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.


Via Jim Lerman, Lavinia Ionica
Shona Whyte's insight:

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?

Convert PDFs to Kindle Format

Convert PDFs to Kindle Format | TELT | Scoop.it

PDF4Kindle is a neat little free service that will convert PDFs into .mobi format for reading on Kindle devices. To use the service all that you need to do is upload a PDF and let PDF4Kindle do the rest. When the conversion is complete you can download the .mobi file. The converted file will let you resize text as you would with any other Kindle document.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Via Free Technology for Teachers. Since you can also use a (free) Kindle app on other mobile devices, this service can be useful beyond Kindle owners.

8 Ways To Unlock The Power Of Your Interactive Whiteboard - Edudemic

8 Ways To Unlock The Power Of Your Interactive Whiteboard - Edudemic | TELT | Scoop.it
Interactive whiteboards are a great classroom tool. Many teachers use them to project and capture images - basically as a high tech, connected chalkboard.
Shona Whyte's insight:

All good sense and relevant to language teaching with the IWB.  I'd only quibble with #7: if you want the students to work collaboratively, don't turn it on.  Students can work collaboratively at the IWB, without teacher supervision, and while other learners are involved in different activities.

An introductory guide to Padlet: Nathan Hall

An introductory guide to Padlet: Nathan Hall | TELT | Scoop.it
What is it? Think of this as an online multimedia bulletin board. That means you can post messages, pictures, website links, documents, audio files, and videos on the virtual wall. These appear as message boxes that can be moved around the page. When you click on one of those items, they get larger so they are easier to read or see. The best part is, you can share it and have others add to it by posting their own items. This makes it a great place to collaborate and share.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Basic instructions, plus suggestions for language classroom activities.

Free Technology for Teachers: A Task Timer to Use Offline or Online

Free Technology for Teachers: A Task Timer to Use Offline or Online | TELT | Scoop.it

Task Timer is a free Chrome app that you can use to time multiple tasks or events at the same time. The app works online and or offline in the Chrome web browser. After installing the app you can create a set of tasks that you want to time. You can run multiple timers at once or run them individually. The timer functions on a countdown basis. A chime sounds when time has expired on each timer.

Shona Whyte's insight:

It's the offline part that attracts me, since I don't have a reliable internet connection in many of my classrooms.

Oxford Text Checker | Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary

Oxford Text Checker | Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary | TELT | Scoop.it
Oxford Text Checker at OxfordLearnersDictionaries.com. The Oxford Text Checker will check the vocabulary in any text against the Oxford 3000 word list. See more at oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Paste your text in the box and find out what percentage of the words belong to the "Oxford 3000" suggested as the most useful for learners. 75% means your text is advanced, 90% upper intermediate, and 100% makes it lower intermediate (or below, I assume).
