View visual guidelines for proper email etiquette. We all need to develop e-mail writing skills for an academic setting with classmates, teachers, administrators, and members of the community in the 21st century. Download the PDF visual guidelines to guide you and your students on the manners and responsibilities associated with communicating through email. Be sure to provide credit to the author in your classroom, website, or blog if you post the PDF.

tag(s): digital citizenship (59), writing (359)

In the Classroom

A great visual to share with your students to develop quality communication skills. Discuss rules, rights, privileges, and responsibilities of a digital citizen. Create your own guide using a tool such as Web Poster Wizard (reviewed here) or PicLits (reviewed here with your students for their use of their own school email address. Print your guide, have the class sign it, and post it in the classroom as a visual reminder to their commitment to digital citizenship. Share the printables or the links to the students' guides with parents at open house or conferences. Have students create online posters individually or together as a class.

Find a colorful, creative Infographic for just about any topic on this sharing site. Use one of the forty-plus categories or type your keyword in a search box. There are so many cool Infographics at this site that you won't have to create one of your own. But if you do, you can upload it and have it displayed on Infographics Only. What is an Infographic? Learn more about Infographics here. Be sure to take time to preview the Infographics on this site as some may not be suitable for young people. It would be best to link directly to the Infographic you want to share.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): charts and graphs (195), data (148), graphic design (35), infographics (42)

In the Classroom

Common Core emphasizes "reading" of visual sources of information, and this is the perfect source. Why not use an Infographic as an introduction to a unit or lesson in your classroom? Create open ended questions about the Infographic to use as a formative assessment tool. Ask students to create questions about the topic of the Infographic. Reading teachers could choose an Infographic on a daily/weekly basis for teaching/practicing how to interpret informational graphics within a text. If they are mature enough to ignore some topics, consider having students go to the Just for Fun category and choose an Infographic. Then ask students to report out the "main idea" of the graphic and give three supporting details as evidence. For any subject, as a form of summative evaluation, consider assigning students to create an Infographic about a topic covered in class as a way to show understanding. If your students are new to creating infographics, have them view Creating Infographics: A Screencast Tutorial reviewed here. For more examples of how to use infographics in your classroom, view the recording of an OK2Ask online professional development session found here. This session is 75 minutes in length.

The WD-1 DJ-Trainer is an online musical tool to create a dance track. Select from 25 professional sound banks to make your own hip hop, techno, trance, reggae, rock, disco, jazz, or samba track. Learn about timing and "building" a song on this easy to use site. Start the samples and the loops using your keyboard or mouse to control the sounds. Help buttons are available for all the buttons. Make your own groove by controlling the loops and the time triggered sounds. This is a great site to make music magical and to fill up the dance floor. An iOS app is available -- for purchase.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): music theory (43), musical instruments (48), musical notation (35), songs (52)

In the Classroom

Use this site in music classes to teach musicians about timing and the layers of a track. Create songs or poems for any subject area and use the WD-1 DJ-Trainer to create a track to support the lyrics. Create a track that reflects the tone or mood of a poem and recite the poem with the track to integrate music with language arts. Record your track with GarageBand or Audacity because you're unable to save your tracks on WD-1 DJ-Trainer. Create tracks or have your students create tracks for morning announcements or transitions in the classroom. This would be a great site for improvisation in music class or the regular education classroom. Create tracks to support readers' theatre activities in the classroom. Have students create podcasts using a site such as Spreaker (reviewed here) or PodOmatic (reviewed here). Use the tracks created on this site in the background for the podcasts. Use music as a classroom management tool by recording "theme music" as cues for different transitions and activities. Teachers of gifted can challenge their students to tell a story in music using this tool.

Screenhero is a screen sharing service that allows the option for both parties to share the mouse on the other person's screen. Watch the one minute video on the site for a nice overview of how the application works. Begin by both parties downloading the software onto computers to use. Choose between the options to share window or share entire screen. Each person has a mouse cursor labeled with his/her name, to use during sharing. Pause or end sessions when ready using the stop share button.

tag(s): homework (44), tutorials (47)

In the Classroom

Screen share with students working on individual computers to demonstrate items such as website addresses, how to locate information on websites, or when learning text editing features such as changing font size or color. This is a great alternative if a projector or interactive whiteboard is not available. Use this tool to collaborate with other teachers when creating lesson plans or student documents. Ask students using a computer for a presentation to share their screen with the teacher's computer to make information easier to view. Share this site with students to use at home when collaborating on projects. Help a homebound student or offer "extra help" sessions via screen share at predetermined "office hours" or during a snow day. Consider having students teach tech skills to their peers using this free sharing app.

Click to edit text, or choose the + icon to add a new branch. Drag elements anywhere on your screen to rearrange. Invite others to view, add, or edit your Coggle using the share button. Allow other users read-only access or read-and-edit access. Download finished Coggles as a PDF file or a png image. The introduction/explanation video is hosted on YouTube. If YouTube is blocked at your school, you may want to view the video and familiarize yourself with the website from your home computer.

In the Classroom

Coggle's ease of use makes it easy to focus on the process of creating a mind map, rather than learning how to use the program or playing with its features to make it pretty. Have your class create organizers together, such as in a brainstorming session on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Assign students to "map" out a chapter or story. Assign groups to create study guides using this tool. Use this site for literature activities, research projects, social studies, or science topics. Use this site to create family trees or food pyramids in family and consumer science. Have students collaborate (online) to create group mind maps or review charts before tests on a given subject. Have students organize any concepts you study; color-code concepts to show what they understand, wonder, and question; map out a story, plot line, or plan for the future; map out a step-by-step process (life cycle).

Many of these pictures are appropriate for use in the classroom and can be downloaded for student use. Find images and figures, backgrounds and wallpapers, as well as icon sets. When using the clipart, be sure to download to your computer first before inserting into an application. Copying it directly from the website puts a black background behind your image.

Some specific topics include grammar, word usage, mechanics, word study, basic operations, algebraic thinking, measurement, fraction, geometry, word problems, and more.

Pinterest and Learnist are for general public use, but eduClipper takes the best of both of those tools and puts them together for educators and their students. The real difference with eduClipper for educators is the ability to create classes. Make your clipboards public or private. Post videos, documents, links, or upload files. Get great ideas by browsing existing clipboards with no registration, or save those searches and create subject specific clipboards by registering for free.

tag(s): bookmarks (60), organizational skills (122), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

The real difference about eduClipper for educators is the ability to create classes. This makes it easy to create small groups for investigations and have the students post for each other their findings and suggestions. Brainstorming with the entire class with eduClipper allows everyone to contribute and view the brainstorm even when they are not in class. For more ideas about using eduClipper with and in your classroom, see the classroom suggestions for a similar program, Learnist, reviewed here.

In the Classroom

Choose these games for student play during computer lab or at classroom centers to practice math and language skills. Although simple, they provide fun review of skills. Demonstrate some of the activities on your interactive whiteboard. Although this site was created to help teachers find educational "fun" activities to do during indoor recess, the activities would also be great for learning centers or use in an interactive whiteboard center. The reading category for this site is the most valuable for learning new skills or reviewing skills.
