The site calls itself the "YouTube of Quizzes." This site allows you to create ONLINE quizzes. You MUST register to use this site. Registration does require an email address, user name, and password. Registration takes less than ten seconds, and is very simple.

Once registered, you click to create a quiz. Then you are asked to choose between a personality quiz or a scored quiz. This site offers extraordinary details. At the scored quiz, you are able to provide a title, tags, description, and choose the type of questions (multiple choice, essay, or fill in the blank). It is simple to insert images, change font styles, insert links, and even score the online quiz. You can create a pass/fail quiz, a graded quiz (with YOU determining what qualifies as an A, B, etc..). You are also able to set a time limit, issue a certificate of achievement, and fill in the possible total score.

Once students have taken the quiz, immediate feedback is provided (including a scale of all participants, the correct answers, final score, and grade). This is a fantastic tool to use to create online quizzes!

Caution: this site does include some minor advertisements. At the time of this review, all advertisements were appropriate. But it would be wise to advise students NOT to click off of the quiz onto any of the advertisements or links.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): quiz (87)

Developed by Kenneth Beare of ESL at about.com, this site is a welcome addition to the ESL and ELL world. The site offers a wide variety of activities that focus on language learning using real tasks instead of text books and grammar exercises. The site has interactive listening and vocabulary activities. A current lecture podcast allows students to listen as much as they like before proceeding to a quiz or questions. There are new podcasts once every two weeks. Students can also write responses to the piece they heard. Other interesting activities include looking at photos and selecting the sentence which best describes the site, writing practice, lessons based on Monty Python's Flying Circus, and Splashcast episodes describing a new technological item.

Preview any podcasts and/or videos before sharing them with your class. Some topics may be inappropriate for younger grades. This site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): listening (92), movies (69), podcasts (54)

In the Classroom

Save this site on your favorites on your classroom computer or on your teacher web page for ESL and ELL students to access from anywhere. Remind them to check back often for new activities and lectures.

Have your ESL or ELL students create their own videos or podcasts about current events. Use a site like TeacherTube (explained here), to record and share your videos.

This free, beta site is a useful photo editing service. Edited pictures are saved on the computer and are not public for viewing. Use this site to create montaged images, resize photos for emailing or use on wikis, etc, or simply because your camera files are too big to store.

tag(s): editing (66)

In the Classroom

Know how to browse to find files saved on your computer and be willing to "play" with the tools and menus, if you are unfamiliar with photo-editors.

Click Jump In to access Photoshop-type tools. Select an image saved on your computer or your desktop or create a new one. Currently, pictures cannot be accessed from online photo storage sites. The top menu contains almost any option the average user would need to edit and manipulate pictures. The menu is easy to navigate and read. Help is minimal at this time. The site is easy to use, and users of other paint and editing applications will be at ease using this site. Students will love the filter options for altering pictures. Multiple images can be edited or "montaged." When editing is complete, save the image by specifying an image name and file type (JPEG or PNG). Click "OK," and the file will be downloaded to your machine. The simple interface and fast site makes this a great editing application to try.

Use this site to add information to pictures for class and student projects and creations. Add attributions (copyright info and sources) directly to the photo. Add student responses to pictures of class experiments. Create artistic effects with student pictures. The ideas for picture taking, creating, and sharing are endless. Make this a link from your class wiki so students can cut down file sizes before uploading large photos or make edited composites to communicate their message visually. As you study propaganda, have students create propaganda images to share on a class wiki or classroom bulletin board. Art teachers will love the ability to teach photo montage without expensive software. Make creative bulletin board displays from multiple digital pictures of special events, adding text and captions right into the photo. ESL/ELL, language, and special ed teachers can ask students to label images with sentences including correct vocabulary and grammar. Have students in your reading class create visual idiom images using digital pictures.

Keep this tool handy as a link from your teacher web page for quick access any time!

Your busy life needs a manager. Now you have one: RememberTheMilk.com (also known as RTM). Don't worry about missing a date; any or all of these applications or programs will remind you: email, SMS, and instant messenger (AIM, Gadu-Gadu, Google Talk, ICQ, Jabber, MSN, Skype and Yahoo) are all supported. Set up a free account in minutes. Secondary students will embrace this tool to remind them of tests or assignments or sporting events. List making has made it to a whole new level.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (166), organizational skills (127), time (142)

In the Classroom

Read the Blog at this site to learn many cool ways to interact with your personal computer an devices using RTM. Learning support teachers and teachers of disorganized gifted students may want to "model" using such an online tool to help middle and high school students learn better personal organization. Make a demo account for a "mythical" student and organize him/her together so students can see how it works. You will have to check school policies and access to some of the messaging tools, however, since some may be prohibited in your school. Learning support and gifted teachers will welcome this online tool as an engaging way for students to become better-organized. Give students a tech tool, and they just might try it!

This amazing (and free) website offers individualized lessons for emergent readers. First 55, features the first 55 words that students learn to read. This site offers language arts activities for young students. The activities include audio, so even non-readers can participate. The site states that students should spend ten minutes per day on the activities, but this can be tailored to your L.A. class. If you want to get an idea if this website would work for your students, check out the demonstration video.

Once you register (which is free, but requires an email), you can go to the Teacher's Desk to add as many students as you wish (just names, no emails needed). This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): sight words (37)

In the Classroom

Introduce this website to your class on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Signing up each of your students will only take a few minutes. You simply type in a name and choose a picture.

This site is also ideal for special education, ESL, and ELL students.

Be sure to list this site in your class newsletter or on your class website (especially if you aren't going to be using the site daily in class).

This simple yet engaging website challenges students to identify synonyms. Students enter Sam's Lab, where her dog is waiting to play along. Sam presents students with a word and two blank spaces. Students must identify two synonyms that describe the word that Sam has presented. There are arrows students click to display the choices. There are only three choices for each blank, and students can hear the audio readings of each word by clicking on the word. This simple assistance helps less fluent readers, special education students, ESL, and ELL students. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): synonyms (38), vocabulary (325)

In the Classroom

Use this as an anticipatory set for a lesson on synonyms. Display Sam's Lab on your interactive whiteboard or projector and have students play along at their seats.

At this site, students learn about each of the 50 states. They connect dots to create the outline of a state. Students can choose from an assorted number of "exam" questions; they can also choose whether to have questions on the name of the state, its capital, or its state name. The speed of the questions varies also. Students receive a score on the accuracy of their drawing with the mouse and the answer to the question about the state.

This site does have some minor advertisements. This site requires Flash. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): capitals (24), drawing (78), states (162)

In the Classroom

Use this activity as practice with states state capitals, or state shapes. Your visual and kinesthetic learners will benefit from this different approach. This site is accessible to ESL and ELL students; provide them with a map of the states and they can use this activity to familiarize themselves with state names, pronunciation, shape, location, etc.

This site is "interactive whiteboard ready." Try the activity as a class challenge (at the beginning of social studies class). Have students take turns "drawing" the state, and then use the "quiz" questions a class (or team) activity. Once students are familiar with this site, allow them to explore on their own. Have students create their own dot to dot state papers and quizzes to share with the class.

Which Clifford? challenges students to decide between Clifford (the puppy) and Clifford (the Big Red Dog). Students are presented with a challenge (i.e. which Clifford can go under the fence). Then students click on either the grown up Clifford or Clifford the puppy. The challenge is quick (3-5 questions) and can be replayed with new questions for repeated fun. Audio sound is available (and can be turned off), so even non-readers can use this site. This site reinforces opposites and requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

This site converts text to speech. Students or teachers can choose which voice they'd like to hear read the text. As they listen to the oral version of whatever they've pasted into the box, keywords for the text appear in a box below the play button. Select to keep your new oral files private or make them public, using the podcast library option. Download files to an MP3 player or wav file. Students can also convert and listen to files in Spanish, French, and German, all with a variety of readers. Registration for the service is simple and free. A useful option for ESL and ELL students is the ability to control the speed of the speech being read.

This site requires registration (with an email address and user name). The registration page says that the site is available "by invitation only," however our reviewers found that we were able to register. This site requires Windows Media Player. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

In the Classroom

Use this site to tape read-alongs for reluctant readers, ESL, or ELL students. This site is especially useful for ESL, ELL, speech, world language, and special education classrooms. Have your students use initials or assign logical pseudonyms (Ex. MsGper2-12, MsGper2-13, etc.) for their user names. Keep your own record of their user names and passwords for accountability in case there are any problems. Make this site available on classroom computers with ear phones for any time students want to hear something read.
