Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here is simple technology for inspiring students to become imaginative ,empathic,thinkers. Play the lyrics to a song then allow them to think about it. 

 

Excerpt:

“The fillip for us is twofold,” McCutcheon explains, “As an Educate Together school, we teach the children an ethical curriculum. We want the children to become more sophisticated in the way they think about moral issues but we don’t want to appeal to any particular domination because we are a non-denominational school."

 

“The other appeal is under the citizenship remit and developing the ‘children’s voice’. You can set up student councils, and so on, but what’s most important is ensuring the teachers’ moral pedagogy over the course of the day is one that promotes children’s voice.”

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.

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)
