WittyWe is an online learning portal for students in grades K-9. It includes content in many topic areas, including entrepreneurship, personal life skills, media, and STEM. Some of the content requires a paid subscription; instead, take advantage of the free 90-day membership, or look for activities with the "free" banner on the thumbnail icon. Most activities include a short video lesson accompanied by a quiz, challenge activity, and summary of the task.

tag(s): body systems (41), branches of government (57), business (44), communication (137), electricity (61), environment (221), financial literacy (93), human body (93), internet safety (112), marine biology (23), native americans (81), photosynthesis (21), social and emotional learning (56), social media (46), world war 1 (59)

In the Classroom

Use the activities found in WittyWe to provide instruction in content not typically covered in all curriculums. For example, assign activities related to entrepreneurship to complete during computer centers or include free lessons about the law as part of civics lessons. Share links to free lessons using Symbaloo, reviewed here, for easy access by students. Include a link to your Symbaloo on your class website for students to access at home. Supplement your current lessons with those found on WittyWe using a learning management system such as TES Teach Blendspace, reviewed here. Include the free activities from this site along with videos, quizzes, and additional articles of your choosing. When it is time for students to demonstrate learning, provide options for showing what they know using Book Creator, reviewed here, or a video creation tool like Animoto, reviewed here.

Icebreaker is a group chat and video conversation utility that includes guided conversation games. Add up to 40 people to your meeting with unlimited conversations included in the free plan. Once the event starts, use Icebreaker's templates to host a virtual meet and greet, watch videos together, or watch a featured speaker. After selecting a template, follow the prompts to set up your virtual event and personalize activities to suit your needs. Once your event room is set up, copy the link and share it with participants via email, text, Slack, or calendar.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): chat (41), communication (137), parent conferences (22), professional development (262), remote learning (46)

In the Classroom

Use Icebreaker as a back-to-school activity when teaching remotely for students and you to get to know one another. Set up professional development sessions with peers that take advantage of the templates and cards found in the application. Use Icebreaker to set up virtual parent/teacher conferences with participants located anywhere in the world. This tool is especially useful when multiple teachers are involved or when parents may not reside in the same location. Connect whole classrooms across the country for book clubs. Collaborate with experts such as authors and scientists with classrooms of children. Create connected learning experiences with other students, especially those in older grades. Connect world language classes to classes in other countries. Teachers can hold "office hours" for homework help and asking questions. Create a collaborative space for homework help before or after school or on snow days. Students can meet whenever help is needed, or teachers can create a session that can be accessed on any device easily by those who need it. Use Icebreaker for group work - no more excuses about not meeting for cooperative learning projects! Buildings can collaborate and share professional development with others in their own district and beyond!

As students add contributions, their work will show on your project dashboard; you will see the student name and statistics on student contributions. Add notes and provide feedback to students from within your dashboard. Storillo includes several videos in their help section that provide step-by-step information on getting started and using this resource in your classroom.

Create digital materials for teaching and learning about vocabulary with Wordstool. Create an account as a teacher or as a student. Use your teacher account to browse and find vocabulary sets or create your own. Vocabulary sets include word cards that feature example sentences, pronunciation, translations, images, and more. Create sets and build folders to organize materials by topic or teaching unit. Once built, use sets to provide vocabulary practice with five different activities. Free accounts allow educators to assign topics to individual students and track their progress, including tasks completed and the number of errors.

tag(s): flash cards (38), vocabulary (231), vocabulary development (87)

In the Classroom

Share Wordstool with students and ask them to create an account for use with any new vocabulary. Use during science lessons to build knowledge of new terms, during social studies activities to enhance understanding of words such as sovereignty by including examples and images, or reading novels such as those written by Shakespeare that may consist of unfamiliar language. At the end of your teaching unit, ask students to share their learning using tools found at Adobe Spark for Education, reviewed here, and include their new vocabulary terms. For example, have students create an infographic sharing science vocabulary or retell events in history by creating a short video that includes highlighted vocabulary.

Mote is a Chrome browser extension that allows you to add voice notes to Google Documents, Google Classroom, Google Slides, and Sheets. It also supports transcription in over twenty languages. Begin by downloading Mote from the Chrome Store and allowing it to install on your browser. Once installed, click the Mote icon when in Google documents to record up to thirty seconds using the free version. Students use the play button to listen to recordings within their document or view the text within a card created by Mote as a comment. Use your account activity page to monitor student engagement and see which students listened to or viewed your notes. Students also have the option to provide reactions to your messages. If students don't have the Mote extension, they receive a link to the Mote website to listen to the audio recording. This is a terrific resource to help your struggling writers and special needs students.

In the Classroom

Use Mote to make feedback more personal for students and hear voice intonation instead of just written text. Use this extension to share positive feedback on student work and point out specific areas of improvement. Share Mote with your peers to use when collaborating on any document as a replacement for written comments. Mote is an excellent way to provide missing in-person connections with students during remote learning by allowing them to hear your voice instead of viewing impersonal comments. Use Mote when teaching ENL/ESL students to help students who are not proficient in English by enabling them to see comments in their native language.

In the Classroom

Make a flipbook of a presentation as an engaging alternative to a web page or PowerPoint. Share classroom information such as rules and expectations in an easy to read format. Use for a great way to bring digital storytelling upfront in your classroom. Make photosynthesis a story instead of bits of equations and information. Portray a period in time in history or create books of different political or societal opinions. Create a flipbook with the viewpoints and personalities of characters in a story. Practice a different language by creating a themed flipbook. Lower grades can combine writing into a class flipbook to be shared online or read aloud. Any written assignment can easily be re-visioned as a flipbook! Make your literary magazine a flipbook or build new poetry collections during poetry month. Share all your flipbooks on individual laptops, or the interactive whiteboard or projector. Create simple flipbooks of Dolch words for beginning readers.
