Links within items in your feed offer options to share by email or on Twitter and other social networking sites. Additional options allow you to change the view of feeds by title, magazine, or cards. Fine-tune your feed by adding filters to hide unwanted topics or keywords, or select items to save for reading at a later time.

For example, when teaching about climate change and conservation, create a feed to share with students containing information from a variety of sources. Ask students to use this information during their research to learn about this topic from a broader viewpoint. As you and your students find articles of importance, save them within a Wakelet, reviewed here. Use Wakelet to create different collections based on specific topics. As a final project, ask students to share their learning by creating a Wakelet collection that includes articles found on Feedly along with their final research presentation.

Follow the prompts to add a title and data values. Add data as a percentage or numerical values then customize your GIF by selecting from different color options. When finished, save as an HQ (high quality) or LQ (low quality) GIF. Once created, save the GIF to your computer or share using the provided link.

tag(s): data (160), images (276)

In the Classroom

This tool provides you and your students an excellent resource for engagingly sharing data. Use the Data GIF Maker to create a visual display when collecting data. For example, begin using this tool by polling your class to find out their favorite type of pizza and then enter the data to create a GIF. Use the same data in all three included formats to compare and contrast how the information looks based on the type of chart used. Take this same information and have students calculate the percentages and create GIFs to compare and contrast this information with your original images. Once you and your students are familiar with how to use this site to create GIFs, use it to enhance student learning by including GIFs within your presentations for students to evaluate and to visualize any data. Create GIFs to document student reading logs, the amount of time spent on homework, or time spent on community service. Have students include GIFs when annotating images using ThingLink, reviewed here, or within presentations created with tools such as Sway, reviewed here.

In the Classroom

Share an animated GIF to get student's attention! A cat reading a book is one way to begin reading time! Show any science concept a student should look at several times to see every aspect of the event, better yet, let students create an animated GIF using their own pictures to demonstrate the concept or show the steps of an experiment. Do you want to reveal portions of a video outlining the travels of historical expeditions, addition of the states to the US, or any other historical event captured in a video? Use a looping animated GIF! Every subject could use one of these GIFs to generate interest in a class activity or new content.

Can you solve the Rubik's Cube? This campaign is based on the goal of teaching 8-18-year-olds how to solve the Rubik's Cube and gain a sense of accomplishment and pride. Guides share the secrets to solving the cubes in 2X2, 3X3, and 4X4 formats. In addition, the site contains guides for lesser-known versions of the Rubik's Cube. The Educator's Guides include lessons aligned to Common Core Standards as well as STEM/STEAM Standards. Use the information on the site to borrow a class set of Rubik's Cubes for free through their Cube Lending Program, just pay return shipping.

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the free lessons and classroom lending program to bring Rubik's Cube problem-solving activities into your classroom. This resource may be the perfect solution for students who struggle academically to achieve success uniquely. Prepare students for the cubes' arrival by brainstorming ideas on how to solve cubes (keep in mind there are different versions). Find a YouTube video with master Rubik's Cube solvers to promote interest in the activities. When the cubes arrive, use them as a problem-solving center by providing the solution guides for students to follow. As students become proficient in solving the puzzle, enhance their learning by asking them to use a video explainer tool like Biteable, reviewed here, to share their tips and successes. Challenge students to share their cube-solving speed by posting a chart for each of them to add their fastest times.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

In the Classroom

Consider using videos in your classroom in a variety of ways. Upload your slide presentations and add audio to create flipped and blended learning experiences for your students. Ask students to create videos as an alternative to book reports or written presentations. Share videos on your class website for students to access when away from the classroom. As you ask students to create videos, use a bookmarking site such as Padlet, reviewed here, to share and organize information for students to use when researching. Include Adobe Spark Videos as part of a larger presentation using Book Creator, reviewed here. Embed your video along with images, text, drawings, and other media into your digital book creation. Book Creator is a Chrome app.
