[TIPS] Cite Bite

Here's a neat little application that you will want to hold onto for when those laptops arrive that your students will be using.

Ever want to send someone to a particular spot on a webpage as opposed to just the top of the page with hopes that they'll find the specific text of interest? Now you can, with CiteBite. Here's an example: http://citebite.com/e7i8s8d7fjdf

Notice that my selected quote is highlighted? Pretty neat, yes?

Notice: I tried this with my blogger blog but it wouldn't allow the page to fully render. I reported the bug to the site owner and he replied back in minutes to say that he would work on making that fix. But, it'll work for the VAST majority of your needs.

Very cool! Great tool for Universal Design for Learning! Combined with Click,Speak a free text-to-speech extension for Firefox, struggling students can hear the salient points read to them. Now they have access to the text that the rest of the class is reading!
Thanks for sharing.
