reBlog from Angela Maiers: Angela Maiers Educational Services

I found this fascinating quote today:

As I reflect on these past 20 years of working in this great profession of education, and particularly the past few years of worldwide connections I've been fortunate to find due to the blogosphere, I'm excited about learning now more than ever. I strive for at least one WOW each day.Angela Maiers, Angela Maiers Educational Services, Feb 2010

Well, this must be a pain for the perfectionists (myself included) but the question is: is there such a thing as perfection? I have decided to name this personal bog "A work in Progress" because that's truly how I see myself and this idea became even clearer after my getting into Web 2.0 and everything I learn every single day.
I have just seen this video at John Spencer's blog and I invite you again for reflection. There is a lot of food for thought here and I'd love to read from you.
Hope you like it. To watch the video, please click here.

I have just heard about this tool which translates text to speech in different languages. It seems to be a great tool. I've tested it with a short text in English and checked the translation into Portuguese, Spanish and French (the languages I can understand) and I am impressed with the result. Of course whatever you type in English can simply be converted into speech and I can see a lot of potential for students to improve their pronunciation.
All in all, I highly recommend you give it a try. Take a look here and enjoy it.
