Great news…Yesterday I stumbled upon* a tool for students of all ages!
(*as seen on LifeHacker.com/5856460)
Announcify is a great little extension for Google Chrome and Android Devices and it works like this: (a) transfers any website to a text page, (b) zooms in and highlights, (c) reads the text aloud.
<<note: While testing this extension, I ran into one problem…occasionally it will read aloud the html code from the webpage.>>
Ideas for Tomorrow
- Announcify listening center (all you need is a laptop & some headphones)
- Have students create websites then listen back to what they wrote
- Upload tasks/quiz/tests for accommodation
- Download Google Chrome for WIN or MAC
- Visit the Announcify extension on the Chrome Web Store
- Download and enable the Announcify productivity extension
Please share how you are using Announcify as an educational tech tool in your classroom…post a comment below.Pin It
