Posted on Oct 24, 2014 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Oct 24, 2014

This is a short tutorial on building a Turn-in Box in FormsCentral. FormsCentral is a terrific online program for going paperless!

Engaging Students with Adobe Voice

Posted on Sep 16, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Sep 18, 2014

This is a lesson based around getting staff to learn how to use Adobe Voice. It also gets them to think about how it could help students with literacy issues become more engaged as well as giving a voice to special target groups. In NZ the target groups are Maori and Pasifika, but these could easily be altered to match the situation elsewhere in the world. The Voice_Help_Sheet is a sheet so that staff can reference it if they cannot get immediate help from me. I have designed it so that the sheet can be skimmed and, hopefully, the learner may pick up other ideas as they go through. The other sheet (Voice_Task_Sheet) is a sheet giving task and discussion instructions. Of the two exemplar Voice presentations, I created the first and the second is one that explains a scientific concept (so illustrating a different use). I have not included the exit slip as part of this download- this very much depends upon you personally and whether you think it was better to have an electronic form submitted.
