Text Wall - using SMS in the classroom

Text Wall is an interesting concept where students can send messages to a site and then the entire class can see this messages displayed on a monitor or interactive whiteboard.  For the Czech Market, I think SMS pricing is too high.  I'd be interested in finding more services like this if anyone knows any! :)

Viewbix - Empower your video. Add apps to any video: YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook. Add a call-to-action. | 21st Century Classroom | Scoop.it

Here's an interesting app for teachers, classes or anyone who wants to add calls to action within videos.  I tried it and it is really easy.  If you're making videos I highly recommend adding calls to action to encourage viewers to come to your site, fill out a form, and many other actions.  Check out the "Demo" tab and see the case studies there.  If you're a Grammar Girl fan you can find her case study on this tab in the Education section.

Top 10 Free Online Tutoring Tools for 2012 | Edudemic | 21st Century Classroom | Scoop.it

Here's a nice list of apps for teachers using technology in the classroom.  Gchat and Google Talk are mentioned, however, currently I use Skype for both of these services.  Google Docs is great!  Jing is an application I'm considering using next.  And for Skype with Idroo, well, I'd want to have a tablet for that to be able to write legibily because I'm horrible at writing with a mouse! ;)

I tested this application only with 1 or 2 paragraphs of really poorly written text.  It didn't work very well.  But, the applicaiton claims it is designed for longer works like Essays, Theses or other academic papers.  However, I imagine tools like this one would be greatly appreciated by teachers around the world.  Try it with your students papers and please let me know how it worked!
