Try sharing this resource with students when they are creating podcasts, slideshows, and other media projects. This site would also be great for performance groups such as drama clubs or musicals that need background music. Use background music for poetry readings during poetry month. Make sure students realize that "royalty-free" does not dismiss the need to give proper credit for their source!

Gooru is a free, online learning management system for classrooms. Use their Learning Navigator system to assess and assign content based on student knowledge. The Learning Navigator provides information on student knowledge then provides a course of learning. Content is continually adjusted and monitored to match student growth and engagement. Use your teacher dashboard to assign and customize learning using Gooru's content. Content is provided for math levels from preK through calculus, English/Language Arts from preK through 10th grade, and middle and high school science and social studies. Students engage with assigned materials using the code generated when adding content.

In the Classroom

Use Gooru to differentiate instruction based on students' current performance. Many students are motivated to learn at their own pace using online tools, and Gooru is an option providing lessons in a different format than currently available. If not using Gooru whole -class, it provides many options for helping and enhancing learning for individual students, use for homework, or as a temporary option for providing instruction to home-bound students. Enhance classsroom technology and provide additional support to student learning by asking them to use Dropr, reviewed here, to build a digital portfolio of their learning process. Include images, videos, and written work within the portfolio.

As students research your topic, have them use Wakelet, reviewed here, to bookmark and save their research.

Pindex is Pinterest for educators. In addition to saving and curating resources, educator accounts offer educators the ability to assign boards to students along with quizzes. Create boards then add content by using the + button to add video, links, documents, images, and more. Use the site's search feature to find boards created by other users, then save any desired content to your account. Assign boards to students then track progress under the quiz feature. Students earn "Internet gold" awards as they complete assignments.

In the Classroom

Because Pindex is specifically for educators, this site makes it easier to find and save information for classroom use. Collaborate with other teachers in your building or subject area to create boards with teaching resources. Take advantage of Pindex's quiz feature to create boards for any topic and assess student learning. Use Pindex as part of flipped learning lessons or as a learning center. Extend learning after students complete quizzes using Synth, reviewed here, to have students discuss information shared on the site. Synth is similar to Twitter, but is an audio resource. Have students share a short audio response related to their learning, then Synth threads all student discussions to create a podcast to share.

Share the best of European art, history, and culture through video presentations by Rick Steves, a renowned authority on European travel. This site features over 300 searchable video clips of 3 to 5 minutes in length. Use the search tools to narrow topics by theme, historical eras, or countries. Create an account to save videos to playlists and share with students. You will also find videos for the Middle East. If your school blocks YouTube be sure to look at alternatives for sharing the videos and your playlists on classroom computers. Find an alternative here.

In the Classroom

View the videos as a class on your interactive whiteboard or with a projector to learn about countries or periods studied. Take advantage of the search tool to find videos by themes to provide a comprehensive look at the themes in various parts of Europe. For example, select the Renaissance to view information about this period in France, Italy, Austria, and Portugal to provide a larger context of these events. Create playlists to share with your students for social studies topics. Have students include information from the videos on this site to create a website using Webnode, reviewed here, to share their findings. Ask students to use the templates found on Webnode to enhance their learning style while including images, videos, and their writing. One idea is for students to create a website through the persona of a person living in one of the countries or different a period sharing their way of life. Ask students to modify their learning by creating timelines using Timelinely, reviewed here, to document events from European history. Use Timelinely to include maps, videos, images, and more to create an interactive timeline experience.

Crio is a tool for building interactive, online lessons designed to foster higher-level thinking skills. Use the drag and drop features to start a lesson from scratch or choose from one of three model lessons. Add audio, text, video, and other interactive content to your activity. Crio offers several different options for question responses, including multiple choice and short and extended response. After building your lesson, publish and share with students via social media links, embed, or provide a direct link to the URL. Student work automatically saves during use. Be sure to watch the demo video for an overview of all of Crio's features.

tag(s): assessment (124), Learning Management Systems (20), Teacher Utilities (78)

In the Classroom

Use Crio for planning and distributing lessons to students. Because lessons save automatically to your account, it makes it easy to reproduce and adjust activities for different classes as needed. Consider creating several lessons to use as a "ready to go" bank for days when a sub is in the classroom or when interruptions to your routine require a quick change of plans. Use Crio to create flipped lessons to introduce new units to students or as a wrap-up and review of content. Work together with peers to develop units for any subject.

tag(s): editing (79), images (269), photography (144), preK (282)

In the Classroom

Share with students for use with projects to enhance classroom technology and create and combine images without busy backgrounds. For example, create pictures of presidents, castles, or plants for use with any report or on slides for a presentation. Take pictures of students; then remove the background. Save images for use throughout the year in hall displays, bulletin boards, on reward certificates, etc. Add a background to student images as a story starter on historic events, career presentations, or place them as a character within a novel. Modify classroom technology use by having students use an easy website creator like Carrd, reviewed here, where students can upload their image and share their finished story. Introduce a new unit by creating an image using PhotoScissors to place your class in a foreign land. Share that image on FlipGrid, reviewed here, to use as an anticipatory set and ask students to post a video response sharing their thoughts on where they are going and what they already know about the area.

tag(s): augmented reality (6), coding (77), graphic design (40)

In the Classroom

Get to know ZapWorks through the many robust tutorials and guides found on the site. Share ZapWorks with students interested in design, computer coding, and virtual and augmented reality. Redefine classroom technology by offering students the opportunity to create an augmented reality experience as an alternative to a book report, research project, or multimedia presentation. In science class ask students to create a project demonstrating the water cycle, for literature have students produce their vision of the setting of a book, or use the site to create an animated business card featuring a famous character from history. As students become proficient in using the site, modify classroom technology by asking them to share their expertise with others by creating explainer videos using Biteable, reviewed here. Post these videos on your class website for students to access both at home and at school.
