Spell Up, A Chrome Experiment, Uses Voice Recognition, Gaming To Improve Your English |... - 4 views

  •  
    "Users can start at any level they want and the point is to build "towers" of words (hence the "Up" of "Spell Up"). The browser speaks words to the user, and he or she must spell it back to the voice. There are variations around this, such as word guessing games, unscrambling words, filling in missing letter blanks and pronouncing things correctly (and from where I played the game, "correctly" seemed to be the Queen's English)."

The Myth of Learning Styles - Finding Common Ground - Education Week - 3 views

  •  
    "As a teacher I was highly influenced by Howard Gardner, and spent a great deal of time matching up students to how I thought they learned best. It gave me hope that all students can learn as long as we find ways to introduce information to them in a way that works for them. I blindly moved forward thinking that I was finding each student's learning style.

    I was wrong."
