author - Lemoyne College professor of psychology Krystine Batchois - finds both good and bad.

 

The downside identified by Batchos includes:

 

- cyber-bullying

- younger people adapting more to on-line interactions and therefore lacking real-life social skills

- mental health problems

 

Batcho asserts:

:

“The greater the social media use over time, the life satisfaction decreases,” 

 

I think I'd agree with that. There can be no real substitute for real-world life and experience.

Interestingly I now feel more connected to more people than ever before. Support comes at all hours of the day and night - a sentence here and there results in more communication rather than less and increased close connection with groups of peopel who share similar interests. Life is no longer so insular and I find myself supporting more causes and issues of social justice both locally and globally.
