Grade 6/10 ICT Checklist Resources and Websites for your Students to use now

Many schools are looking for websites and programs that will allow their grade 6 and grade 10 students to show their 24 ICT skills to their teachers. Well, on this blog, i have categorised the 300+ resources into ICT checklist groupings. Go her and see what I mean:>l

Screencastomatic: free screen capture for windows I found out about this free screen capture program for pc today. It looks good as it seems like you can save the file you produce as a an avi or flv file. Some other popular screen capture tools only let you save it as a .swf file which you cant upload to youtube and seemingly impossible to convert to a flv or avi or wmv file type. For a small fee you can remove the watermark from your films. You can also install the program on your computer or use it live on the web as a storage place. i am going to have a look at this program soon. My colleague told me about it today! Thanks to him.

Free Puffin Browser (iPad) and a Dropbox app (iPad) = save any file from web to Dropbox and upload to web from Dropbox

An annoying thing about using the internet on an ipad is that it is hard to save files (eg word docs, ppt) that appear as 'links' on the web page and it is also hard to upload work from the ipad to web spaces. This is particularly true when you are using VLEs. Well, if you install the free version of Puffin Browser from the App Store (which also lets you play flash websites on the ipad) and install the dropbox app, then you can merely put your finger on the file link that you want to save and it asks you if you want to save the file to your dropbox account or to the ipad itself. You can also upload files from your dropbox to a web space using the Puffin free browser on the ipad.

Dragon dictation App (iPads) & (chrome) for accurate speech to text recognition

Sometimes teachers want to say a fair bit about a student's piece of work and give great feedback without them having to write or type out all the feedback notes to give to the student. One way to overcome that is to merely dowmload/install an app like Dragon Dictation and speak into the app with your feedback. Then the app converts it to text for you to copy and paste or email to your student straight away. Another similar program which i have learnt about tonight and need to review soon is called>/. . This apparently works the same but in your chrome browser. I guarantee you will save a great deal of time using dragon dictation when marking work (and wont have to constantly typing).
