Voice Typing In Google Docs: Chrome extension

To use voice typing in Google Docs simply open the "tools" drop-down menu and select "voice typing." When you make that selection a microphone icon will appear in the margin of your document. Once the icon appears, click it, allow Google to access your microphone, and start talking. Your spoken words will almost instantly appear on in the document.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Seems to work OK.  Now what should we use it for?

iPad courses on iTunesU

iPad courses on iTunesU | TELT | Scoop.it

By utilising iPad in a 1:1 environment or even 1:some then you are able to break free from the classroom and the traditional ways of disseminating content. By creating courses that contain learning materials, tasks, assignments, reference points and now with iTunes U 2.0 the discussions, you can now take the classroom wherever you need. Beyond the classroom and even further if using 1:1 or BYOD, students take the learning home with them and can continue learning in their own time, totally blurring the lines between school and home (which are becoming more and more different as schools fail to embrace the world around them and the tools students have in their own homes.)

Shona Whyte's insight:

Looks like a sensible approach to working with iPads
