- Since I have been asked to advertise this:
- These Speech recognition tools, while an invaluable partial evaluation automation or AI tool, come free with MS-Windows (7 Enterprise/Ultimate, 8 all distributions) – crucial for often resource-strapped language learning environments.
- The tools do not come with pre-built exercises – a blessing in disguise since this makes them easier to integrate them with your existing textbook-based syllabus. I provide some ideas how you can easily derive speech recognition exercises from your syllabus/textbooks.
- I recommend having a look at the entire new issue of FLTMag, the magazine on technology integration in the world language classroom, which
- examines other software that supports second language learning with video conferencing, support for writing and vocabulary learning (on tablets versus print materials) ,
- reviews a book on “Ideas for integrating technology in the classroom”
- and advertises upcoming conferences. Hope to see you there.
