Jim Lerman's insight:


This app works very well. It's not quite up to the standards of Dragon Naturally Speaking, but then again, it is free.

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?

Psychologist: Social Media Causing A ‘Distancing Phenomena’ To Take Place - CBS DC | Spanish teaching resources |
With over 73 percent of online adults now using a social networking site, social media has dramatically impacted the world in both positive and negative ways. It has left many people to wonder how and if social media can mentally affect people.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 17, 2014 8:11 AM

The article looks at the effects on society and individuals by the evolution of social media and social networks. Perhaps not surprisingly, the author - Lemoyne College professor of psychology Krystine Batchois - finds both good and bad.


The downside identified by Batchos includes:


- cyber-bullying

- younger people adapting more to on-line interactions and therefore lacking real-life social skills

- mental health problems


Batcho asserts:


“The greater the social media use over time, the life satisfaction decreases,” 


I think I'd agree with that. There can be no real substitute for real-world life and experience.
