Learning2gether with Vance Stevens - Teaching Writing on iPad and Mobile Devices using Voice Tools

Sunday June 7, 2015 1400 GMT

 
What was it about? 
 

Vance Stevens has been exploring techniques for teaching writing on iPads and mobile devices using voice tools for leaving comments in Google Docs, and in speaking what students write on paper into Google Docs for them, so they can revise more easily. He's also fathomed the trick of importing images into Google Docs on iPad to allow students to incorporate Word Clouds and other images into their documents using iPads. He was part of a workshop where these ideas were presented at TESOL 2015 in Toronto:

and he and colleagues are planning to present similar materials at ISTE in Philadelphia later this month.
