Your sticky note appears each time you open that page, even on another machine! Once installed, right-click on any page to add a note. Personalize notes by color, font, size, and position. Add YouTube videos that will play directly in the sticky. Drag and drop text from any program. Even convert a sticky to a "to-do" list! Follow directions to install the extension on your Chrome browser. Plans for the future of this tool include adding the ability to have a simple chat per sticky and to have reminders with notifications.

Create and play learning games with Sugarcane. Choose from eighteen options for game types including matching, associating, ordering, and categorizing activities. Sugarcane offers several additional options within each of those categories. Next, enter data in the template or import CSV or Excel files with your information. The last step provides options for personalizing games. For additional help, Sugarcane includes tutorials each step of the way. To learn more about the types of games available, browse through topics on the home page of the site to find and play games created by others. Use Google or Facebook to make an account or fill in a username, your email, and a password. You can play and create games without an account; when creating a game, you need an account to save it.

tag(s): flash cards (47), game based learning (114), puzzles (207)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site throughout the year. New to using technology or games in your classroom? Not comfortable creating games? Use the ready-made learning games on class computers or provide links to activities on your class website or blog for use at home. Another option is to challenge older students to create educational games for their peers using the templates and instructions provided. Instead of a research report, they can create a game! Share with parent helpers or classroom tutors to create review activities for student practice. Learning support teachers can have small groups create a game together to help review any material. Assign a small group of students to work with different game templates and then act as "host" of the game to quiz the rest of the class. Sugarcane is an ideal review or way to present student research information on a topic and keep the "audience" engaged.

Have students learn and answer questions about mystery objects, art prints, or books/authors with accompanying QR codes. Identify trees by creating a QR code with a question about the tree and perhaps another link taking them to specific information. Create a scavenger hunt around the school asking questions about activities in the school or certain student projects found in showcases. (The first QR code could be printed in the school newsletter.) Create a treasure hunt with books in the library to test library search skills or to find a specific book and answer questions from the index, table of contents, etc. Use QR codes on objects in Geometry to ask questions about the shapes or solve a problem based on a physical object. Any subject area and content could find a use for this Treasure Hunt Generator. Challenge students to create their own QR treasure hunts as a way to "present" research projects. Use in social studies for the entire class to create a QR code hunt around your community to bring local history to life for all residents. Create a scavenger hunt for parents to find important classroom information during Open Houses or Meet the Teacher events.

Did you ever wish for a website that would summarize long articles of text? SMMRY grants your wish! Copy and paste text, PDF's, websites, or online articles into the text box, upload a PDF file or paste a URL to begin. Choose the number of sentences for the summary, then click the summarize box and view your summary.

tag(s): summarizing (15)

In the Classroom

Introduce SMMRY to students working on research projects as a way to quickly determine content and viability of using websites. Use to differentiate instruction with students. Use with learning support students as a resource to make content easier to understand (and shorter to read). Use SMMRY summaries when teaching how to summarize in an ELA class. Compare the summary you create as a class or in small groups with the "automated" one. Are there subtleties or important distinctions that this tool misses? As a challenge for your more critical thinkers, have them try to figure out what signals the tool uses to create its summary.

Create impressive, interactive posters, images, infographics, charts, presentations and anything else you can think of with Genial.ly. Easily insert maps, surveys, video, audio and more. Select from a multitude of templates! Genial.ly is an all-in-one tool that will soon become your go-to tool for creating visual content. Register for the free account with email, or a Google or Facebook account, and then start creating (as many visuals as you'd like)! Share creations on different social networks, copying and pasting a link, using an HTML code to embed it in a website/blog, or sending it directly by e-mail. Click Learn at the top to find FAQs, a blog, and video tutorials. The videos reside on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), digital storytelling (153), images (274), infographics (47), interactive stories (31), multimedia (63), posters (40), video (276)

In the Classroom

View creations for the category from which you want your students to work from and present several using a projector or on an interactive whiteboard. Show the interactivity to students. Then, create one together as a class to try out the tools (don't forget to name it). Keep it simple or add all the bells and whistles. Preview as you work or return later to complete and publish. Of course, you will want to model and teach appropriate documentation of any sources of images and media you use and to use copyrighted works legally.

There are limitless ideas for using Genial.ly in the classroom! Here are just a few: Ask students to create their own Genial.ly as a new way to assess understanding: you could even provide links to images and raw materials they may use (especially if you have students who need extra scaffolding), and they can work with them to sequence, caption, and write about the pieces. After a first project where you possibly suggest "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 interactive together using a projector on an interactive whiteboard. Consider making a new project for each unit you teach so students can "recap" by visiting the presentation long after the unit ends. Save student projects from year to year as examples, possibly even awarding prizes for "best" examples. Have upper elementary or middle school students create an interactive project to help "little buddies" two or three grades lower to understand a concept.

In the Classroom

The possibilities for using Wakelet in the classroom are endless! Create collections with tips for writing in different genres, current events, information about specific countries or cities, math games, and much more. Have students set up their own wakes as part of a research project. Put together a wake scavenger hunt to introduce a new unit or as a review at the end of a unit. Share wakes on your class web page for student use at home to review and practice class content. Having the ability to have a cover image and background for your wakes makes them much more interesting and easily identifiable, especially for the visual students!

Build your own 3D spaces using CoSpaces, then view in virtual reality. Choose from the large library of items to include in your creation including characters and objects. To get a sense of how this works, visit the gallery to view creations built by CoSpace users. Register to create your account to start building your own 3D space. Be sure to visit the section for educators with many ideas on how to use CoSpaces in the classroom. Tutorials for CoSpaces reside on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): creativity (119), DAT device agnostic tool (170), digital storytelling (153)

In the Classroom

Recreate scenes from books or use CoSpaces to retell any story with 3D images. Encourage creativity and ask students to develop virtual exhibitions of artwork, animal habitats, or landforms. Have older students create infographics featuring data collections, for example comparing availability of Internet in different American towns.

PingPong is a free app creating an interactive network between a host and responders. Log in and create an account to begin, then share the room code with participants. Ask participants to share a response choosing from five different options: multiple choice questions with four or five choices, true/false, send text, or send an image. View responses in real-time as participants submit answers. PingPong is different from many other response systems because the host doesn't enter the questions and responses into the app.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (170), polls and surveys (54)

In the Classroom

Invite students to participate by giving them the class code - no sign-in or account required. Use in a 1:1 classroom, then have students provide feedback in real time to demonstrate understanding. Use as an exit slip, to identify material that needs to be retaught, or to locate specific students that need remediation. PingPong is perfect for use in Flipped classrooms as a quick assessment at the beginning of a flipped lesson.

Beyondpad is an organizing tool on steroids! Use this tool to create templates to track time spent on any task, build checklists, take notes, and save online information. Add tags to any item to unify and organize information. Upcoming features include images, calendars, and maps. Be sure to go into Beyondpad's Demo Mode for hands-on practice with all of the site's features. Beyondpad also includes apps for Chrome, Windows, and Firefox. The Demo Mode will not save your work unless you sign in with email and password or one of several social media accounts. At the time of this review there was one introduction video and it resides on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the video may not be viewable. You could always view it at home and bring it to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): classroom management (150), note taking (39), organizational skills (128)

In the Classroom

Create a class account to organize information into one easy to access place. Spell out the use of the site and what is allowed and not allowed -- and the penalties. Even though all students have the same login, create different notebooks for different tasks that students can use to upload information to be shared by all. Create separate accounts for student groups who can then share their notebook with other groups. Use tags to easily find and identify specific information. Create checklists of steps in a project. Place all notes in one place, so you do not forget. Use this tool easily in a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) classroom since all students will be able to access it for free, no matter what device they have. It may take some time to learn all of Beyondpad's many features, start by adding basic information and find out more as you begin to use this tool.
