Weekly Article:

Talk to Text: A Hack on Grading 

"Fortunately, with the advent of ubiquitous technology and its continued improvement, I have found a particular 'hack' that allows for robust and effective feedback to my students and minimal effort on my part. In short, while using any mobile device or certain laptop computers, open the LMS and the box where you would normally type your comments toward any student assignment. Then, push the button on your tablet or phone for the talk to text and begin commenting."

"Some students choose to write their papers the same way. To laser-focus their thoughts and ideas as well as avoid writer’s block, I strongly encourage them to do so."
