Quick Key Mobile: grade multiple choice quizzes with your phone

Quick Key Mobile: grade multiple choice quizzes with your phone | TELT | Scoop.it
For the last 18+ months my former colleague Mike Morrell has raved about Quick Key. Quick Key is an app that turns your iPhone into a bubble sheet scanner. This morning I learned from Mike that Quick Key is now available as an Android app too.
Shona Whyte's insight:

I'm developing a new interest in mobile apps for new project iTILT 2.  Some of my teachers have iPads for their classes, so looking into what's good for language teaching there.

Reel App: Host and embed PPT and PDF files without registration

Reel App: Host and embed PPT and PDF files without registration | TELT | Scoop.it
Sharing images, PPT, and PDF files with students is simple enough, but to view the files online or embed them in a website, you would normally need to complete some sort of registration. That is where Reel App comes along.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Nice find by Nathan Hall; I use slideshare to keep my slides in one place, but I can see where this would come in handy for student one-offs or other emergencies ....

Table of keyboard shortcuts - Wikipedia

Table of keyboard shortcuts

In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a sequence or combination of keystrokes on a computer keyboard which invokes commands in software. Some keyboard shortcuts require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keyboard shortcuts require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously.

Shona Whyte's insight:

I keep needing to look this page up - maybe it will be useful to others.  Mac, PC and more, organised by programme and function.

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?

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.
