A couple of months ago I discovered a new text to speech tool called Voicepods. When I first tried it and wrote about it Voicepods would only create voice recordings based on text that you wrote. This week Voicepods launched a free Chrome extension that will let you have the text of any webpage read aloud. There are other Chrome extensions that do the same. What makes Voicepods different is that while Voicepods reads the text of webpage it also makes a recording that you can save and playback whenever you want. Watch my demonstration video to see how the Voicepods Chrome extension works. As you can see the video, Voicepods has another new feature. That feature is called "read along.

" Applications for Education The new Voicepods Chrome extension could be a good one for students who need some help with pronunciation of words while reading a webpage.

Get started with Team Drives. Team Drives is a shared space where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device. Unlike files in My Drive, files in a Team Drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done. If you’re trying to decide whether to add files to a Team Drive or to My Drive, ask yourself these questions: Are the files of interest to most or all members of a particular project team? Do the files share a consistent theme? If you answered "yes" to both of these questions, creating a new Team Drive is a good idea. If the files are for a variety of projects, create multiple Team Drives.

After more than two decades in education, one thing I know for sure is that schools hold on to old things. With tight budgets we have to be careful to make things last, sometimes well beyond their normal lifespan. This is especially true for computers which should have a healthy life span of five years, but many schools keep them going twice as long. When the computers are older than the students, problems can arise: The computer gets slower and slower with each year and each program installed over those years.The operating system may no longer support modern versions of software.Or the operating system itself may no longer be supported or get new updates (Microsoft ended service for Windows XP on April 8, 2014). So what is a school supposed to do with that 9 year old Dell desktop or that 7 year old Lenovo laptop?
