Favorite Web 2.0 Tools for Speaking and Writing

Students need to be able to understand language and become fluent in reading, writing and speaking. For this, I would focus first on tools to improve fluency, fluidity and reading comprehension. For fluency and fluidity I would use a combination of audio tools. The basic ones and easiest to access are any of your audio recorders on your PC, Mac, Chromebook or other mobile device. You can also use the free Audacity software or use a web-based tool like Vocaroo or Online Voice Recorder. For writing, reading, reading comprehension I would include the following: Digital Storytelling - Research, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity Voicethread StoryBird Nature Magnetic Kit PicLits Prezi To improve communication and writing I would use: Grammarly

Quill

Google Docs/Word
