Natan Amos's curator insight, December 13, 2015 11:01 PM

All businesses before they actually become businesses need to ask themselves an important question. That question is who is their main target audience? Once they answer who they are trying to target then they need to know a few things about that specific group of people. That is where this interesting article comes into play.

 

It mentions the different forms of technology each generation uses. That should be looked at by businesses to make sure that they are able to provide information for every device such as apps for the phones and tablets as well as properly functioning websites for the desktops  and laptops. 

 

It also mentions how certain generations are likely to be on the computer at certain times so timing out correctly notifications and emails you want your target audience to see is very important to take into consideration.

Collaboration, Tools, and Add-Ons. Oh My. Using G-Docs to Improve Student Writing | Tech Learning

When students have access to Google Docs it’s like having a personal tutor by their side as they write. Innovative educators who empower their students to use these tools can support students in strengthening their writing skills even without the support of a teacher. This is important for innovative educators who take seriously, our job to develop independent learners.  Here are some ways Google Docs supports that. Collaborate with Experts and others The heart of G-docs is its power as a collaboration tool.  Support your students in safely and responsibly developing a learning network they can turn to review and edit their work. This might be family members. It could be experts. Perhaps it’s a mentor. With Google Docs you can invite anyone in the world into your classroom to support your students. Voice to Text Did you know students can have their voice converted to text? Simply go to “Tools” in the menu bar and select “Voice to Text.” This is an excellent tool for both English Language Learners and emerging writers. They can watch as what they say is translated into text. Speaking of translation, look at the next tool. Translate Document Also in the toolbar is an option to translate the document. This is powerful for speakers of languages other than English. They may want to begin their writing in their native language and translate it. We all know this will result in some translation errors. When the translated text appears, the student can review and revise for accuracy. This might also be a good tool for a student who wants to translate their writing for a parent or family member who is a non-native speaker. Research Select “Research” in the tool menu and all the options in the left column of the chart below are at your fingertips. If you click the down arrow under the search bar, you can select your citation format.   The options in the research bar are pretty self-explanatory.  Scholar brings you to scholarly articles on the topic. Personal searches your own documents and files. But what you might not know is that in addition to the pop-up preview, you will also get and insert link button to add a hyperlink of the site to your document as well as a Cite button to add a footnote to your document for that website.  While students can use the research tool to add footnotes to their document, if you they want a detailed biography page they’ll need an add-on, which brings us to our next section. To get Add-ons you must visit “Add-ons” in the menu bar and select “Get Add-ons.” There are numerous add-ons. Here are a couple add-ons that will help your students improve their writing. Easy Bib Students can use the EasyBib add-on to create a detailed bibliography page. Students can select  Book, Journal Article, or Website. They find this by typing in title, ISBN, website, or other keywords in the Search box. Once the student finds the desired result, they can click the Select button to add it to their bibliography list is MLA, APA, or Chicago style. When ready, simply click Add Bibliography to Doc and EasyBib adds a Works Cited section to the their document. Students can return to the EasyBib tool as needed to add and remove sources, and to update the Works Cited section. SAS Writing Reviser The SAS Writing Reviser targets potential problem areas in writing directly in the document (no need to export or import). It focuses on these five areas: Economy: Finding ways to be more concise and direct. Variety: Varying sentence structure to more fully engage readers. Power: Writing more forcefully (e.g., check your verbs; we'll list them all for you). Clarity. Enhancing coherence by carefully stating a thesis, ordering paragraphs, and arranging sentence parts. Here is what it looks like when SAS Writing Reviser helps me eliminate passive voice by highlighting potential problems.  SAS Writing Reviser helps students think like a professional writer because the learn to ask questions experienced writers ask automatically. This enables them to express themselves with more accuracy and power. Writing reviser is just one in the  Writing Navigator series from SAS Curriculum Pathways. The series also contains a planning, drafting, and publishing tool. Check out writingnavigator.com site for all the details. These are just a few of the many ways that collaboration, tools, and add-ons can help you students improve their writing.  What do you think? Are any of these tools something you might introduce to your students? Are you already using some of these tools or others? How did it go? Lisa Nielsen writes for and speaks to audiences across the globe about learning innovatively and is frequently covered by local and national media for her views on “Passion (not data) Driven Learning,” "Thinking Outside the Ban" to harness the power of technology for learning, and using the power of social media to provide a voice to educators and students. Ms. Nielsen has worked for more than a decade in various capacities to support learning in real and innovative ways that will prepare students for success. In addition to her award-winning blog, The Innovative Educator, Ms. Nielsen’s writing is featured in places such as Huffington Post, Tech & Learning, ISTE Connects, ASCD Wholechild, MindShift, Leading & Learning, The Unplugged Mom, and is the author the book Teaching Generation Text.

Deep Grammar - Grammar checker

Deep Grammar - Grammar checker | EAP, ELT and EFA | Scoop.it

We all make mistakes when we write, and it would be nice if a computer could help us see the ones that spell checkers miss. Grammar checking is hard because language is squishy, so you can’t just write down the rules and check that they are followed. This lack of regularity is why grammar checkers have always been so poor.

Maria Angélica Morales Valencia's curator insight, September 14, 2016 10:08 PM
Normally, when we write an article, essay, narrative paragraphs, etc… we are so inspired that do not pay attention in the grammar mistakes, although word lets us know certain mistakes, it is an incomplete tool that has a lot of ambiguous suggestions. Most of the tools that we found at Internet are not useful due to the fact that are not developed correctly so we have a lot of ideas and our written text is almost perfect but as students, our grade is low for the grammatical errors. Now, thanks to 5 tools we can check our grammar and be sure that our text is accurate. The tools are: Grammarly, Paper Rater, After the deadline, Online correction, Hemingway Editor. All of these tools are available to improve our grammar competence.

Interesting point about the integration of other languages and cultures into the global dialog (or is it the lack thereof?).

Web 2.0 for ELT's curator insight, December 15, 2015 11:41 PM

This should be a warning to be taken rather seriously: 

"The lack of language diversity on the web, according to some activists, is aiding in making lesser known languages obsolete.

These languages, markers of culture and identity, are a way to construct a collective sense of belonging, providing a direct connection to history. When languages die, a part of culture dies — and preservation of culture is an important global goal."
