Gooru is a free, online learning management system for classrooms. Use their Learning Navigator system to assess and assign content based on student knowledge. The Learning Navigator provides information on student knowledge then provides a course of learning. Content is continually adjusted and monitored to match student growth and engagement. Use your teacher dashboard to assign and customize learning using Gooru's content. Content is provided for math levels from preK through calculus, English/Language Arts from preK through 10th grade, and middle and high school science and social studies. Students engage with assigned materials using the code generated when adding content.

tag(s): differentiation (53), homework (39), Teacher Utilities (77), tutorials (46)

In the Classroom

Use Gooru to differentiate instruction based on students' current performance. Many students are motivated to learn at their own pace using online tools, and Gooru is an option providing lessons in a different format than currently available. If not using Gooru whole -class, it provides many options for helping and enhancing learning for individual students, use for homework, or as a temporary option for providing instruction to home-bound students. Enhance classsroom technology and provide additional support to student learning by asking them to use Dropr, reviewed here, to build a digital portfolio of their learning process. Include images, videos, and written work within the portfolio.

Students earn "Internet gold" awards as they complete assignments.

tag(s): assessment (124), bookmarks (51), quizzes (91), social networking (88), Teacher Utilities (77)

In the Classroom

Because Pindex is specifically for educators, this site makes it easier to find and save information for classroom use. Collaborate with other teachers in your building or subject area to create boards with teaching resources. Take advantage of Pindex's quiz feature to create boards for any topic and assess student learning. Use Pindex as part of flipped learning lessons or as a learning center. Extend learning after students complete quizzes using Synth, reviewed here, to have students discuss information shared on the site. Synth is similar to Twitter, but is an audio resource. Have students share a short audio response related to their learning, then Synth threads all student discussions to create a podcast to share.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

Crio is a tool for building interactive, online lessons designed to foster higher-level thinking skills. Use the drag and drop features to start a lesson from scratch or choose from one of three model lessons. Add audio, text, video, and other interactive content to your activity. Crio offers several different options for question responses, including multiple choice and short and extended response. After building your lesson, publish and share with students via social media links, embed, or provide a direct link to the URL. Student work automatically saves during use. Be sure to watch the demo video for an overview of all of Crio's features.

tag(s): assessment (124), Teacher Utilities (77)

In the Classroom

Use Crio for planning and distributing lessons to students. Because lessons save automatically to your account, it makes it easy to reproduce and adjust activities for different classes as needed. Consider creating several lessons to use as a "ready to go" bank for days when a sub is in the classroom or when interruptions to your routine require a quick change of plans. Use Crio to create flipped lessons to introduce new units to students or as a wrap-up and review of content. Work together with peers to develop units for any subject.

The site supports images up to 5Mb with 2.1Mpx resolution. Follow the directions to adjust areas to include or delete. After removing the background, continue designing your image by adding a colored background, uploading an image, or saving as transparent. When complete, download to your computer.

tag(s): editing (77), images (267), photography (144), preK (281)

In the Classroom

Share with students for use with projects to enhance classroom technology and create and combine images without busy backgrounds. For example, create pictures of presidents, castles, or plants for use with any report or on slides for a presentation. Take pictures of students; then remove the background. Save images for use throughout the year in hall displays, bulletin boards, on reward certificates, etc. Add a background to student images as a story starter on historic events, career presentations, or place them as a character within a novel. Modify classroom technology use by having students use an easy website creator like Carrd, reviewed here, where students can upload their image and share their finished story. Introduce a new unit by creating an image using PhotoScissors to place your class in a foreign land. Share that image on FlipGrid, reviewed here, to use as an anticipatory set and ask students to post a video response sharing their thoughts on where they are going and what they already know about the area.

Save the Video converts and downloads videos from several different video hosting sites including YouTube and Vimeo. Paste the video link then choose to download, convert to mp3, or convert and cut your video. One of the most interesting features of this site is the option to download playlists, convert into smaller files, then cut or crop to merge videos into one single video. Convert and cut takes you to a different application to use after downloading the video file to your computer.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): conversions (30), video (262)

In the Classroom

Save the Video provides options for using videos in the classroom that may otherwise be unavailable due to district filters. Take advantage of the site's features to download and convert playlists to create and share content specifically tailored to your needs. For example, find your favorite videos on habitats, create a playlist, then use Save the Video to create a single video about habitats with only the content you choose. Take your videos a step further and modify them using playposit, reviewed here, to add comments and questions onto your video for students to view and answer. Playposit also offers the option for students to add comments. Include your video along with your other student resources within a presentation created using Sway, reviewed here, for easy access to all materials. If you teach younger students, create videos of them sharing information about your topic, then use Save the Video to combine their responses into a single video. For older students, ask them to create their own video using tools found on the site and use Sway to create their own presentation, including videos, images, and text.

ClassroomQ is the digital solution to organizing help with student questions. The premise is very simple - the teacher creates a class code and gives it to students, as students work and find they need help they provide their name and class code along with a comment, and they add their name to the help queue providing the instructor with a list in the order of help requested. If students find they don't need help after requesting it, they use the cancel option to remove their name from the list.

tag(s): classroom management (147), organizational skills (106), Teacher Utilities (77)

In the Classroom

Simplify and organize your time with ClassroomQ. Use this resource during student work time as a simple and quiet way to provide student help in a timely manner. Ask students to create a comment including their specific question to help you prepare to provide them the appropriate help (perhaps that is in the form of help from another student). Use ClassroomQ during review games and have students buzz in using this site and add their answer as the comment. Using it this way helps you know who came in first, didn't answer, or took longer to find the response. ClassroomQ also helps you understand the kind and number of comments created and assess areas where students need more help. Use this information to guide instruction. Consider taking common questions as a starting point for a follow-up lesson and have students complete some research on their own. Ask them to share links to additional help using a bookmarking tool like SearchTeam, reviewed here. In addition to creating and sharing bookmarks, use SearchTeam to add comments to supplement the provided links. As students become more confident in the material, modify classroom technology by asking them to create simple explainer videos using My Simpleshow, reviewed here, not only as a reflection tool but also as a guide for other students with similar questions.

Pique student's interest in upcoming lessons using Tall Tweets to create an animated GIF of portions of your slide presentation. Encourage parent participation and collaboration by tweeting a GIF of classroom activities, including students involved in learning activities (of course, be sure to understand and adhere to your district's privacy policies). If you teach older students, ask them to tweet out a preview of their upcoming classroom presentations. Use Tall Tweets when working on professional development activities to share successes or upcoming professional development opportunities. Ask students to create Google Slides for any classroom purpose - create slides with different types of animals, share facts about states or countries, or demonstrate math problem-solving tips. Create your GIF from the slides and have students share them onto a Padlet, reviewed here, as a collaboration activity with their peers. Ask students to use Google Slides to organize information to explain an activity, for example, a science experiment, then create an animated GIF from the slides. After organizing their information, enhance classroom technology use and ask them to create an explainer video using My Simpleshow, reviewed here, featuring the steps and science learned in the experiment. Take student learning even further using Wakelet, reviewed here. Ask students to use Wakelet as part of their reflection on their learning experience by including text, images, the slide presentation, and animated GIFs created using Tall Tweets. If students used Twitter to share their GIF, use Wakelet's features to include their Tweet directly into the Wakelet presentation.

In the Classroom

Use Suan to create mixtapes for classroom use in many situations. Create a mixtape with soothing music to play during quiet times or to calm students after active periods. Use this site in music class to put together mixes of genres, composers, or instruments being studied. Find music from different eras or podcasts to create a mix to introduce the period to students. Ask students to create music mixes from their own material shared on SoundCloud as part of a course portfolio. Enhance students' technology use in class by including the URL to their mixtape in a presentation created using Wakelet, reviewed here; ask them to include video, images, and original student work.

In the Classroom

As you introduce this site to students, it is the perfect opportunity to remind students of the importance of providing proper credit when sharing media online. Share a link to Thematic on your class website for students to use when creating video presentations (with proper credit, of course). Ask students to create a slideshow using Renderforest, reviewed here, or other presentation software as a substitute for a written book report or research paper. For example, as students learn about states of matter ask them to find images on a sharing site like UnSplash, reviewed here, demonstrating the different properties and transformation of matter. Have students add text information to their slides and upload their slide presentation to YouTube as a video including background music found on Thematic. Be sure to have students include a slide with credits for all images and music included in their video. On a professional level, use this site to find background music when sharing images from your classroom with parents.
