View the most popular hashtags of the week on Twitter. When you first arrive at the site, click the small ? to access the tips for using this interesting tool. The text size indicates the popularity of the tag. Line colors identify clusters of related tags while the thickness shows the number of times the tags were used at the same time. Zoom in to see the tags used. Click on the info icon ("i") to view stats about the tag. View the actual top Tweets, the tags, and users of the Tweets. Use the tools along the top to show trends by hour. Search specific tags using the search bar. New to Twitter? Learn more from TeachersFirst Twitter for Teachers page.

tag(s): microblogging (44), twitter (50)

In the Classroom

Use this tool to show how trending topics and current events are interrelated and to brainstorm inferences about their connections, especially in terms of current events and "hot topics" in the news. Of course, the Hive Mindmap content will include pop culture and anything being discussed on Twitter, so you may encounter topics that are not curriculum related in any way. Just click to another area. Trace the tweets of trending topics and find viewpoints from a variety of people in order to understand complex issues. Use this tool in discussions of world events, politics, science discoveries, communications, information literacy, media literacy, and more. This could also serve as a prompt for students to find a topic they wish to research in depth, such as the latest Nobel announcements for science class or up to date information about a country in turmoil for a world cultures class.

If you use Dropbox or Box to collect student work, don't miss this site! Use this tool to move files out of Dropbox or Box and into a different or private folder for grading. This is especially useful if you have a "Turn In" folder where students place completed assignments. Use to sort pictures or videos easily and make the organization of Dropbox easy and automatic. Login easily with your Dropbox account. Create "rules" in this tool that are automatically used in your Dropbox account to move your files around to folders you designate. Files and folders are checked against these rules frequently to keep your Dropbox or Box account neat and tidy.

tag(s): images (266), video (253), writing (359)

In the Classroom

Use to manage pictures or videos taken in the classroom and uploaded to Dropbox. If you are using Dropbox in your class, set up this site at the beginning of the year to save you time! Create a rule that moves them all into the same folder (or folders) for easy organization and location of files later. Assignments that are turned in can be moved by a rule you create to go to a private folder that can be accessed later for grading.

Buncee is a digital canvas for adding multimedia to tell and share stories. Give your canvas a title. Choose from tools to add interest such as photos, videos, audio, stickers, and backgrounds. The free accounts allow for unlimited slides. Adjust privacy settings for private or public viewing and allowing comments. Publish and share using social networking options such as Facebook, Twitter, or email. Unfortunately, the teacher tools are not part of the free version. Use Buncee on the web on your computer or use iOS. The introduction video is hosted on YouTube. You may want to preview the "how to" video at home. If you wish to share it at school, bring the video to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the video from YouTube.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): digital storytelling (145), multimedia (57), slides (63)

In the Classroom

Create simple, yet effective, interactive lessons for viewing on your interactive whiteboard or projecter. Include video clips, images (JPGs only), and web links. Use Buncees in your flipped classroom for student viewing at home. Have students create and share their own Buncees for classroom presentations. Create an interactive Buncee for Open House and Meet the Parent sessions. Create a short story or a flip book (using Buncee) for your students to view on individual computers or your interactive whiteboard.

Populr is an easy to use SINGLE web page creation tool. This tool is intended to create simple, quick pages that still look good. Sign up using your email, Facebook, or Google to begin. Choose from different theme options or begin with a blank page to create your own web page. Edit easily with drop-down boxes for changing colors, fonts, and more. View short video tutorials each step of the way explaining available features. Collaborate with others by enabling the collaboration link. Enable the clone link for others to duplicate your page and create their own version. The free version of the site allows unlimited published pages, video recording, and a 12mb document limit. Note: There are examples from the general public available from the home page. Although none seems inappropriate at this time, you might want to preview before sharing with students.

tag(s): blogs (88), portfolios (28), social networking (112)

In the Classroom

Use this site for students to post simple projects such as stories, poems, and art projects. This is a simple tool to create individual portfolios, too. In lower grades, create a page together as a class on a projector or whiteboard. Collect a master list of the links to student pages on your classroom website, wiki, or blog for easy access. If students create pages, be sure to check with your district's policy on student use of email as well as publishing of student work. You may want to use a single class account so you have control. Create websites for many projects: back to school introductions, any subject/topic, research projects, book reports... the possibilities go on and on! Create a handy page to share resources and information during field trips or outside activities. If you assign gifted students (age 13+) to do alternate projects beyond the regular curriculum, this may be one of the tools they like to use. You could use a teacher account so students do not have to create a login. This would also be a useful tool for middle and high school gifted students to create an online portfolio. Start by having them create a real world presence to publish links and images of their best work, especially projects that take on a life of their own long after the assignment ends. This is for students to present their best face to the public. Encourage them to take ownership of it.

StoryToolz offers many different tools for authors: story generators, word count meters, a readability analysis, a random conflict generator, a title generator, a cliche buster, and more. Choose any of the topics to begin. Story generators offer suggestions for conflict within a story or half a title. Choose from random title beginnings and endings to generate your title. Don't miss the Readability area: paste up to 5K of text in the box to check the readability of any source. Registration isn't required; however, it offers the opportunity for additional resources within the word count meter section and a larger portion of text for analyzing in the readability section.

tag(s): creative writing (166), readability (8), stories and storytelling (33)

In the Classroom

Share StoryToolz with students in your writing class to generate ideas for stories and possible centers of conflict to map out new tale. Use the readability section with any writing to determine appropriateness for use with students. Have students paste their writing in the readability section to determine if their writing is at an appropriate grade level or to note information such as words per sentence or use of various parts of speech. Paste into the cliche buster to point out ho-hum wording and overused expressions. Suddenly, students may begin to write more complex sentences or use more vivid language. Be sure to include a link to this site on your class webpage and classroom computers for use throughout the year. The readability portion of the site is a great resource for ESL/ELL and Special Education teachers to help determine appropriateness of reading materials.

This is a great site to support many experiments in science. Calculate acceleration, velocity, and time, or use the mathematics category to complete problems. Use this tool in social studies class for quickly calculating years or months from important timelines or when figuring out geographical distances. In English or L.A. classes, quickly figure out the life span of authors or how long ago a story took place. In health or science classes, use the BMI calculator or get other accurate measurements. Visit Calkoo and select a calculator to meet your needs! Include this site on your class web page for students and parents to access as a reference. The various languages make this tool very useful for ESL/ELL students.

Save, organize, and share the web with Keeeb. Similar to Pinterest, reviewed here, Keeeb is a virtual pinboard for anything on the web. Create an account then create topic pages for your collections. Group, arrange, comment, and organize as you prefer. Make pages private or public and share as desired. The ability to make some boards private distinguishes this from similar tools. Although this site is in English, the introduction video is in German. However, you can follow the graphics to easily understand what is happening. The video is hosted on YouTube. If your school blocks YouTube, you may want to view the video at home. It probably would not be useful to share the video with students.

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

In the Classroom

Use this site as a resource for finding and organizing websites for classroom use. In lower grades, use to organize sites visually for non-readers. Create your own Keeebs for organizing classroom resources found on the web. Share your Keeebs with students and parents by putting the link on your class website. Challenge your older students to curate their own boards as a research project. Follow other Keeeb users with similar interests as a resource for finding new and interesting websites.

Stella's Stunners is a collection of over 600 "non-routine" math problems. They range from visual problems to those that involve use of pre-algebra on up through pre-calculus. In addition to the math problems, the site also includes tips for extending problems, using the problems in the classroom, and suggestions for grading. Each problem also includes a link to the solution. Search for specific topics by math course, problem title, or Stella decimal system. To FIND the collection, click on Complete Stella Library.

tag(s): logic (235), problem solving (272)

In the Classroom

Use Stella's Stunners as a problem of the day to begin math class. Assign problems for homework or extra credit. Have students create an online or printed comic using one of the tools and ideas included in this collection to describe how to solve problems. Use as part of student math journals and have students explain the problem solving process for each problem. Use this site with your gifted students. Challenge your gifted students to create their own "Stunners."
