PastBook is a wonderful site for creating online photo albums or scrapbooks. The tool was originally intended to create memorial books. Now you can create memory books and even choose a year to display. Choose "Start Now," to begin. Add a title, description, and pictures by uploading from your computer or social network accounts. Provide the text to describe images and a date if desired. When ready, choose "Create Your Book" to complete the book process. View finished books online or download for free in PDF format. Invite others to collaborate on your book through social networking links. Privacy settings allow only those with the URL to view your book. This tool is available on the web and iPhone. It will soon be available for any device. Sign-in using your email or FaceBook account. You can invite people via email or SMS.

tag(s): digital storytelling (150), images (269), photography (160), portfolios (29)

In the Classroom

Use a class PastBook account to keep track of the day-to-day happenings in your classroom (especially for younger grades). Consider creating albums of specific events such as field trips, service projects, hands-on activities, field experiences such as watershed studies, and more. Have students create portfolios for art and photography classes. Create a magazine of photos that portray different history and social topics. Set the scenes for novels or stories. Explain a specific science concept (using Creative Commons images AND proper credit). Anywhere photos can be used to showcase achievement or explain a concept, this service would be an excellent resource. Learning support, speech, ESL/ELL, autistic support, or world language teachers can collect images into "magazines" for students to practice/develop speech and vocabulary.

Ducksters is a safe, extensive, educational portal for kids. Find a wide choice of content such as interactives, sports, movies, and music. Begin by choosing a category to explore choices. The study category includes extensive information such as world history, many biographies, science explanations, and information on all continents and many countries. Interactive subjects include math times tables, checkers, and guess the country. There is a TON here to explore.

Raindrop Melody Maker is an interactive music-making activity. Pressing on different colored raindrops creates different pitches sounding like a flute and a piano. Create rhythms and they will repeat. Add several rhythms together to make a masterpiece. Use the metronome to stay with the beat.

tag(s): characterization (16), literature (275), musical instruments (48), sound (100)

In the Classroom

Raindrop Melody Maker brings creativity to every child with instant success. Use the sound recording to create music for a piece of writing or literature. In writing class, use to illustrate the plot of a story showing beginning, building to the climax, excitement, and finish. Use this site with literature to create a melody for each character to aid in analyzing their personalities. Use a deep, repeated pattern for the villain or an easy light pattern for the innocent. Have students create a masterpiece for their written piece. In a unit on sound, have students create a 3D Raindrop Melody Maker with some other real items such as glasses, drums, bells, or rubber bands. Create music in math demonstrating the interaction between sounds, geometry, and fractions. Let the music create shapes using the different tones. On the board, create different shapes and discover the melody they create. Use with fractions to determine the amount of color utilized to create the whole unit. See if equivalent "fractions" sound the same. The possibilities are endless depending upon your students' imagination! Add music to a piece of art to employ another sense to the creation, sound!

Canva presents a simple way to design almost anything with drag and drop technology. Create custom posters, business cards, presentations, badges, flyers, and more using a custom layout or a blank page. Begin by choosing the type of design you want to create. Choose pre-made templates or design your own. Upload images from your computer or your Facebook account. Change your background, add text, and personalize as desired. When complete, choose link and publish to save and download your creation as an image or PDF file or copy the link to share via URL. There is an iPad app (free) available for this tool. Note: you must register (with email and password) before you can access this site.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): graphic design (35), images (269), posters (36), slides (64)

In the Classroom

Create a slideshow, invitations, or photo collages for any classroom presentation. Share what you created on your website or blog for students to review or for students who were absent. In the younger grades, teachers would be the ones creating the project. However, older students could easily create themselves! Have students create their own Canva presentations. Have students use this online tool as they would any presentation tool or image enhancing site. Use this site for research projects about famous people from the past and present. Have cooperative learning groups create presentations about science or math topics. Have students create presentations to "introduce" themselves to the class during the first week of school. Link or embed the introduction presentations on your class wiki and have others guess who they are about. Use this tool with your 1:1 art class for students to practice design principles and techniques. Share student projects with parents and others via URL. Be sure to demonstrate HOW to use this tool on your interactive whiteboard or projector.

"Draw" a flower from the visual text of a single word using this simple Japanese tool. The basic tools are labeled in English. Browse the Gallery to see examples, including this one our editors made using the word "teaching." Click +draw to make your own. Enter a single, short word and choose options such as font and color scheme. Give it a name, and it will be added to the Gallery. There are other sharing options for the designs you make, but many are labeled in Japanese! If you click to open it from the Gallery, you can copy its direct url from your address bar to save as a Favorite or share with others. Turn off autoplay in the Gallery to keep your design on the screen. Roll your mouse over a design (or tap it on a tablet) to make it spin! You can share to Facebook and Pinterest directly. The easiest way to share is by saving the url or by taking a screenshot of your finished design (Printscrn button on Windows or Command+Shift+4 on Mac). You also have the option to actually print. Note that the gallery could have word designs that may be in other languages or possibly be inappropriate for young people. Our editors found nothing objectionable at the time of this review. Preview to be safe. Click the sound on/off option in the footer to turn off the music as you enjoy the site.

tag(s): design (83), graphic design (35), symmetry (55)

In the Classroom

Demonstrate radial symmetry in an art or math class using this tool. As you teach letter shapes in kindergartens, try making a design to help your students see the shape in this colorful format. If you teach about fonts in an art or graphic design class, this tool can spark discussion about the design elements of letter forms. An idea for elementary or middle school teachers: Have students create "flowers" of their own names (or shortened nicknames) as a getting to know you activity during the first week of school. Post the design screenshot images on your class web page or print them to put in the hallway.

Create virtual snowflakes using the simple tools of this Flash-based interactive. Click New Snowflake to access the tools. Be sure to watch the sample snowflake first to understand how to drag the nodes on the starter triangle. Click to add and drag nodes on each line of the triangle. Preview to see your shape replicated and rotated to make a full snowflake using radial symmetry. You can edit it to change how it looks. Add as many nodes as you wish to make more complex designs. Click to name and save your snowflake. You can also print it. Animate the snowflakes to see your creations "falling." Note that "saving" simply puts the snowflake information in the browser cache on your computer and may not actually "save" once you close your browser, depending on the computer settings. "Send to a friend" emails ONLY the website address (not your flake) for your friend to try the snowflake tool.

tag(s): snow (21), symmetry (55), weather (189)

In the Classroom

Explore geometric constructions or simply enjoy some winter fun with this tool. In math, geometry, or art class, explore what happens when a shape is repeated radially. Use this to demonstrate radial symmetry, figure/ground relationships, and the impact of obtuse/acute angles in creating snowflake shapes. Have students create flakes when studying angles. They can screenshot or print them, then write an explanation of why the angles they used created a successful flake. They can even create comparisons of two flakes. With younger students, use the snowflake builder as a writing prompt for a winter story or in lessons on crystals, weather, and more. Save printer ink by taking screenshots (Printscrn button on Windows or ShIft+Command+4 on Mac) to paste the flake images into a slideshow or save as images on your computer. Be sure to share this one on your class website for snow days!

Bring some polar science into your classroom! Find vodcasts (video podcasts) of penguins, polar bears, and more in the video podcasts section of this site. Be sure to review the activities in the Educators Update. Learn the science of polar regions from the physical properties of melting ice to the adaptations of the animals that call the polar region their home. Meet the contributors to the site in the Travelers section.

tag(s): adaptations (17), animals (277), antarctica (29), arctic (44), polar (19)

In the Classroom

Plan a Polar Palooza with your classes! Students can brainstorm questions they have about the polar regions. For example, How do polar animals stay warm in their environment? Choose from activities in the Educators Corner such as "Life in the Cold and Dark" from the drop down menu. Activity pages include background information, objectives, activities to engage students, and exploration activities. Blubber Gloves is a great activity to learn about the physical adaptations of polar animals. Combine winter art projects with the Polar Palooza activities in class. For example, create a collage of animals that have blubber for warmth or a display of polar adaptations. Display artwork online using tools such as Artsonia, reviewed here or Dropr, reviewed here.

Use your pictures and PhotoFunia to create photo collages, flyers, family trees, holiday albums, and more. No registration is needed! PhotoFunia has hundreds of effects and filters. More are added weekly. To add shadows, age your photo, or render it black and white just visit the Filters category. Add clever features such as an astronaut or a Santa suit, a witch's hat or a queen's crown. Looking for an attractive frame for your photos? Find one here. Write on the sand or graffiti text on the wall. Carve your name on the ground or create your very own road sign using text effects. The program is as easy to use as picking the effect and uploading a photo. Save it to your computer or email it. Try using PhotoFunia online with no registration, or get the free app for iOS or Andriod, and most other smartphones. At the time of this review, all photo effects appeared appropriate for use in the classroom. However, we always suggest you preview the tool before sharing it with students.

In the Classroom

You do not need to be artistic to transform a personal or stock photo into a stunning work of art or even an amusing image. Adjust any image's color intensity, value, and hue using the filters. Use this tool anytime that photos need to be edited for use in class blogs, newsletters, wikis, or websites. In primary grades, this tool could be useful for teachers to use to edit pictures from a field trip, science experiments, and more. Share the editing process with your younger students using your interactive whiteboard or projector. Edit together! Encourage older students to use this site themselves on images for projects or presentations. Use the features and effects to edit images to fit styles of photos when doing historical reports or to set the mood.
