MeetingWords: Realtime Collaborative Text Editing

MeetingWords: Realtime Collaborative Text Editing | Education Miscellany | Scoop.it

Here's a great idea.  The next time you are attending a meeting, you, along with your peers, can take notes that are saved on the web.  Your group can edit the notes together and changes are instantly shown on everyone looking at the notes. 

 

There's the ability to chat while taking notes and have an ongoing backchannel discussion regarding the event or presentation.

 

There's no sign-up or cost either, making it easy to begin to create your text.

 

Super idea for BYOT and BYOD activities!

Apps for Guided Reading | Learning with iPads

Apps for Guided Reading | Learning with iPads | Education Miscellany | Scoop.it

We have carried out various projects in schools looking at using the iPads to encourage reading. Guided Reading time, or group reading time, is especially popular.
Ideally the teacher and the iPads would be in different groups – the iPads are encouraging independent reading, and activities which allow the children to explore books, character, plot and so on by themselves. Producing at the end of the 20min / 30min session something which can be saved either to a webdav or to dropbox or which can be shared to the rest of the class.
It is important that texts chosen and activities selected are appropriate to the level of the children, and often the teachers introduces a text to the children first. For this reason the iPads and activities were often on a two week rotation.
