In the ClassroomThis site is a must-see for all science and STEM teachers. Be sure to bookmark the site to use for lesson plans and student interactives. Easily create and share links for students using a bookmarking tool like Symbaloo, reviewed here, for younger students or SearchTeam, reviewed here, for older students. Both sites make it easy to share a group of links in one easy-to-find page. Instead of providing students with a list of vocabulary words to understand within science activities, use a tool like Use Vocabulary.com, reviewed here, to introduce and develop vocabulary during individual activities and to create personalized, online vocabulary-focused lessons. Extend classroom technology use when working with online articles, by using Fiskkit, reviewed here, as a collaborative discussion tool. After creating a Fiskkit account, use the site's tools to share a link to any online article and highlight information to use as part of your discussion. Students then can add their own thoughts to the article, making it a shared collaboration and reflection piece. As a final project, transform classroom technology use by asking students to create explainer videos using Biteable, reviewed here, to demonstrate learning of concepts. Reading teachers seeking non-fiction articles for comprehension practice will find excellent options from the news listings on the home page.
