Today Texthelp announced a number of welcomed additions to Fluency Tutor for Google. These include a new student dashboard area where students can view scores, feedback and listen to previous recordings, the ability to set target words per minute for individual students, and a new FREE Android App for students.
The Android app allows students to read and record passages assigned to them via Android tablets. Students can also take advantage of support tools such as Text-to-Speech, Picture Dictionary, Translator, and more. The video below provides an overview of how the app works.
In addition to these exciting new updates, a new competition for Fluency Tutor for Google was also announced. To enter, simply install Fluency Tutor for Google and begin sharing reading passages with students. The number of shares will be tracked automatically. Whoever shares the most passages over the next two weeks will win a Nexus 7 tablet! Second and third place winners will receive a Google Play gift card. Visit the Fluency Tutor contest page for more information.
