Create digital portfolios in a matter of minutes using this educational platform. Assign simple or complex projects, and create rubrics for them that can include Common Core Standards, NETS, or your own criteria. Notify students once the project is complete via this program. View the Public Projects Library to see how finished projects look, to use the project, or to share your project with other educators. When creating a project, you can choose to allow students and parents to make comments or not. There is a Getting Started Guide, or you can watch a tutorial from the Video Library. Open School ePortfolio offers free iOS and Android apps or works on any web browser. Use this tool each year with your new students. In order for the portfolio to follow a student to the next grade level, your district must pay a fee.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): digital storytelling (152), portfolios (33), rubrics (32), writing (367)

In the Classroom

Use Open School ePortfolio for student portfolios in any subject. Set up an account with your teacher name, email, password, and some basic information. You will then receive an email with an activation link and directions for setting up the school year and classes. Included in the email is a link to a complete guide for Open School ePortfolio. Once your account is set up, create a simple project or borrow one from the Public Projects Library. Share the project on your interactive whiteboard or projector to get your students started. Students can set learning goals in addition to the teacher's goals. The teacher portal allows you to assess and comment directly in the program. Science teachers could have students write up their lab reports in a portfolio, and history teachers could set up portfolios for student report writing. Students and parents are alerted when you have finished grading an assignment. Watch student growth all year and share it with parents.

Venue used a traveling rig and interview studio to roam the North American landscape between 2012 and 2013 as a 21st century expedition. The expedition's purpose was "to document often overlooked yet fascinating sites through the eyes of the innovators, trendsetters, entrepreneurs, and designers at the forefront of ideas today." Click on the Explore tab to view expedition photographs, and stories from a variety of perspectives: historic, scientific, and artistic. Each venue is a map marker that displays an area, usually far from a city center, showcasing human interaction with the Earth. Archives of Venue's travels cover much of the 50 states. Click on the map to view the map points. Click on a map point to see information for that particular site. All age groups will find the stories (such as Tales from the Crash) fascinating, excellent examples of how science, storytelling, and art come together.

tag(s): digital storytelling (152), forests (28), genetics (95), geology (81), maps (292), STEM (156)

In the Classroom

In a geography or social studies class, begin discussions of certain locations by starting with a Venue story. In language arts or science classes begin discussions with the science behind the story. Zoom the map out to find artistic and historic markers in your area. Explore photographs to serve as inspiration for stories. Students can choose a location to research and report on to the class. Use this as an inspiration to create your own "Venue" in your area. Students can find interesting places in your area, research the history, collect images, videos, and interviews associated with the place or an event. This would be a perfect cross curricular project! Create an online display of the student work using a wiki or blog.

Practice telling time and recognizing and spelling numbers with this interactive virtual book from France. It was apparently created to help students learning English but is very helpful for basics about time. Click on page corners to flip through different pages. Activities include matching numbers, listening to famous clocks, and writing the correct time. Each activity includes a button to check answers and see your score. This font is rather small. This site is fairly "old" in twenty-first century terms, but it works well for practice.

tag(s): counting (120), multiples (36), numbers (203), spelling (169), time (141)

In the Classroom

Use Time on classroom computers for a time and number practice center. Display pages on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) for a quick review of telling time. Share a link on your class website or blog for students to practice at home.

Anybody Can Learn Code is designed to spark interest in learning to code, especially among girls and the very young. Find lessons for beginners, Kindergartners to tenth graders (or older). Start by clicking Learn in the top menu bar. Find an Hour of Code with 20 puzzles that use a drag and drop process and problem-solving skills. Complete the Hour of Code and select Beyond One Hour. Find everything an early coder needs to get started coding: A K-8 Intro to Computer Science, Tutorials that teach Javascript, Tutorial apps for any device, Learn to program with robots, and many others. There are also "unplugged tutorials" for classrooms without computers. On the top menu, click on the Teach button to find the link to videos (half way down the page) from famous people about how and when they learned to code. The videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube. Code.org is available in 20 languages.

tag(s): coding (53), computers (94), critical thinking (112), STEM (156), women (92)

In the Classroom

Make coding part of science inquiry or math logic in any classroom. Include it as part of scientific method or discussions about careers in science. You may even want to portray coding as just another "world language" in today's world. Be sure to look at all the implementation advice before introducing these extensive coding resources to your class. It would be wise to complete the Hour of Code yourself so you will feel comfortable helping students if they get stuck. Better yet, invite a few students to do an hour with you after school and learn together! You will have a team of "techsperts" to help their peers. Select the Learn button from the top menu to find two links for educators. The one at the top of the Learn page gives quick tips for prepping for the Hour of Code. The one at the bottom of the slide gives complete instructions for implementing the Hour of Code in your classroom. Plan an hour of Code on nationally designated days or on your own calendar! Invite the PTA/PTO to host a coding event. Select a video to use to introduce Computer Science to your students. In a 1:1 or BYOD classroom, guide students through the site using Surfly, a tool to share the web pages with others, reviewed here. If you only have a few computers, introduce this tool using a projector or interactive whiteboard and bookmark it as a learning station with earbuds/headphones. Encourage students to help each other when they have difficulty. Share this on your website for students to use at home, too. Anybody Can Learn Code teaches the basics. Those students who show a keen interest in coding could learn more by using a program such as Codeacademy, reviewed here.

Poetica is a browser-based text editor with real-time feedback and collaboration. Create an account using your email. Upload documents from your computer or begin a new document within Poetica. Receive feedback by selecting the "Ask for Feedback" button. Share using the link where the invitee may choose to revise anonymously (no registration) or by sending to email addresses. When sending via email the invitee can choose to revise anonymously (again no registration required), but their email address will show on revisions. Never lose the original or any edits your collaborators make. Download the final draft to your computer in one of the several different formats.

tag(s): editing (70), proofreading (25), writing (367)

In the Classroom

Have students set up collaborative groups for projects, lab data, and more. Anything students can do on a single computer they can do collaboratively with this tool, accessing work from any computer that can access the Internet. Be sure to test out this tool before using with your class. Set up a class account and instruct small revision groups to exchange email addresses. Students can then send the rough draft via email to their revising group. The group members would respond to the email and click on anonymous to make suggestions. This allows the writer to know who is making the revisions without the editor having to make an account. It may be a good idea to set up the groups with the teacher as a "member." Have students work from home for group projects. Make sure to protect the safety of student work and identity. Check your school's Acceptable Use Policy.

Create an innovative, exciting revision experience for students to suggest changes to each others' writing and instantly engage in the peer review process by using Poetica. This tool facilitates teacher comments on student essays by not having to wait until students turn in their papers. Have them share links with you to their works in progress. Check essays online, monitor progress, and even make suggestions for revisions to provide feedback along the way and drive successful evidence support, proofreading, and editing skills. Challenge gifted students on their drafts and push their thinking further, adding questions or responses. Since most of us do not have time to consistently provide such individual challenge throughout the writing process, why not connect them with other gifted students to collaborate and debate beyond just your classroom? Obviously, this tool is also fabulous for collaboration among students or teachers creating a shared writing piece at any level. You could even use it for parent input into draft IEPs.

Join a journey to eleven countries and three continents as part of a global STEM learning adventure aligned to Next Gen and Common Core Reading standards. The site navigation itself takes a little "exploration," but the time is well worth it. Learn about locations around the world as you explore science and technology at each stop along the way. Learn about the captain and crew under Flight Briefing. Follow the clickable flight route under Flight Tracker. Take a flight tutorial at Fly with Us (under Flight Briefings). Explore videos on the Blog and under Flight Briefings. Watch the intro video on the home page. Some of the videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): aircraft (24), animals (291), architecture (83), ecosystems (83), endangered species (40), flight (36), oceans (154), STEM (156), volcanoes (65), weather (198)

In the Classroom

Incorporate this expedition into your units on continents, exploration and explorers (to compare modern exploration with historic expeditions), or science units on flight, energy and more. See the Blog for specific scientific explorations your students can read in groups or as a class. Include this resource in a unit on scientists and what they do. Include some of the readings as informational texts that will generate high student interest. This is a great resource for your gifted students in a regular classroom to extend curriculum and share what they have learned with classmates. For more background for teachers, see the Executive Summary under "About." Have students use a class account to create maps using Animaps, reviewed here. Students can add text, images, and location stops! Middle school students can use Fakebook, reviewed here, to create a "fake" page similar in style to Facebook about any of the people on Captain Barrington's journey.

Share and discuss photos or other images in real-time using Live. No registration is required. Live works only on Chrome and Firefox browsers. Drag and drop or upload images from your computer to Live to begin a session. Be sure to allow access to your computer's microphone for online conversations, or use the chat box if you prefer. The real power of LIVE is being able to "narrate" and discuss images orally, though. Copy or tweet the link to share the URL for your session. Once participants enter the session, the site's tools allow options for drawing using the brush tool, watermarks on images, and zooming in and out to share features of images.

tag(s): images (275)

In the Classroom

Use Live as an alternative to other screen sharing tools to maintain quality when discussing images. Use it with your 1:1 art class to discuss design principles and techniques in images or works of art. Suggest students use Live when collaborating on group art or media projects. Students can create or alter group products such as logos for their mock companies or political party. World language classes can use an image to spark conversation and vocabulary practice using this online tool, even if they are not in the same location! Set up a LIVE session with a partner class at another school for sharing images and the stories behind them. Share an image of a student's work using a Live session during a parent phone conference.

Life Skills, created in the UK, offers programs for entering the 21st century work force. Begin by choosing the student or teacher portal. Student information includes People Skills, Managing Money, How to Gain Work Experience, and more presented through videos and interactive activities. Access lesson plans, worksheets, and online activities through the teacher registration. Registration is free with email. The site was created in the UK, so some of the pronunciations, spellings, and use of currency will differ from those in American English. The principles are the same, once you figure out slight terminology differences.

tag(s): careers (140), financial literacy (80)

In the Classroom

Help students appreciate that career planning is an ongoing process that includes education, aptitudes, and personality in order to find a "good fit." Life Skills is a great resource for helping students get more concrete information and insight into the sometimes vexing question of "what I want to do when I grow up." Use it in guidance classes or as part of a budgeting and life planning section in Family and Consumer Science or business classes.

Memidex is a free online dictionary and thesaurus that will work on any computer or device that can access the Internet. A clear, simple, uncluttered layout and the fast access time make it a desirable choice for quick word access, especially when using a mobile device. Some of the features include auto-suggest for searches, definitions from many different references, etymology references, audio references, adult filtering, no obscure abbreviated labels, and audio pronunciations in North American and British English. Be aware: this site includes some words that are not appropriate for the classroom. There is an adult filter for obscenity, ethnic slurs, and other words deemed offensive. Read more about the adult filter by clicking on the link in the descriptive paragraph on the home page. If mobile devices don't have Java and cookies enabled, the filter won't work on them. Be sure students know the rules and boundaries when using this site.

tag(s): dictionaries (57), pronunciation (44), thesaurus (24)

In the Classroom

Use Memidex on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) to explore word origins, definitions, and more. Set this site as the home page on classroom computers for student use. Be sure to share this site with parents for use at home too! In addition to defining the word or phrase, the dictionary has click-able audio recordings to hear how the word is pronounced in North American and British English. This site could be very useful for ESL/ELL students. Talk with your district technology department about including the adult filter as part of the security settings on servers. Any settings you "save" will only save on the computer being used.

tag(s): charts and graphs (196), data (153), percent (83)

In the Classroom

Collect data in your classroom and quickly create a graph to represent it. Share through links or adding images to blogs, wikis, or websites. Share graphs on an interactive whiteboard or projector for better analysis of data by the class. Graph results of a test, answers from students, favorite foods, fictitious budgets, class schedules, and whatever else is applicable in your classroom. Use an informational text, and have students create a pie chart to understand how to read charts that accompany the informational texts. Have cooperative learning groups create graphs to share with the class on the class wiki. Create quick pie charts on your interactive whiteboard whenever you count class votes or encounter other data so students "see" data visualized on a regular basis; visual students will have another way to absorb the information. Keep the link handy on your web page to access it quickly in or out of class.

Visit Cool Kid Facts to find information for just about anything in this world or even out of this world! Select from Geography, History, Science, Animals, and Human Body. There are also topics in the right menu on the home page that range from Albert Einstein to Volcanoes and nearly everything else you can think of (alphabetically) in between. There are articles, videos, pictures, and quizzes, too. The videos are from various outside sources and are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

In the Classroom

Share this site with students on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) and show them all the different subjects available. Challenge students to find a topic about which they know nothing (or barely anything). This site will give them experience reading informational text on a topic they wonder about. Partner weaker readers with others who may be able to help them read the text-heavier articles. Have students read and research individually or in small groups taking notes using a simple graphic organizer from 25 Language Arts Graphic Organizers, reviewed here. Use this opportunity to teach summarizing, and citing sources. Cool Kid Facts is a great tool to build background knowledge about all sorts of topics!

Homeroom is an online tool and mobile app to share your class photos privately with parents, students, and others. Create an album and invite people to view it. Each time you update it, the members will be notified. When you populate your album with photos, you can also add a comment. Access Homeroom and upload photos on any device. For Initial registration you can use the app (iOs or Android) or register using your Google or Facebook account, or manually using email. Once registered, you can access the tool using any device using your username and password. Invite others from any device or computer by phone number or email address. They will become members and will be able to update your photo albums. You will be alerted about the new content. Albums are private. Only the people with the invite have access to the photos.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (173), images (275), photography (161)

In the Classroom

Invite parents and students as you create albums of specific events such as field trips, service projects, hands-on activities, field experiences, class speakers, and more. Anywhere photos can be used to showcase achievement, this service would be a great resource. Use for any project, class explanation of concepts, experiments, or demonstrations. Resource teachers, speech teachers, or world language teachers can collect images into "albums" for students to practice/develop speech and vocabulary. In science class when having students do insect collections, instead of having them collect the actual specimens, have them take pictures using their phones or digital cameras. Have the students upload to the album at home, and then they can create a multimedia project with the pictures and statistics of the specimen. Students can snap a picture anywhere, with any device, and upload to the web to use in class or cooperative groups. This tool would be great for clubs and performance groups as well! Do you send a newsletter home to parents? Try creating a heading made from a collage of your latest class activity. Use a program such as Mosaic Maker, reviewed here, to create a collage. Though the content is private, monitor student photos and comments as nothing would be prohibited by Homeroom. You will be notified of all new content.
