This "magical," cloud-based video editing service uses your unedited footage and turns it into more exciting short movies to share with others (or random mashups of your footage.) The technology analyzes the footage using facial recognition. It is able to sort out pets from people as well as backgrounds, landscapes, and behaviors. This is one of the simplest video editing sites around. Simply upload your files, and Magisto does the rest. Uploaded videos are analyzed and edited to remove less interesting parts, including blurry sections or not-so-great footage. Choose from a selection of music to overlay the clip or upload your own. This is a device-agnostic tool, available on the web but also available for free as both an Android and iOS app. Use it from any device or move between several devices and still access your work. App and web versions vary slightly. Like using YouTube? Any video uploaded to YouTube can be edited automatically using Magisto's tools integrated in the YouTube site. Note: Uploading your video footage transfers rights to your content to Magisto!

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (170), video (276)

In the Classroom

Use as an easy way to edit videos without using costly programs or difficult, time consuming applications. Use for any video that needs to be edited before placing on a wiki, blog, or site. Use for any student project, videotaping of classroom activities, or tapes of students explaining their experiment. Create a compilation video of short clips from throughout the year to share as an end of the year overview. Take long sections of video from a field trip and use Magisto to shorten to the most important bits. Magisto. Use this tool easily in your Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) classroom since all students will be able to access it for free, no matter what device they have.

This interactive was intended for woodworkers but works very well in Geometry class. The activity works by showing you a series of geometric figures that need to be adjusted a bit to make them correct. A square highlights the point that needs to be moved or adjusted. Use the mouse to drag the blue square or arrowhead where you feel it is 'right.' Once you let go of the mouse, the computer evaluates your move, so don't let up on the mouse button until you are sure. The 'correct' geometry is also shown in green, so you can see where you went wrong. You will be see each challenge three times. The table to the right shows your score ach time. You can compare your score to the last 500 players or to your last best score.

tag(s): angles (86), geometric shapes (165), puzzles (207)

In the Classroom

This site is perfect for use on the interactive whiteboard. Display the game and challenge students to make adjustments to the shapes. Create a class chart of scores for a class competition. Use the site to review Geometry terms. Create a link to the site on classroom computers for students to practice on their own.

Find inspirational videos for yourself and to share with your students. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design. It was developed around fostering and spreading great ideas. This wiki also includes additional resources to use with the TED videos in your classroom. TED collects the thoughts of leaders in different fields, so you will learn things that you have never considered. Use TED talks to inspire, provoke and stimulate discussions in your classroom. Depending on your class and the age of your students, you may need to scaffold the videos by providing some background information for your students. This site also has a page titled "How to "Do" a TED Talk" where you and your students can view videos that give advice about how to create a TED type video.

tag(s): critical thinking (112), gifted (92), inquiry (37), video (276)

In the Classroom

Once or twice a week use your projector or interactive whiteboard to show a TED selection to the entire class. Have the individual students write questions they have about the video/topic. Then have students write down the message they think the creator wanted them to know or think about from this video. Have students talk in small groups about the TED video and their questions and ideas. Have the student groups share out the important questions and thoughts with the whole class. After the class discussion, have the students write a group response, either on paper or on your class blog or wiki. Embed the video or add the link to your website for students to review on their own in class (be sure to provide headphones), or at home.

These videos make powerful writing prompts. After viewing a few videos in this manner, you may want to have older students select videos they want to watch (or you can assign them), and have the students respond.

Some of these videos would make the perfect starting point for an inquiry-based learning project. One of the final project choices could be to have students use the "How to 'Do' a TED Talk" advice to create their own video about their topic of inquiry. Share them using a tool such as SchoolTube reviewed here.

This excellent site consists of ideas for projects to use in Math fairs; however, there are many other uses for the ideas presented on this site. Titles and subjects such as Juice Box Geometry, Play-Doh Math, and more, are intriguing and sure to capture students' interest. Topics include geometry, estimation, measurement, and probability. Each project contains detailed directions including background knowledge required, materials, and variations to try. General grade level suggestions are also provided (for grades 1-10.) One activity includes a video to help understand the directions. Perhaps most interesting is the section at the end of each project that is composed of links to careers in mathematics that tie-in to the activities.

tag(s): estimation (46), experiments (73), probability (131)

In the Classroom

Choose a project to use as a center activity to complement current units being taught. Assign gifted students a project and then challenge them to share their findings with other classmates. Assign a project as homework or for extra credit. Allow students to videotape and present their project to the class then share on your website or class blog (with parental permission of course). Use a tool such as SchoolTube reviewed here or Prezi reviewed herefor students to present their findings to the classs.

This online countdown timer is meant to be as easy to use as a regular kitchen timer. It is equally simple: all you do is rotate the dial and point the red arrow at the desired number. It can take just one click - just grab the green dot that will appear to help you out and move it around. You will notice that the counter is updated every time you move the dial to make things even more clear. There are two ways to start the countdown - Autostart mode - in this case the timer will start working immediately after you set the time. It mimics the behavior of a real kitchen timer or Manual mode - to get the timer started you will have to press the green start button. Also, just like in a real timer you can change your mind any time and adjust it while it is running. This tool shows the exact amount of seconds in addition to the minutes.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): classroom management (150), counting (120), time (139)

In the Classroom

There are many uses for this practical online tool. Get out your interactive whiteboard or projection screen (or even the classroom desktop computer) and make sure the speakers are turned up. Use this tool for students to practice speeches, or to limit time for a quiz or spelling test. Shrink the stopwatch window in the corner of your interactive whiteboard as you time different teams completing a drag-and-drop challenge. The countdown feature could also be used for timing the rotations from center to center. You can even use the timer for reading fluency exercises or physical education warm-ups! A clever classroom management tool would be to start the visible count-down on your computer screen when you want the class to settle down for directions or to transition to the next subject. Students may even want to use this tool for themselves. Kindergarten students can practice counting along with the watch!

Use a digital recorder, camcorder, or your computer to record the audio. Download a brochure or bookmark to remember the links for creating the DIY Podcast. Click on the links along the right side of the page for great resources such as the DIY Podcast Blog for some great ideas. Several examples along the side include creating a fitness podcast, lab safety, Newton's Laws, Rocket Science, and Solar Arrays.

tag(s): podcasts (55), scientists (70), space (218)

In the Classroom

Provide example topics to your class once they have tried this site, and let them go! Podcasts can be used in any subject area. In math, have students "teach" the class a new skill via podcast. Rather than a traditional book report, have students create a podcast highlighting the main character, plot, conflict, or storyline or a book. In current events, have cooperative learning groups create a podcast debating a current area of dispute. You could record your assignments or directions; you can record story time or a reading excerpt for younger ones to listen to at a computer center AND from home! Have better readers record selected passages for your non-readers (perhaps older buddies). Launch a service project for your fifth or sixth graders to record stories for the kindergarten to use in their reading and listening center. Have your Shakespeare students record a soliloquy! Write and record a poem for Father's or Mother's Day (or other special events) and send the URL as a gift to that special person. Create great podcasts that can be shared on your wiki site, or blog!

In the Classroom

Keep motivation going by listing the little steps that students have achieved towards a bigger goal. Email reminders offer a little nudge gently and with humor when no steps have been taken toward the goal. Boost motivation by going back through the calendar to see all the work that you have finished instead of just focusing on what has not been completed. Use this resource to help students keep track of the baby steps towards the completion of larger projects or goals. Be sure to identify the little steps that need to be completed in order to complete the actual project or goal. Learning support and gifted students alike can benefit from this organizational tool for time management. Let them try this tool to motivate themselves.

EnerCities is an educational interactive about energy, co-funded by the European Commission. This activity is about energy sources and the balance between people, planet, and profit. The goal of the activity is to create and expand virtual cities dealing with pollution, energy shortages, renewable energy. etc. And then you attempt to create a metropolis that stands the test of time. You can sign up if you wish to record high scores, but otherwise sign up isn't necessary. A small download of Unity WebPlayer is required to play the game (free).

tag(s): data (152), energy (202), environment (318), planets (127), pollution (67)

In the Classroom

You may need to request installation of the Unity player if your schools computer prevent downloads. Try the activity at home to decide whether you want to use it in class. Share the site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. If individual computers are available, have students work with a partner. Ask students to write about the effects of various decisions they make on the environment and their city. Provide the link to students to create individual games to compare/contrast effects of game decisions. Create a class wiki to discuss the effects of game decisions. Not familiar with wikis? Check out the TeachersFirst Wiki Walk-Through. Math teachers can have students create charts and graphs comparing data from different decisions within each game. Have students use a site such as Daytum reviewed here to analyze the data.

In the link, "Math Doodling," are several videos on doodling in the math classroom sure to entertain Math teachers and students alike. Each video also includes a written transcript. Titles include Stop-Motion Silly Band Fight, Sick Number Games, Snakes + Graphs, Stars, Binary Trees, and others. Be sure to also check out the link to Mathematical Food which contains demonstrations of slicing apples into Platonic Solids, slicing a cubic apple to find a regular hexagon, and how to arrange candy corn into Sierpinski's Triangle. Another wonderful resource is the link on balloons. Directions for making tetrahedrons, icosahedrons, and other shapes are all included.

tag(s): geometric shapes (165), humor (15)

In the Classroom

This site is perfect for a Math fun day! Share the video clips on your interactive whiteboard or projector or set them up as stations on laptops. After catching students doodling during Math class, show one of the doodling videos to show students how their doodles can really be productive! Your visual learners will love it. Have fun with balloons creating shapes demonstrated on the balloon page. Challenge students to create the shapes after being shown a picture -- but before seeing directions. Use some of the topics when researching ideas for Math Fairs or Math Nights at school. Provide this link for student to explore outside of the classroom. Even girls may find they like math presented in such humorous ways.

The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view that at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid reviewed here to download the videos from YouTube.

This site offers a series of online, interactive math courses for middle-school students. Although a majority of the site contains lessons to be purchased, there is free material available that would make this a valuable resource for classrooms. Several lessons are available in geometry and shape basics. Each lesson contains an introduction, explanation of the topic, questions to correspond with the material presented, a summary of information provided, then follow-up review questions. The real-life examples make geometry much easier to digest. At the time of this review there were ten free examples. Some of the topics include Ratio and Scale, Bearings, Working with Angles, Regular Polygons, and more.

tag(s): geometric shapes (165), test prep (96)

In the Classroom

Provide a link on classroom computers or in the computer lab for students to review this material at the end of your geometry unit. Differentiate for students by providing this link to students struggling with these geometry topics. Put the link on your class website. Use the site as an example; then challenge students to create their own activities on different geometry concepts for classmates to use for review. Have students make a multimedia presentation using one of the many TeachersFirst Edge tools reviewed here.

In the Classroom

Build student literacy skills, reinforce what students are learning about math, and help students build the important reading strategy of connecting what they read to prior (classroom!) knowledge. Share this link on your class web page or wiki so students can select independent reading books to accompany your unit on everyday math. Don't forget to share the list with the school and local libraries so they can bring in some of the books on interlibrary loan. CurriConnects are a great help for teachers who have lost school library/media specialists due to budget cuts.

Solve and share solutions to the U.S. budget crisis with this interactive site from the New York Times. The goal is to close the projected budget gaps for both 2015 and 2030 by making cuts or eliminating programs currently offered by the federal government. As each item is chosen, graphs are updated demonstrating how close you are to closing the gap. Once you have closed the gap for both years a message lets you know how your plan can be shared via twitter or with a link specific with your choices. There is a printable PDF version which is perfect for classroom use.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): branches of government (50), charts and graphs (195), critical thinking (112), financial literacy (80), foreign policy (16), logic (239)

Ask students to complete the PDF version offered on the site. After completion, allow students to share their thoughts via classroom discussion and journals.

This site contains 38 weeks of Geometry lessons provided in several formats to be easily used with interactive whiteboards. Dan Meyer is well known for his mathematics teaching methods and much of the material is hands-on, problem-based activities appropriate for any classroom. Lessons are in slide format and can be downloaded in Keynote (Mac) or PowerPoint (Windows). In addition, each week's lessons can be downloaded as a PDF. Each lesson contains slide notes for the teacher and weekly handouts are available for use. Textbook assignments reference Discovering Geometry; however, these materials can be used with any textbook or materials. Each week's lessons are also tagged making it easy to find other similar content within the site.
