MathFlix is a resource of over 1000 QuickTime videos sorted by topic. The site also includes over 400 downloadable worksheets that reinforce concepts and provide additional practice. The videos themselves are hosted at many different locations on the web, but this index makes it easy to find them by math topic. Enter the site by choosing either the "I am a teacher" or "I am a student" icon. The teacher link lists topics by standards and content within each standard. Choose from Number & Operations, Algebra, Technology, and more. Each of these links leads to further subcategories listing video titles to view. The student link leads to clickable images or words, including topic and subcategory. Choose one of these links to go directly to the list of videos available for that topic. Be sure not to miss the links at the bottom of the page. They aren't quite as obvious as information for the videos; however, they include additional information relating to Common Core, assessment, and curriculum support.

tag(s): area (66), charts and graphs (195), decimals (133), estimation (46), fractions (239), inequalities (29), logic (235), numbers (204), patterns (85), percent (82), perimeter (32), polls and surveys (48), probability (130), problem solving (272), statistics (122), symmetry (55), variables (22), whole numbers (16)

The Membean Word Map displays all the synonyms and closely related words for any word you enter. Clicking on a synonym for the word will bring up a word map for that synonym, but your original search word will remain in the box at the top. What a fantastic way to look up a word that is unfamiliar to you or find alternatives. See words via relationships instead of in isolation.

tag(s): dictionaries (56), vocabulary development (126)

In the Classroom

Project this word map page using your interactive whiteboard and projector, and type in a word. Show students how easy it is to examine the different synonyms and their meanings used to help them understand the original word. What an easy way show students the different nuances and connotations of the meanings, and that not all synonyms fit in a specific sentence. You may want to post this page on your website or wiki and bookmark it on the classroom computers for parent and student use.

A Vialogue is an online video with a group discussion feature. Upload a video of your own, from YouTube or one of the public videos available on Vialogue. Define the purpose of the Vialogue, provide some discussion questions, and click create to finish. Settings are easy to manage, including adding participants, managers, and making videos public or private. View comments with a time stamp connected to the section of the video discussed. Register using email and a unique user name.

tag(s): chat (51), video (254)

In the Classroom

If you don't feel comfortable creating your own Vialogue, use the explore feature of the site to view Vialogues previously created by others. Use for teaching a concept with students viewing portions of videos and chatting content and main points with each other. Use for reviewing materials for exams or to prepare for project creation. Set up a snow day or evening video viewing time and URL to watch and discuss videos together with the teacher for extra help or enrichment. As an online back to school night, share a video at a specified time and invite parents to join you and chat their questions. Offer video/chat how-to sessions for major projects, such as science fair or other independent work. Enhance video instructions for any major assignment by scheduling a watch together session. Use with Khan Academy videos for math class. World language teachers could challenge students to chat new dialogue in their new language. Special ed teachers can create Vialogues with prompts to help students focus on key concepts in a video.

These writing prompts are not as boring as the title sounds. Luke Neff has put together images and prompts that will truly inspire you and make you think. There are 57 pages full of creative, interesting ideas to explore. Click archive in the upper right to see a page of thumbnails of writing prompts by month. This allows you to view more prompts in less time.

tag(s): creative writing (166), expository writing (44), persuasive writing (55), writers workshop (31), writing (359), writing prompts (92)

In the Classroom

These prompts are perfect for writing in journals as quick writes or having your students develop into a full story or essay. There are plenty of unusual ideas to get even the most reluctant writer moving. Once completed, have students submit their story to the class using MixedInk reviewed here. The class can then collaborate by proof reading and suggesting ideas for others' stories. Just because these are "writing" prompts does not mean you can't use them for ESL/ELL or speech/language students to prompt them to TALK and use oral language. World language teachers can also use these to promote conversation/oral language. To get started, project one in class; after that make the link available on your class web page.

This short article contains all the information you need to get started using QR codes in the classroom. The blog post begins with reasons to use QR codes and moves on to three parts: getting ready to use QR codes, teaching students to use the codes, and ideas for using codes in the classroom. One notable section explains common problems encountered using QR codes; this is an excellent resource to look through if you have difficulty at any time. Be sure to read the comments at the bottom of the post for some additional ideas for using QR codes in the classroom.

tag(s): qr codes (21)

In the Classroom

QR codes are a sure-fire motivator for any class equipped with their own smart phones or school iTouches/iPads. Choose one of the ideas suggested in the article as a starting point for using QR codes in your classroom; then try additional ideas a little at a time. Share the article with other teachers and split up the ideas for each to become an "expert" in one of the strategies, share your experiences as you learn together.

Find free, copyright-safe pictures of places, people, animals, and more. Ookaboo is a resource containing over a million images. All images are in public domain or under creative commons, making them free and available for anyone to use (with credit). As the site explains, pictures are free to use within the law, and Ookaboo offers an excellent description on the help page about how legally to use the pictures. Search for images using the search box or by using links to countries, people, or technological artifacts. Download easily with the download button. One goal of Ookaboo is to include images suitable in an educational setting; however, as with any other image site, there is a possibility of inappropriate content.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): images (266), news (261), photography (160)

In the Classroom

Include a link to this site for students when preparing for presentations. Look for photos of any recent news event, even events obscure enough not to be included in American newspapers. Share an image or gallery of images on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) in a world language class. Discuss them in the language the students are learning. Link to certain galleries from your class web page or student presentations to show examples of concepts and life in other places. Share this site on your class web page for students to access easily during research projects. Use the photos as writing prompts in current events or writing classes. Learn about the culture and news in far off places. Create a visual current events "quiz" by displaying a gallery of images and asking students to explain the background of the story. Speech or ESL/ELL teachers can also share images to prompt students to talk about or describe them. Let the students select the image they wish to discuss!

Help clean up the beach in this game by recycling "trash" (nouns or verbs) into the correct containers. Each of the two leveled games shows ten items and the word for it. Drag the item into either the noun or verb trash can. Replay the same level, or try a different level for a new game. If you have a successful "dump," the result is a colorful song reward. An error results in a slightly different sound, but the focus of the site is decidedly positive, rewarding students for what they do correctly.

tag(s): grammar (216), grammar review (37), parts of speech (68)

In the Classroom

This activity would work well for individual or pairs of students in a lab or on as a center to help students review the differences between nouns and verbs.

Create an online study group with Dweeber. Though Dweeber has the social network look, it targets study groups, classmates, book groups, and all other types of educational groups to help each other with academics. Created with young people in mind, Dweeber has an ultra-cool look, and strict, upfront safety precautions. There are several components that make Dweeber unique. Their S.M.A.R.T. profile (stands for Successes, Mind Patterns, Attractions and Interests, Resources, and Thinking Talents) helps you to get to know how you and your friends learn best. My Sites/Top Sites is where you can store the sites that help you learn and study and is a place for you to vote on the best websites in the entire Dweeber network. Dweeber lists the sites that users have rated the highest. Up to eight people at a time can engage in a real-time study session using the collaborative whiteboard.

tag(s): homework (44), learning styles (19), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

Teachers and students create your own accounts. Then invite each student as friend. Go to the "My Dweebs" tab on the top, and click "New team" in the upper right corner. Create teams of any size. Engage student groups in discussions about current events, independent reading, literature, and more. Set up teams for students to work on projects or literature circles. Use the space as a forum to work out tasks and scheduling. Use the chat area for students to discuss the current novel they are reading or to ask peers for clarification about assignments. Students can brainstorm ideas for their group presentations or help each other work out math problems using the real-time collaborative whiteboard. Your students will likely suggest additional ways to use this tool from their world.

EPub Bud is a multifaceted site where you can create and share your writing, read ebooks published by others, participate in activities, and join or create groups. You can read and create ebooks for and on any device. EPub Bud uses the standard .epub file format. Go to the page titled "How To Read These ePub eBooks" to see all the different readers and browsers and recommendations for how to read the ebooks. This is perfect for those with more than one device requiring different formats or when sharing eBook resources with others. Use many formats such as doc, PDF, HTML, and more to convert. Also, see their Upload/Convert page. ePub Bud, developed for children's books, also has adult books. You can learn to create books that include audio, too.

In the Classroom

What better way to publish for an authentic audience than to have your student's short stories, research, children's books, and novels published here? Use for students to "publish" their own works easily. Write and collaborate using Google Docs, download the document, and then convert using this tool. Use in elementary reading to make instant ebooks from their own writing or from vocabulary words in upcoming units. Use for whole-class collaboration and create a book to share on eBook readers. The books you or your students create can also include audio and video. Offer this site to students who use digital devices to read. You can use this resource to convert eBooks for sharing in a class using a variety of devices. Since there are also adult books on ePub Bud, you will want to supervise any downloading of books by students to read in your classroom. ESL/ELL and learning support students may benefit from being able to hear or see books in a different way. Use these texts in language arts to analyze or manipulate on your interactive whiteboard to teach reading comprehension skills, parts of speech, transition words, vocabulary study, and writing style. Teacher librarians can encourage students to share student-written eBooks or book reviews in the school media center on almost any type of device.

Discover resources and ideas for using comics in the classroom. The simplicity here might be a good thing, so do not be fooled into thinking this site is not worth your time. Marek Bennett moved this site from an older Wordpress blog in March, 2014, but much of the older blog (and its great posts) remain as an archive, so explore BOTH. Click on any of the comic images to view posters, books, and tips for using comics in the classroom. Take the time to explore and view each of the links available. Be sure to check out the information about comics and multiple intelligences. Take time to explore other areas of the blog for more information on creating and using comics. There is information about paid workshops, but the site has much to offer without spending a cent.

tag(s): comics and cartoons (74), digital storytelling (144), stories and storytelling (33)

In the Classroom

Be sure to check out Teachers First's Comics Resources for many other ideas and tools for using comics in the classroom. Comics are great for telling the "story" of any curriculum concept, such as insect life cycles or biographies. They are also very creative for using with languages, ESL/ELL, gifted, and learning resource students for writing.

Print polyhedra shapes for students to create; then use them to develop a math writing activity to display on a bulletin board. Make holiday math decorations or student-made review manipulatives (for any subject) using the printables. Have them write a question on each face and "roll" the polyhedron to respond to the questions. Art teachers can use the printables for many craft projects.

You can create a Q&A page about a video that only you and the people you choose can access. You can moderate the conversation to get additional controls and deeper insight into what's happening. To begin, search for any YouTube or Vimeo video, or put in the URL of a video you want to use. Then, choose to make a public or private question and answer session. The video will appear framed on the page, and you just need to add a few questions to get things started. Type these into the field on the top left of your screen. If you play through the video and pause at certain moments, the question will appear at that point in the video. Share the video by clicking on 'Share this page." This will give you a URL that you can share with others. If you click on 'Moderate Q&A on this video' at the bottom of the page, you can create playlists, moderate submissions to the Q&A, and even get an embed code to add it to other materials.

Note that the general public can write and answer PUBLIC Q/A sessions, so preview for appropriateness before sharing with others. If you create a private Q/A you can avoid this problem.

tag(s): video (254)

In the Classroom

Begin by searching for pre-existing public videos that already have questions. Preview and share these with students as you begin a unit or for review. Create your own videos for students to use for review or have students generate questions for a video you choose. Assign videos for students to view at home, in the computer lab, or on laptops. You can even have students post their questions and responses within the video. Learning Support teachers could have students write questions and test each other using videos to reinforce topics they are studying without using loads of reading material.

Explore this huge collection of Youtube videos on various aspects of teaching the English language to international students. Real teachers narrate the videos which include three levels and many subject areas. Included are the normal topics like speaking and pronunciation, grammar, writing, and vocabulary, as well as other helpful topics like test prep, tips, expressions, and slang. Most have a followup quiz to see how well you understand the lesson concepts. The videos are not particularly dynamic, mostly just views of a teacher standing and explaining. Topics include material appropriate for adult learners, such as pregnancy and having a baby. K-12 teachers will wan to select for their students.

In the Classroom

Use video from this collection to introduce a topic or to do a quick review. Students recently mainstreamed from ESL/ELL into the traditional English or language arts classroom or students who need information presented several times in different ways may benefit from a short video lesson. Have students view lessons then create their own grammar lesson video. Share the videos on a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here.

Drag words to create sentences, poems, and more on this easy to use, online "refrigerator." Need to use a word more than once? No problem -- just click on the word and press your "d" key to create a duplicate. Words can also be sorted by the color of the background for nouns, verbs, and other parts of speech. Many basic sight words are included.

tag(s): parts of speech (68), poetry (228), sight words (37)

In the Classroom

This site is terrific for use on interactive whiteboards. Challenge students to create entertaining sentences using as many different colored backgrounds as possible. Then ask them to identify the parts of speech. See how long it takes them to notice that all nouns are the same color! This is an excellent resource to share during Poetry Month. Why not make a poetry center on your interactive whiteboard for students to work with a partner? For create-your-own magnetic poetry at a higher level, try Triptico's free, downloadable software, reviewed here.
