Allows you to dictate online. Does pretty well with Speech Recognition. Maybe students could use for speaking practice? Could be one form of feedback on their pronunciation, or could help them get their ideas down quickly when brainstorming?

How To Apply Reflective Practice when Teaching Online

How To Apply Reflective Practice when Teaching Online | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it
With online teaching, the only person to blame is yourself. That is what being objective means in this industry. An objective and reflective practitioner blames only himself or herself. If there is a problem, you need to consider ways to avoid it in the future by changing what you do and say, as well as how you act.

7 Important Questions Before Implementing Digital Portfolios

7 Important Questions Before Implementing Digital Portfolios | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it
Digital portfolios are something that are really starting to take off in schools. There are different software programs that will make “portfolios” easy to share, yet do we truly embrace the power that a digital portfolio can bring into our schools? Since it is “digital”, we need to go beyond a portfolio that only represents one year of learning, but can show the progression over time.

Teacher Feedback for Teacher Trainers

Teacher Feedback for Teacher Trainers | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it

As a developing teacher, there are lots of courses you can do and resources that you can access to aid your development, but when you become a teacher of teachers, this often isn't the case. Feedback especially, is an area in which the door is often literally and metaphorically closed and you get little feedback yourself on this area of practice.

The problem with universal access to technology is the fact that it provides almost unrestricted access to information. Much of this information is fantastic and can give a real boost to the learning experience. The danger exists where there is mis-information, inaccuracies and worst of all information that might promote prejudice, discrimination, hatred and violence.
