In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth blogging about, I post a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” (you might also be interested in The 50 Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2017). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:
Maslo AI looks like it might be an interesting tool to let students (particularly ELLs) keep a voice journal on their phone. It provides prompts, as well as AI-driven feedback. I haven’t really explored it yet, though, so I’m not ready to add it to The Best Sites To Practice Speaking English.
Ocobot lets you make one free Chatbot. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Creating Chatbots.
Oorja is a free video-conferencing tool that supposed to be particularly designed for people to work on coding together, but it looks to me like it would be useful for anyone. I’m not going to add it to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration, though, until I know it’s going to be around for awhile.
I’m adding this next tweet to The Best Websites For Creating Online Learning Games:
