A.T.TIPSCAST Episode #48: Vozme


Episode Overview-

Hey everyone,

Episode #48 features an interview with the free to use website Vozme.com.  To my knowledge, this is the first time in history when a person actually got a sit-down interview with an actual website. Vozme.com and I discuss strategies for using the website to create .mp3 files from text.

The episode features a bumper from Christine Southard and Lisa Parisi who are two fifth grade inclusion teachers in Long Island, New York.  I was fortunate enough to meet Christine and Lisa at NECC 09 and attend their presentation about the tools they use to differentiate instruction for the students in their classroom.  It was at their presentation where I learned about Vozme.com.
