Enter the text and description to each photo and change the font color, if desired. Click the lock below the last picture to change your story from public to private (or back again). Click done to finish the story. Easily edit and view all of your stories and even share via Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or email. Click embed to get the code to share on a wiki, blog, or website. Viewers of the story can like, comment, or share. You are allowed 50 characters for the title and 240 characters for the description. Note: This is a public site. Be sure to look for appropriate examples of stories created by others.

tag(s): digital storytelling (142), images (265), photography (160)

In the Classroom

Decide whether to share student created stories with the public or make them private depending upon the content, parent permission, and school guidelines. Use this tool to create simple projects using images to tell the story. Use to show the story of an invention that resulted from a scientific discovery or law. Share the many things made from a particular element. In English, create a visual story and create titles for a cover photo or practice using adjectives or adverbs. Create a photo story for history, showcasing great people or specific historical events such as significant battles in World War II. In the arts, create a photo story of achievements of various artists. Students can take pictures of the process of the creations they make and write a "how to" photo story inspired by the images. Students can swap files of photos, using one another's pictures to create a photo story that comes to mind!

PushPage is an interesting way to learn about your friends and celebrities using a question and answer format. Explore the site to discover fascinating interviews with actors, chefs, politicians, and others. There are also interviews with everyday users, such as yourself! Learn about favorite songs, snacks, and favorite causes. Get involved and create your own PushPage. Sign up and begin your interview, so others learn about your interests. Share the page with the world or use privacy settings to only share with select friends or a private group. Ask your own questions of your community to create and personalize your sharing experience. PushPage will also work on your iPhone.

tag(s): biographies (86), digital storytelling (142), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

Incorporate PushPage into math data analysis lessons. Have students explore a question and collect answers from several pages and then graph the results. For example, one question asks "Where is the favorite place you have traveled to?" Follow that question to explore all of the different answers (including images). Have students choose one location to investigate further. Create PushPages for members of any classroom, sports group, or social organization as a way to get to know each other and build team work. Have students create their own question for the PushPage community and collect and analyze results. Students can research their favorite celebrity and write up a biography, practicing putting the information in their own words.

Interested in coding and looking for others who are interested as well? CoderDojo is an open source movement of free coding clubs for young kids that is led by volunteers and found around the World. Activities vary with each "club" but all focus on coding. Click "Organize a Dojo" to become a volunteer organizer. You are then responsible for setting up and maintaining the dojo. Not a coding master? Don't let that discourage you. Organizers are responsible for bringing learners and technical experts together. Students can click "Attend a Dojo" to find a location nearby to join. Volunteers can also find a dojo nearby to offer their services.

tag(s): coding (47), computers (94), engineering (125), STEM (134)

In the Classroom

When asked, explain that coding is just another "world language" in today's world. Team up with the PTA/ PTO or other groups in your community to find others interested in being part of a Coderdojo. Your Coderdojo can be considered an after school club, but on a larger scale can bring students from various backgrounds together for the common purpose of learning to code.

But if you want to keep track of your progress, registration is suggested. You can sign up with your email or Google or Facebook account. Use the cloud to store your results. This enables use of this tool anywhere, anytime. There is a thorough slide tutorial when first arriving at the site. You can find it again under the Help section. The tutorial explains how the lessons are set up, what you will see on your screen, and what each feature does. You do not have to register to use this site, only to track your progress.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): computers (94), keyboarding (38)

In the Classroom

Everyone will benefit by learning to type faster. Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students practice their touch typing independently. No need to have them sign up. They will see their speed and errors at the end of each list given to them. That information will accumulate for as long as they continue the practice. They could keep their results in a word document or a Google Doc. For more about Google Docs and Templates see the review here. Be sure to watch and see that students are using the proper touch typing position (no two finger typing!). Share this site with your students who are struggling with writing. Offer students the opportunity to learn to type in addition to write!

Select from creating a Resource list, Worksheet, Extended learning, or Demo. Collect up to 15 websites (know the page title and URL) and create annotations or directions. Viewing the track in frames will have the titles of pages in the left menu bar. Click on the title and the text of the page appears in the center. Any links that are on the page in the center will open in a new tab. Search ready-made Tracks to get an idea of how they work. Viewing tracks in Chrome is possible, but this tool does not seem to work with Chrome to create tracks.

tag(s): bookmarks (60), gamification (65), webquests (29)

In the Classroom

Create an Internet activity that is useful for students and allows them to work independently or with a partner in class or at home. Demonstrate on an interactive whiteboard or projector how to use the track. Be sure to put the URL for the track on your class website. This tool would be great for flipping your classroom. Students could read and view the sites at home and come to class with their work and their questions ready for a discussion. Create a bank of resources for each content unit within your subject or classroom. Use for web treasure hunts to learn or introduce any topic within your content area. Use for directed research. Search the ready-made tracks by subject, grade level, theme, track number, etc. to find one to use with your class. Collect links to informational texts for students to read "closely" a la CCSS. Students or student groups can create Trackstars of the resources they use for a project. Use with faculty and staff to showcase a variety of tools for professional development. Create Tracks you can share with other teachers in your building or district. If you would like to know more about webquests see TeachersFirst Webquest 101

Create a 3 Circle Venn Diagram with ease! Provide a title and label the three circles. Decide whether to make a list for each circle first, or start typing directly on the circles. The interactive Venn Diagram allows for generating concepts (ideas, words) and placing them in any of the three circles, or the overlapping area. Simply click and drag the word. When inputting a word, a text box is available to add a detailed description. The program allows editing and printing the finished diagram. (But it does not allow SAVING!) There is no registration required.

tag(s): graphic organizers (43), venn diagrams (16)

In the Classroom

Demonstrate the use of this with a student operating the three circle Venn Diagram on a projector or interactive whiteboard. Have students compare and contrast three well-known topics such as three television shows or sports. Ask students to suggest the items for the list for each circle. Have your demonstrator show how to drag and drop the items into the circle or overlap area. Then have small groups or individual students create their own Venn Diagrams. Venn Diagrams may be used in any grade level or content area. Use the 3 Circle Venn Diagrams as an icebreaker or beginning of the year activity. Randomly place three students together and have them use the Venn Diagram to show their similarities and differences. Use when forming new small groups during the year for students to get to know each other better. Use the three circle Venn Diagram as a study aid when reviewing a unit in science or history before a test. Compare and contrast three characters, three different versions of the same story, or a literary work and a painting and song, or a painting and film. Another suggestion is to have students compare books in a series and the shared elements in the books.

The Texas Performance Standards Project (TPSP) is a resource for providing differentiated instruction to gifted/talented (G/T) students. It is also a resource for providing enrichment for any and all students. The site includes materials for grade levels K-12 sorted by grade bands. Each band through 10th grade provides two or more interdisciplinary units including guided instruction as well as opportunity for independent research. The high school (or exit level) band provides for independent study under the guidance of a mentor who is an expert in the student's area of study. All materials are aligned to Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards.

Build your understanding of the U.S. economy through a creative, well-organized collection of short films (5-8 min) designed to explain 20 key concepts that any informed citizen needs to understand. Unlike many informational films, these are quite engaging. The collection is divided into five chapters on Economy, Money, The Role of Government, Globalization, and Inequality. All of us can better understand how our economy works from watching these films and exploring some of the follow-up discussion suggestions, even among adults. Teachers can obtain a link to free, downloadable lesson materials, activities, and extensions by filling out a form with their email address. (The email comes within a few minutes but watch your SPAM filter. It may be better to request the link via a home email to avoid school filtering!) The teacher materials include correlations to CCSS standards in ELA, Math, and Writing. The content of the films and lessons supports many major concepts of economics and government included in state and other standards. App versions are available for both iOS and Android.

In the Classroom

Sign up to download the support materials and plan one or several lessons to demystify the economy as part of a civics/government class or an economics course. Assign students to watch films in small groups and create digital booklets explaining the key concepts to the class using a multimedia tool such as Calameo, reviewed here. As economic issues come up in current events or during an election cycle, use these films to explain the underlying issues.
