Scroll through to view already-created stories to get a sense of the site's features, then click "Get Started" to begin your story. Add memories using photos, documents, video, audio clips, and much more. When telling your story, view it in several different formats. Choose memories, timeline, tags, or map to look at stories from several different perspectives. Some videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): biographies (87), digital storytelling (145), portfolios (28)

In the Classroom

Have students use The History Project to gather resources and tell the story of any period of history. For example, when studying World War 1, add newspapers, recordings, and photographs to discuss events leading to World War 1, and then add information throughout the war to it's end. The History Project is an excellent tool for creating and sharing biography projects, exploring career options, and for creating a portfolio to include with college admissions. Start a History Project the first week of school and add information throughout the year to tell the tale of your school year.

Create and design stunning infographics with Canva's drag and drop infographic creator tool. Choose from several design layouts to begin. Upload images from your computer or your Facebook account. Change your background, add text, and personalize as desired. When complete, choose from links to publish, download your creation as an image or PDF file, or copy the link to share via URL. This tool works well for collaboration projects too, share the URL with others and choose the "can edit" option to allow others to make changes. There is an iPad app (free) available for this tool. Note: you must register (with email and password) before you can access this site.

tag(s): data (148), infographics (42), posters (36)

In the Classroom

Experiment with Canva on a projector or interactive whiteboard (let the students do it!) using different design "themes." Make changes without having to configure the whole Infographic. After creating Infographics as a class, review the other types to show basic design principles. Students can create Infographics of a classroom topic, relationships and definitions of major terms, information from labs, and more. Find data and information that connects your content to the outside world, such as the statistics and causes for endangered species. Consider assigning the creation of an Infographic as an assignment to understand any curriculum content and connect it with the real world. For example, show the many ways electricity is used in the world or the impact of slavery on an economy. Or have students explain an experiment and report the results with graphical information to provide meaning. Learn about food groups (now displayed as myplate) by dissecting a food, diary, or a typical school lunch in terms of meeting daily requirements (and other nutrition topics).

If you use literature circles in your classroom, making an Infographic about a novel the group read would be a great conclusion for the lit circle project, and it might entice others in the class to read the novel. Post the infographics on your web page for all your students and their parents to enjoy.

To challenge your gifted students, have them research and create infographics depicting the tough issues or "flipsides" related to your curriculum topic: Major court cases and issues involving freedom of speech (during your Constitution unit), risks and benefits of nuclear power (in a physics class), how an author's experience influences what he/she writes, lead-ups to a current events crisis, etc.

tag(s): collaboration (5), DAT device agnostic tool (199), literature (275), reading comprehension (116)

In the Classroom

Use Prism to explore text collaboratively with your students. Paste in portions of any text and have students highlight indicated features or ask them to highlight areas of confusion. Students will need a Prism account; however, their work is anonymous when added to Prisms. Use the completed Prisms to assess student understanding and as a springboard for classroom discussions. Use across the curriculum to highlight and interpret texts in all subjects. Create Prisms for newspaper articles from different sources, have students highlight factual information, then compare and contrast information found using an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram, reviewed here. If students cannot have their own email accounts, consider using a "class set" of Gmail subaccounts, explained here; this tells how to set up Gmail subaccounts to use for any online membership service. Using Gmail subaccounts will provide anonymous interaction within your class.

Teachers can create and deliver classroom content online with this free, easy-to-use web application. As a teacher, staying organized can be a challenge. Keep all of your units and lesson plans in one place with Cloudschool. Students can access course content at any time via URL on any device without logging in. After creating an account, design courses with individual lessons using content you select and upload based on school standards. Add lessons, homework, assignments, even embed Google Docs and other content; then "publish" some, or all of the content. Your account is a personal education website called a Teaching Space whose URL you share with others. After logging in, use the Dashboard to navigate and easily manage all your Courses and Lessons. Mark courses with a tag so they will come up for anybody who visits your Teaching Space, or password protect your Lessons. Share with other teachers or students by sending Lessons and Courses via email. Download lessons as Word docs. Students can only interact via class discussions you set up and monitor in the lessons. As a simple learning management system, Cloudschool facilitates delivery of curricular content, and keeps you organized with your lessons and units. Find them easily next year! While free for individuals, there is a charge for institutions.

tag(s): classroom management (135), teaching strategies (24)

In the Classroom

Watch the short videos on the landing page to see how Cloudschool works; once signed up, you will have access to the very complete Help section. Within each course, create and distribute text-based or multimedia lessons containing a variety of formats which may be embedded, including audio, video, PDFs, and worksheets. Add discussion questions to all Lessons for students to reply to within your course environment. Use toolbars at the top as main controls for each page for easy navigation and creation. The left-side navigation menu links to Courses, Lessons, Curriculum Lists, and Files. Helpful tips appear by hovering over buttons. Click into a Course to add a new Lesson, then choose a Template, or use the Create New Lesson button. A Plus button at the top center of the page adds text, images, audio, and video to your lesson. Include homework, student discussion, assignments, and assessments which students submit outside of the Cloudschool environment. Notifications are available. After creating lessons, use your Teaching Space to give large or small group in-class presentations. Consider putting a bookmark on classroom computers to the lesson the students are to work on. You could also share the lessons on your class website. Share lesson plans with colleagues and administrators. Cloudschool is useful for any teacher to organize content and deliver it easily to individual students in class or at home as part of blended or flipped classroom environments. No classroom management tools are available since students do not register.

tag(s): flash cards (46), game based learning (103), gamification (65), quizzes (97), test prep (96)

In the Classroom

Introduce Termling to your class and demonstrate the different features available. Create study materials for individuals to differentiate learning. Have students set up and share their own study materials. Show students how to read carefully through their classroom notes and underline the most important word or words in a sentence. Then have them leave out the most important words for their flashcards. Learning support teachers might want to have small groups create cards to review together before tests. Have students create flashcard sets as a follow-up activity to "test" classmates on what they "teach" in oral reports.

Originally a desktop application, and now available on mobile devices, too, SuperNotecard is a virtual note-taking tool based on the traditional 3 x 5 note-cards concept. After creating an account, start a Project where you'll add note cards. Enter text via a simple text editor window. Flexible features allow cards to be edited, moved, and graphically notated. Cards may be organized by Decks, Categories, and tied to Reference source cards with built-in citation help. Simple tutorials will help you get started. Share projects by email. Exporting and importing work is possible. There are templates for fiction, nonfiction, script and flash cards. This site does have a slight learning curve. After five free projects, the cost is $25 per year, but projects may be deleted to stay within the free limit. There is an informative tutorial, created by a high school teacher, available on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the video may not be viewable. You could always view the video at home and bring it to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the video from YouTube.
This site includes advertising.

In the Classroom

With the emphasis in many state standards on gathering information from multiple sources, citing textual evidence in reading and writing, and producing argumentative writing and research, students need help in note-taking skills and citing sources. This tool will be useful to teach outlining, note-taking, and organizing. On an interactive whiteboard, or with a projector, demonstrate how to create a project, edit, and organize. The whole class or small groups can work together on one device to outline and gather facts and quotes from a writing sample. Students with email may share their projects with teachers or other students who import a copy into their accounts. Export Project files to review off line. The Flash Card option creates a study tool individuals or groups may use. Help is minimal, but a Community Forum shares usage questions and answers.

Quizlet Live is a classroom quiz game for groups created by the makers of Quizlet, reviewed here. Follow directions to create and share a quiz set and assign to student teams. At least six students are needed to create a Quizlet Live game. When students receive the code and log in, they find other team members and begin competing. Accuracy is encouraged over speed, providing a wrong answer will send teams back to start from the beginning of the quiz.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (199), quizzes (97), spelling (168), vocabulary (324), word study (80)

In the Classroom

Use Quizlet Live to introduce new topics or content, or as a review before testing. Quizlet Live would be an excellent tool for the start of the year to help students get to know each other, or use throughout the year to have students work with different students in cooperative learning activities.
