Roaming Educator screencast episode 1: Readability
Thanks to Jane’s Pick Of The Day, Jane Hart, I recently stumbled across browser add-on tool, Readability and I think it could have a profound impact on my learner’s ability to read cluttered webpages without being distracted.
All too often I’ve observed my learner’s distracted by a myriad of visual stimulants when trying to read online text, particularly when reading news online. Readability is a simple tool which can be installed on the most popular browsers: Safari, Chrome, and Firefox.
Once installed, see tutorial above, one click of Readability button located in the toolbar area of your browser quickly removes all the distractions and presents the cleaned-up text in a format of your choice. Your learner’s will be able to read online without being distracted and without the possibility of viewing inappropriate and unregulated content.
Give and try and let me know what you think.
