Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 30, 2014 8:41 AM

Here is another list this morning that both parents, students and teachers might find helpful.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 5:46 PM

Plethora of educational gaming sites that are geared towards elementary students. I've used http://funbrain.com and http://abcya.com before with my Kindergartners. A center-orientated system could be effective in getting kids to rotate from computer to computer, entrenching them in different subjects such as reading, writing, spelling, and math.

What a great quote. Pass it on to your kids when they set off to school!

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 8, 3:35 PM
If you have worked in any educational environment from elementary school, higher education, or corporate training, then you have had students who consistently struggle with a topic, skill, or prerequisite knowledge that they must learn in order to be successful. Likewise, many of those same students struggle to motivate themselves to learn the material they are struggling with.

Med Kharbach:

 

Today I am introducing you to a set of awesome tools that allow users to easily select any part of a text and hear it in the voice and accent they  want. These tools can be very helpful for language teachers. Students can use them to improve their pronunciation and develop their reading skills. All these tools are easy to use and above all free of charge. Most of these tools are extensions that you can install on your browser.

Why not have your computer read aloud to you?


I see this technology as a way to differentiate the reading experiences of students.  We know listening vocabulary is always greater than reading vocabulary.  Why not have your computer read aloud to you?

Just came across this wonderful grade tool. I graded 50 papers in under five minutes. It required no software, no special grade-tron sheets (they provide them for you to print). I'm still learning how to use it but it seems wonderful so far.
