Philippe Trebaul's curator insight, March 28, 2016 11:34 PM



If you are looking for a bird's eye view on what alternative collaboration tools are now available for different kind of projects and purposes, I do have what you are looking for.


The new Best Online Collaboration Tools 2014 directory is now public. It contains over 370 collaboration tools organized in over 25 different categories ranging from video-conferencing to screen-sharing, collaborative reviewing and many more.


The tools listed have all been checked and verified and represent my own personal census on what is available today for each one of the categories listed. There is no attempt (yet) to provide individual evaluations or recommendations, though I have tried to subjectively rank tools in each category according to their value and importance.



The directory is updated weekly.

New suggestions, comments and request for revisions and changes are highly welcome.


Free to use.

This is one of my favorite tools. It pulls up images too and with the new image editing tools it is so easy to put in a nice picture.

A List of Free audio books for kids

A List of Free audio books for kids | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Audio story books are a great means of improving learners reading and listening skills. There are several website resources now offer free audio materials but not all of them are free. To look for quality audio books that are free can take you a lot of time and energy.

 

In this regard and in an attempt to make it easy for educators visiting Educational Technology and Mobile Learning to get a free access to the materials I have been reviewing here about the best websites you can browse for free audio books, I have compiled a list of links in a presentation that you can download and share with your students.

As a future teacher I'm on the lookout for the latest in networking that I could use in the classroom, and this is one of those things. If it's easier for my students to communicate, they'll be more likely to study and work together on projects and homework.

Free Tools to Go Paperless for Teachers

Free Tools to Go Paperless for Teachers | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

Have you ever thought of going to school paperless ? Well if you have not, then you need to consider it. I know people still have that standard image of the teacher in that white apron with a desk full of papers and binders. We do not need to have all that load of papers around us to be effective, technology has several easy ways to facilitate your life and make it way easier and more enjoyable. Let me share with you here an example that I personally experienced. Some years ago I used to have problems in the aeroports because of the weight of my luggage. Every year that I go back home to see my parents I would pay for extra weight because my suitcase would be full of books. I hated it because some of the books I could not do without them and so could not leave them behind especially when I would be away for longer periods of time. Now thanks to mobile technology, my Kindle has loads of books that I take wherever I go without worrying about weight issues.

Simply type the speech for each slide, instead of recording it, and HelloSlide automagically generates the audio.

It gives more exposure to your presentations, making them searchable, editable, and available in 20 different languages.

There is a free version available which limits the  number of presentations you may do per month.

This was very easy to use and the pronunciation is quite good.
