Use Yippy to pull search results from other search engines and avoid being "tracked" by your own searches. Yippy groups topics together and breaks it up by clusters or "clouds." Yippy self-filters against many topics that students shouldn't be exposed to, such as gambling, pornography, political propaganda, or other inappropriate sites. As always, keep a close eye on students working independently and talk about what to do when something inappropriate comes up. While Yippy is safer than a general search engine, students still need to learn about safe and ethical behavior online, since nothing is foolproof. Enter your search term. View the definition at the top. Different clusters appear along the left navigation side to help refine your search and help beginning searchers learn how to add more specific terms.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): search engines (64), search strategies (29)

In the Classroom

Use for any topic in any subject area. For example, a search for evolution revealed the following clusters: Texas Board, Biology, Human, and Theory. View more options by clicking on all clouds at the bottom of the list. Discuss with your class what kind of information about the topic that you are looking for before choosing a cloud. Have a broad concept to discuss in class? Assign a specific cloud to each group of students and have them report their findings back to the class. Have a class discussion about how all of the pieces of information fit together. Create a class concept map that ties all the information together. Use a tool such as bubbl.us (reviewed here) to create and share the concept maps.

This site offers several interesting interactives for practicing math concepts at the elementary level. Many games go beyond the standard rote-type practice and involve critical thinking skills. For example, Beads on a String asks you to create a bead necklace using a pattern, but then asks that bead number 102 be blue adding difficulty to the challenge. Other activities involve estimation, money, logic, and symmetry. Activities can be sorted by age (5-12). Parts of this site appear in Dutch and you may have to simply hit the "translate" button to see the instruction in English.

tag(s): critical thinking (111), estimation (45), logic (237), money (190), puzzles (207), symmetry (54), time (141)

Solvr is an online, collaborative problem solving tool that might even make solving problems fun! The site is simple to use - enter a problem, then enter ideas that might help to solve the problem. Your entry instantly creates a unique url that can be shared with others. Anyone with the url can add ideas, comments, or additional problems to the original problem or proposed solutions, and their response is anonymous. Their thoughts then lead to other possible ideas, with the collaborative process leading to a solution. Each contribution can earn "votes." The entire thought process can also be printed out. Here is a simple example begun by our review team. No log in or registration is needed!

tag(s): critical thinking (111), problem solving (272), social networking (110)

In the Classroom

Use this site to solve classroom problems or curriculum related issues anonymously. For example, try the problem of increased erosion due to recent development. Or use to develop classroom citizenship skills with examples such as how to distribute roles for a classroom play or how much homework should be assigned. Post the question, provide the link to students on classroom computers, and let them input ideas. Share the site with parent organizations to use as a problem solving tool.

Only2Clicks allows you to create your own page with organized, tabbed bookmarks. Similar to a Google homepage, Only2Clicks has the advantage of being simple. There are only four skin or theme choices to avoid distractions. Bookmarks can be shared with other computers and even your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Yes, they have an app for that! Import bookmarks from your computer to use anywhere. While other sites such as Delicious.com or Diigo.com have a lot more options, the strength of this site is its simplicity. Users will not be distracted by extra buttons or tabs.

tag(s): bookmarks (62)

In the Classroom

Use this for students to make/access bookmark collections for projects at home or at school. Have them mark your school website on their front page so they can easily access it, as well. Share teacher-made collections of links for a specific project/unit.

How do you make a decision and weigh all of the factors? Use Decico. This decision making tool uses a decision matrix technique to look at the problem in context and calculate favorable alternatives. Select the alternatives you want to compare, choose how you want to compare them, and then compare the generated score. Highest score should be given consideration. Create a login to save your decision matrices. Link, download, or embed the results.

tag(s): concept mapping (24), debate (45), mind map (25), persuasive writing (56)

In the Classroom

Use for many kinds of societal, political, or environmental discussions and decisions, such as paper or plastic bags, drilling or not in ANWAR, etc. Use in literary discussions of alternatives faced by characters. Use in preparation for debates or persuasive writing. Generate a list of actions and alternatives and create the decision matrix. Use multimedia or conventional posters to generate information about the advantages and disadvantages of each position. Try a site like Piclits (reviewed here) or Typogenerator (reviewed here). Create a case study about a real life situation where a decision would have to be made and provide roles for students. Students use the decision making matrix with their assigned role to generate a vote for the issue. Consider using this tool for a project actually occurring in their neighborhood. For example, a field and trees being taken down as well as the changing of the landscape for a proposed development. Use the decision making matrix in Decico to determine why the decision to proceed happened or should happen.

This Study Skills site is fabulous! The activities are all divided by ages (5-9, 10-14, and 15-18). Each age level includes teacher information, parent information, and Learners... the link to find the neat interactives! Each age level also highlights four key areas: Do, Get, Remember, and Understand. Each area includes some age-appropriate text and interactives.

Highlights from the youngest level (ages 5-9) include Reading for Information, Sorting Shapes, Sorting Information, Kim's Game, Writing About Different Things, and others. The middle level (ages 10-14) includes Time Management, Exam Preparation, Note Taking, Revision, Memory Tips, Mindmaps, Pictograms, and others. The older students (ages 15-18) delve into topics such as Summarizing, Essay Writing, Learning Styles, Referencing, Learning from Lectures, and several others.

For professional purposes, there are also links (some PDF files) to research about the importance of teaching study skills. This site makes it easy and fun to teach these life skills! This site was creating in the United Kingdom, so you may notice a few spelling and pronunciation differences from American English.

tag(s): listening (92), logic (237), maps (292), note taking (38), organizational skills (129), sorting (10), time (141), writing (362)

In the Classroom

This is one of those rare sites that should be saved in ALL teachers' favorites. Be sure to list this link on your class website.

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have students work with a partner to navigate the age appropriate activities at the site. Why not highlight a different area each month or unit of study so you have material with which to apply it (Do, Get, Remember, or Understand). During month/unit one introduce study skills using the Do link and resources. Then further investigate subsequent study skills each month/unit using the other main topics : Get, Remember, and Understand. Have students try out some of their "new skills" before the unit test. Be sure to ask them afterwards why they were successful (or not) in applying the new study approach. Maybe even add a question about the latest study skill at the end of every test.

This site is full of learning activities and resources from the World Food Programme, developed by educators to be used in the classroom. Inspire students as global citizens through these lessons and service learning opportunities. The lesson plans and classroom activities cover all grades and subject areas, with themes ranging from "What to do about Malnutrition" to "The Millennium Development Goals." Classroom activities can be found by going to the link on the right-hand side of the page. Activities are labeled by age range, subject, and general category of the lesson (such as collaborative learning & problem solving or addition & subtraction of decimals). After choosing a lesson, click on download to access the lesson in an easy to print pdf document. Lessons are very detailed, including an overview, aims and objectives, materials needed, lesson procedure, and activity sheets. Another excellent resource within the site is titled Hunger 101. Resources in that section include useful information and resources for discussing hunger in the classroom. In the future, the site intends to include more resources such as teaching materials and maps for the classroom. The site also includes links to sign up for their Facebook page, Twitter feed, and blog.

KidRex is an engaging, safe search engine for students that is powered by Google Custom Search and Google SafeSearch technology. In addition to typical filters applied to searches, the site maintains its own database of inappropriate websites and keywords to further reduce the possibility of inappropriate search returns. The search engine is easy to use and similar to a typical Google search. You simply enter the search term and a list of sites is returned. Inappropriate search terms are returned with an "Oops, try again!" message. Before using the site, be sure to click on the Parents link for a quick overview of how the site works.
This site includes advertising.

This site offers short video tutorials for many common web 2.0 tools, technology tasks, and subject specific items. This is truly an awesome find! Some examples of topics (at the time of this review) include: Twitter Hashtags, Adding Pictures to your Wiki, Google Swirl, YouTube Interactive Videos, and countless others. Additional videos provide still images set to music and can be used during instruction. These videos include the American Revolution, Algebra Mistakes, and science topics. There appears to be a new tutorial added every few weeks, so check back often. The actual videos are hosted on YouTube, so they may be blocked in some schools.

tag(s): tutorials (47), video (273)

In the Classroom

This site is great for teachers and students. Show these videos using an projector or interactive whiteboard to introduce students to a new web 2.0 tool before starting a project. The videos are five minutes or less so they won't take up too much instructional time. Make this link available as a Favorite on you teacher public page as student self-help. These videos are also helpful for teachers who want to know more about tech tools but don't have the time to participate in lengthy workshops. Please note that the videos are embedded YouTube videos so they may be blocked by your district. If your school blocks streaming video sites, consider accessing this site and choosing videos at home. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

You can make your very own comic right now! At Write Comics, you will be able to create your own comics using the figures, backgrounds, animal, aliens, and dialogue bubbles, supplied by Write Comics. This site is extremely easy to use. There is no need to sign up or register. Once you click Finish, you will be given a link. Go to your link and print your comic or upload it to your webpage.

tag(s): comics and cartoons (71)

In the Classroom

Create a comic to put on your website. You might want to use Write Comics to display the vocabulary word of the day, the math puzzle of the week, a concept your students are learning in social studies or science. Have students create comic strips for dialog-writing lessons, summarizing, predicting and retelling stories. Use comic strips for literature responses. For pre-reading students, create a comic of pictures and have students tell the story based on the pictures/scenes. Make a class book of the comics created throughout the year. That book will become the most read classroom book of all in an elementary classroom. Use comics to show sequencing of events. When studying about characterization, create dialog to show (not tell) about a character. World language and ESL/ELL teachers can assign students to create dialog strips as an alternate to traditional written assessments. Have students share all of their comics on your interactive whiteboard or projector.

This site offers mathcasts provided by students and teachers of all ages and grade levels. Mathcasts are screencasts (screen movies of writing with voice) that focus on mathematics. The easiest way to get started on the site is to find the link to the mathcast library located on the left of the screen. When you open the link, there will be choices of mathcasts sorted by authors (children, students, teachers) and subject (Algebra and Calculus). In addition to the video mathcast, some presentations also include downloadable PDF tests and quizzes. For those interested in creating and sharing their own mathcast, there is information on how to do this by choosing the mathcasts link in the tree on the left of the screen, then choose to make your own mathcast. Suggested tools for creating mathcasts are Voicethread reviewed here and Jing Voicethread reviewed here.
