Asian Tigers, Sub Saharan situations and Portuguese help!
Categories: Development and HealthLooks like we (finally) have class in a box working. If we do, I'd like to get Higher working on a voicethread. I don't know how this will cope with a high usage, but seeing as schools can buy packages, I'm hoping this won't be a problem. I haven't had any problems using this with 30 s1's, but the s2 exercise kept freezing. I'm hoping that Higher students might even respond to each other with a bit of debate on the thread, assuming there are no technical hitches. Re: the speech, apologies about the tinny sound. I tried to upload the audio after pre-recording it, but you need something other than a free account for that. This is just voicethread recording off my computer playback.I have been having some conversations with a Portuguese geographer, Pedro Damião, who has also suggested the Brazil HDI atlas for us to have a look at. I probably won't get the chance to do this before Christmas (getting an IT job in school for a download might be difficult) in class and there is also the minor problem of the atlas being in Portuguese , but I'm going to have a play with this and maybe use it when we are revising later in the year. Many thanks, Pedro!
