Listen and Write is a new web tool that I think has a lot of potential for English Language Learners.

A user first chooses a text he/she wants to hear read to him/her. Many of the choices are from the Voice of America, and are both high-interest and accessible. Their levels of difficulty are also indicated.

Then the story is dictated to you, and you have to type it correctly. You can choose the speed of the reading and how often it's repeated. When you type only the correct letters actually show-up on the screen, and you can ask for hints.

Icons are so ubiquitous and so much part of everyday life and the mainstream that it's easy to overlook their importance. Take the internet, for example, or even your own PC. Have a look. Without icons, the web and world as we know it would be the same. Icons are one of those under appreciated little arts. But that is soon to be remedied because the icon just got an entire search engine dedicated to it. It's called ICONLook and it searches for, what else--icons. Any icon you can think of, ICONLook will find it for you.

Interactive Whiteboard Resources

Big Brown Envelope was set up to allow teachers to share their resources with others around the world. Teachers, and trainers, are continuously reinventing the wheel when it comes to teaching materials. This is often unnecessary since someone out there probably has already got something that meets the need. On this site we hope you will find useful materials to help with your classroom teaching.
One of the ways by which we  support the use of ICT across the primary curriculum is through our publications. On these pages, categorised by subject, you will find a selection of articles providing information, advice and ideas. In addition there is a section devoted to reviews of software and books of particular relevance to primary teachers. These articles, which have all previously appeared in MAPE publications, may be reproduced for educational purposes provided that the original source is acknowledged.
