Social learning networks promote student engagement, global awareness

Social learning networks promote student engagement, global awareness | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"Think about it … what do kids want? What do you want? How about the chance to be masters of tasks, have lives with purpose, and have the choice of when, where, and how when it comes to engagement in learning and teaching? The classroom is no longer a physical place. Perhaps it never has been. Learning is experiential and it occurs, usually not on schedule, but 24 hours a day. What does this mean in an age of Common Core standards and high-stakes testing?"

WordTalk - A free text-to-speech plugin for Microsoft Word

WordTalk - A free text-to-speech plugin for Microsoft Word | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
WordTalk - A free text-to-speech plugin for Microsoft Word. For people with reading and writing difficulties, having text reinforced by hearing it read aloud can be very useful.

 

Do you and/or your learners proof read their work?

 

When producing documents,I always read the text out loud and, quite often, recorded it at the same time, using Audacity.

 

That way I spot mistakes that my eyes often miss and I also have the text in a format many learners/colleagues preferred (Audio/mp3 files)

 

Many people wouldn't be comfortable doing that and prefer text to speech tools.

 

There are plenty of add-ons to do this task in a browser, but for desktop programs like Microsoft Word, they are a little harder to come by.

 

WordTalk is an example of a text-to-speech plug-in for Microsoft Word, and best of all, it’s completely free.

 

WordTalk has all the features users need from a text-to-speech program.

 

As the text is read, the text is highlighted making it easier to follow along with the audio.

 

Users can...

- change the colour of the highlight to match their preferences.

- change the speed at which the program reads the text.

- also save the speech for listening to later (WAV or MP3)

CPD: How to Add Subtitles To Your Google+ Videos

CPD: How to Add Subtitles To Your Google+ Videos | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Closed Captions are subtitles for videos which are useful for people who...
- want to translate their videos into different languages or
- are trying to reach out to the hearing impaired.

 

For those who want captions or subtitles on their videos, Google allows them to add subtitle files to videos on Google+.

 

The subtitle files that Google+ currently supports are SRT and SUB files.

 

This CPD post shows readers how to...
- create the files that hold text information that, in turn, enables the video to determine what subtitles to show at certain points of the video.
- add those captions to the video.
