dotSUB – Multi-lingual Subtitles the Creative Commons Way

Now this is amazing to me: dotSUB uses a Creative Commons license and a wiki format to provide video captioning in multiple languages. Anyone can view the videos in any of the available languages. To upload, caption or translate a video, you need a registered account. The opportunities here are endless, for people learning languages, sharing cross culturally, those struggling with literacy or those who can't hear. Explore...

‘Ning,’ Classroom 2.0 and AssistiveTech – a new world of connectedness

I have been a list serve fan for several years now, thanks to Joy Zabala and her good work at QIAT.  I feel like I've got a whole world of experts at the click of an email send button.  But often all that good insight and discussion gets lost in the archives, and I've longed for a 'better way.'  I keep thinking a wiki or two might do...

Combining Cool Tools

Okay, so now I'm blending Google Doc's new online presentation software with Plasq's cool and easy screenshot/annotating/uploading tool called Skitch. I think this has potential. The image is everything, because you write your step-by-step instructions right on it. Both students and teachers could use Skitch to create, snap or import images, then write and draw on them to give instructions, create maps or diagrams, indicate key features of...

Free Technology Toolkit for UDL in All Classrooms – Spread the Word!

Karen Janowski does it again... an extensive blog post on free technology tools for universal design in the classroom. Karen is one of the most down-to-earth and get-it-done people I know and she has a great way of communicating. Bookmark her post and keep coming back for updates. Now, what I'd really like to see is a wiki on the same topic, so we could all add in...

Library 2 Go – download your library’s audio (PC only)

This is what I've been looking for (and still am, since it's PC only, and I'm a Mac, as they say...). The Oregon Digital Library Consortium Library2Go lets you check out audio library materials by digital download, from home (or anywhere), just as you would check out a book from the library - for FREE, with the same usage rights you'd have with any checked out material. Very...

“Scratch” – Imagine, program, share

I just stumbled across this web site and have GOT to make the time to figure it out.  Looks like a cool drag-and-drop animation/programming tool in web 2.0. As they say, Snap together blocks... to create stories, games and animations... and share your creations on the web. Very cool.http://scratch.mit.edu/

Make Your Own Comix!

Just in from the MadATer... Make your own comic at makebeliefcomix.com. What a great way for kids (or adults) to dip into creating comic strips - for fun, for social stories, and more. I especially like the tips that pop up on the bottom.

It is organized alphabetically, but if you choose a few handy keywords, you can usually jump to the products that would be of interest to you.
