ell students can type in native language and voki will translate and speak for the rest of us to understand, or the other way around
just found out voki can do this so only have my regular vokis to share: http://kidsteach.wiki.hoover.k12.al.us/Book+Review+Vokis+2010-2011
English/Italian language & cultural exchange
Brand new , still under construction, in development
Web 2.0 separated into Bloom’s Taxonomy
A tool for each level of Bloom’s Taxonomy
google apps (sites)
students create their own website
Collaborative editing of documents, presentations, drawings
Online, media-interactive poster
Online bookmark storage
@MizzMattie teachers can create a list of websites for Ss to use
Students can vote in a poll via cell phone
@MizzMattie Self-explanatory http://www.polleverywhere.com/
Students can make voice recordings up to about 3 min. for projects
brainstorming for prewriting/schema examining
image editing, audio recording, music making, vector marking, color editing
(many different tools)
presentations like Prezi but easier to make
Podcast hosting and syndication
Google Art Project
Virtual tours of museums/artwork
Online file storage; with dropitto.me students can submit work to your Dropbox.
@elirmontes: use to share folders with students - much easier than email to distribute language lab recordings
Spore Creature Creator- free trial edition Free Download from Spore.com
We’ve used for creative writing, 2nd language learning, genetics, animal adaptations, habitats
virtual gallery walks, collaboration & so much more
similar to wordle, but can make word cloud into a specific shape
Online Grading and Peer Review, and Plagiarism checking. Portfolios -- not often used feature
Peer Review tool lets students engage with each other’s papers and add comments and answer Q’s I pose. GradeMark saves me time grading too.
online sticky note collaboration
Graphic organizer that allows all sorts of customization of shapes, bringing in images, etc.
Have used for lots of reasons. Allows 25 free sheets. Can use fake email to sign-up.
creative writing as well as reading the published stories of other storybirders around the world.
students can collaborate with each other on stories, leave quality comments for others
a facebook like page for your class. Use as a launching pad for online activities.
record your voice online.
Good for language classes.
(@elirmontes: ¿How is this different from audioboo?)
students can create wordclouds
paste an entire paragraph into wordle; student checks to see if main idea is the MAIN idea - 1st step in revision
@elirmontes: great for when students collaborate on a Google Doc, copy the doc and paste into the wordle box, then discuss why which words (the bigger ones) were used most.
Comment on, edit, and fill out PDFs, Word documents, images and more. Highlight text and add comments using the free online document annotator.
@ronhoutman - This is a great way to provide key points of a document and allow your students to review and comment on them. You can embed the docs in your LMS as well.
ebook creator -- you can add voice, create original art (paint like functionality), upload photos/images
*Could use at any level but ideal for elementary and low middle
embeddable, emailable, linkable
online recorder which does not need a login. You can use it to record audio and video. You can record up to 60 minutes and can have unlimited simultaneous logins (tested 20 at the same time w/ 1 account)
For audio recording, editing and mixing.
@EstherBoucher - Awesome for language classes, very simple to use.
used for class projects in Anatomy and Chemistry (tho anatomy’s are better; Chem’s readjusting); hoping to work with Soc Stud teachers to do collaborative proj
the intro llama is funny, but free way to create a voiceover
Lots of tools to pick from by categories
@lenva Lenva Shearing
A standards-based gradebook (not free)
Great for all levels, allows students to animate characters, explain any concept
give your photos a voice!!
great site for students to create a glog (graphic blog) on topics.
Use the template system to replace handouts. I create study guides and post them as templates.
Comprehensive list and description of numerous tools
There are ideas for every student need, suggested uses, and desired outcomes to promote thinking. This is one of my go-to’s for Web 2.0 ideas
@nesticos ~ this wiki was curated by Anne Bairde from Victoria, Australia
Our Class Wiki List of Cool Tools to choose from for projects
This is the list of links of tools students in my class go to when doing project work or class activities
@nesticos ~ from our Principles of Democracy course
Students use this to bring stories or reports to life via cartoon animation movies
this conversation was collaborative with a student in another school. They outsourced portions and pieced it together
YouTube, iMovie (although not web-based)
Make videos about important political/democratic issues for an interest group project.
Jing from Techsmith--free download
Screen captures, capture pictures, screencasting, and more
So easy to use to create screen tutorials and capture images from pdf’s and more
Create online courses and learning communities for distance education (or to complement classroom education). Embed content from other Web tools.
