If you use Dropbox or Box to collect student work, don't miss this site! Use this tool to move files out of Dropbox or Box and into a different or private folder for grading. This is especially useful if you have a "Turn In" folder where students place completed assignments. Use to sort pictures or videos easily and make the organization of Dropbox easy and automatic. Login easily with your Dropbox account. Create "rules" in this tool that are automatically used in your Dropbox account to move your files around to folders you designate. Files and folders are checked against these rules frequently to keep your Dropbox or Box account neat and tidy.

tag(s): images (283), video (275), writing (363)

#### In the Classroom

Use to manage pictures or videos taken in the classroom and uploaded to Dropbox. If you are using Dropbox in your class, set up this site at the beginning of the year to save you time! Create a rule that moves them all into the same folder (or folders) for easy organization and location of files later. Assignments that are turned in can be moved by a rule you create to go to a private folder that can be accessed later for grading.

Here is the direct link to share this resource review. Feel free to copy and paste this URL into an email or place it on your web page or blog so others can read this TeachersFirst review:

tag(s): blogs (84), portfolios (30), social networking (109)

#### In the Classroom

Use this site for students to post simple projects such as stories, poems, and art projects. This is a simple tool to create individual portfolios, too. In lower grades, create a page together as a class on a projector or whiteboard. Collect a master list of the links to student pages on your classroom website, wiki, or blog for easy access. If students create pages, be sure to check with your district's policy on student use of email as well as publishing of student work. You may want to use a single class account so you have control. Create websites for many projects: back to school introductions, any subject/topic, research projects, book reports... the possibilities go on and on! Create a handy page to share resources and information during field trips or outside activities. If you assign gifted students (age 13+) to do alternate projects beyond the regular curriculum, this may be one of the tools they like to use. You could use a teacher account so students do not have to create a login. This would also be a useful tool for middle and high school gifted students to create an online portfolio. Start by having them create a real world presence to publish links and images of their best work, especially projects that take on a life of their own long after the assignment ends. This is for students to present their best face to the public. Encourage them to take ownership of it.

Visit the resources tab on the TARC site to access model rocketry resources for educators. Links take you to NASA resources and STEM lessons on rocketry. Find some rocketry resources that are out of this world! Some of the video clips are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Tube Offline, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): aviation (35), motion (70), nasa (37), rockets (17), STEM (190)

StoryToolz offers many different tools for authors: story generators, word count meters, a readability analysis, a random conflict generator, a title generator, a cliche buster, and more. Choose any of the topics to begin. Story generators offer suggestions for conflict within a story or half a title. Choose from random title beginnings and endings to generate your title. Don't miss the Readability area: paste up to 5K of text in the box to check the readability of any source. Registration isn't required; however, it offers the opportunity for additional resources within the word count meter section and a larger portion of text for analyzing in the readability section.

tag(s): creative writing (169), readability (7), stories and storytelling (32)

#### In the Classroom

Share StoryToolz with students in your writing class to generate ideas for stories and possible centers of conflict to map out new tale. Use the readability section with any writing to determine appropriateness for use with students. Have students paste their writing in the readability section to determine if their writing is at an appropriate grade level or to note information such as words per sentence or use of various parts of speech. Paste into the cliche buster to point out ho-hum wording and overused expressions. Suddenly, students may begin to write more complex sentences or use more vivid language. Be sure to include a link to this site on your class webpage and classroom computers for use throughout the year. The readability portion of the site is a great resource for ESL/ELL and Special Education teachers to help determine appropriateness of reading materials.

Save, organize, and share the web with Keeeb. Similar to Pinterest, reviewed here, Keeeb is a virtual pinboard for anything on the web. Create an account then create topic pages for your collections. Group, arrange, comment, and organize as you prefer. Make pages private or public and share as desired. The ability to make some boards private distinguishes this from similar tools. Although this site is in English, the introduction video is in German. However, you can follow the graphics to easily understand what is happening. The video is hosted on YouTube. If your school blocks YouTube, you may want to view the video at home. It probably would not be useful to share the video with students.

tag(s): bookmarks (68), organizational skills (122), social networking (109)

#### In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource for finding and organizing websites for classroom use. In lower grades, use to organize sites visually for non-readers. Create your own Keeebs for organizing classroom resources found on the web. Share your Keeebs with students and parents by putting the link on your class website. Challenge your older students to curate their own boards as a research project. Follow other Keeeb users with similar interests as a resource for finding new and interesting websites.

Choose from a variety of themes in the template gallery. Add pages for blogs and online forums. Viewing on mobile and desktop computers is supported. The free version includes use of the mobile site (with ads) and storage for up to 40 MB and up to 5 items in an online store.

tag(s): blogs (84), social networking (109)

#### In the Classroom

Possible uses are only limited by your imagination! Create your own website for parents and students where they can stay updated about what is happening in your classroom. Include links to where students can submit their assignments, your contact information, and anything else you might want to put on your website. There is a free blogging tool for writing assignments, reflection, or reading journals. Have everything you need on one website! Find more specific blog ideas in TeachersFirst's Blog Basics for the Classroom.

Try using Web for: "visual essays;" digital biodiversity logs (with digital pictures students take); online literary magazines; or personal reflections in images and text; research project presentations. Create comparisons of online content, such as political candidates' sites or content sites used in research (compared for bias); science sites documenting experiments or illustrating concepts, such as the water cycle; "Visual" lab reports. Have students create digital scrapbooks using images from the public domain and video and audio clips from a time in history - - such as the Roaring Twenties; Local history interactive stories or Visual interpretations of major concepts, such as a "visual" U.S. Constitution. Imagine building your own online library of raw materials for your students to create their own "web pages" as a new way of assessing understanding: you provide the digital pictures, and they sequence, caption, and write about them (younger students) or you provide the steps in a project as a template, and they insert the actual content of their own.

After a first project where you provide "building blocks," the sky is the limit on what they can do. Even the very young can make suggestions as you "create" a whole-class product together using an interactive whiteboard or projector. Consider making a new project for each unit you teach so students can "recap" long after the unit ends. Use as an online portfolio for high schools students to include with college applications.

SchoolRack is a free service for creating a classroom website or blog. Designed with schools in mind, its features include options for managing student and parent groups, discussion boards, and mailing lists. Post, collect, and report grades using site features. Use the password protection feature to protect privacy in any or all portions of your site. Use the Quick Start Guide to set your site up easily and quickly. The free account allows for 5 pages, 100 MB of storage, 1 class, 1 mailing list, and unlimited discussion topics. Although we recommend this site for all grades, in elementary school an adult would need to be in charge of the "creating" part. The limits to free pages most likely mean its use for a class web page is best suited for elementary teachers who have only one class.

tag(s): blogs (84), social networking (109)

#### In the Classroom

Use SchoolRack to keep parents and students updated with class information. Create, collect, and post assignments using features on the site. Try using SchoolRack for student created "visual essays;" digital biodiversity logs (with digital pictures students take); online literary magazines; personal reflections in images and text; research project presentations; comparisons of online content, such as political candidates' sites or content sites used in research (compared for bias). Use this tool to make for science sites documenting experiments or illustrating concepts, such as the water cycle; "Visual" lab reports; Digital scrapbooks using images from the public domain and video and audio clips from a time in history -- such as the Roaring Twenties; Local history interactive stories; and Visual interpretations of major concepts, such as a "visual" U.S. Constitution.

Create flashcards for your classes or have them make their own. Try using them as an introduction to a concept, again in the practice of the concept, and as a final review. It is a nice three for one creation deal! This would be great for teaching Latin prefixes and suffixes of words to students. Use in science terms, or for standardized test preparation. Try having students create flashcards and share with each other to quiz themselves within their own groups. Teach students in higher grades how to create flash cards with multiple blanks to challenge their brain to remember more pieces of the puzzle. Show them how to carefully read through their classroom notes and underline the most important word or words in a sentence. Then have them leave out the most important words for their flashcards. Learning support teachers might want to have small groups create cards together to review before tests. Have students create flashcard sets to "test" classmates on what they "teach" in oral reports. Be sure to check the data base for already created sets to save you time making them yourself!
