This site is as simple as the title suggests; convert PDF files to Word documents with a simple upload. No registration is required to use the site. Drag and drop or upload your PDF document to begin the conversion process instantly. After a few seconds of processing time, your word document is ready to download and use. Editor's note: this tool works best with mostly text files, be sure to check for accuracy after converting to Word.

tag(s): conversions (33), worksheets (66)

In the Classroom

Do you have awesome activity sheets, but they need to be tweaked a little to make them work for your classes? This tool helps you save time by editing PDF files in Word to avoid reinventing the wheel. Beware of copyrighted materials, however. Science teachers can take lab activities and refine questions or add instructions as needed for their classrooms. English teachers can add standardized test prompts to preexisting general worksheets to tailor the exercise to suit their state's test needs.

Facilitators also have options for adding contributors, setting a work timer, and setting parameters for the session chat.

tag(s): collaboration (75), graphic organizers (37), iwb (27)

In the Classroom

Ask older students to create a Mural for Education account when collaborating on projects to share ideas and organize information. Have students use Mural for Education to develop storylines that include links and images to tell the story of events in history or retell novels. Ask students to use Mural to create mood boards to share the different works of artists or demonstrate different architecture types. Mural would be an excellent choice as a collaborative tool for large projects to brainstorm ideas, assign tasks, and document progress. Use Mural with students as part of your science experiments to share the steps of the experiment, document hypothesis, and add images and reflections upon the outcomes of the experiment. Mural for Education is an excellent resource for remote learning situations to engage students through the use of interactive content and chat. Use the breakout room option to allow for differentiation and group discussions.

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 (40), branches of government (54), business (46), communication (26), electricity (62), environment (231), financial literacy (94), human body (97), internet safety (113), marine biology (25), native americans (74), photosynthesis (26), social and emotional learning (45), social media (44), world war 1 (55)

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.

Imagine creating visually appealing charts and embedding them into virtually any document you want. Charttt makes that happen. Use the free chart-making tool to present data in nine different formats, then edit your chart to change colors, dimensions, title size and position, and more. Select "Create" to begin, then use the site's dashboard to select the type of chart and edit features such as size and colors. Tip: start by creating a bar chart to enter information easily, then change to your desired type of chart. When finished, select the "Use" icon to find sharing options, including URLs to embed as a link or image, download as a PNG image, or create a shareable card. Registration isn't required; however, it allows you to save charts for later use.

tag(s): charts and graphs (167), data (138), images (253)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the flexible features of this tool to use when collecting and sharing data or when teaching about charts and graphs. For younger students, enter data together to view charts in simple formats such as bar graphs and pie charts to compare and contrast the different features. Use Charttt to create a visual display when collecting data. For example, begin using this tool by polling your class to find out their favorite type of pizza and then enter the data to create a graph to share on your class website. Use the same data in all three included formats to compare and contrast how the information looks based on the type of chart used. Take this same information and have students calculate the percentages and create charts to compare and contrast this information with your original images. Once you and your students are familiar with adding data on the site, use it to enhance student learning by including links within your presentations for students to evaluate and to visualize any data. Create charts to document student reading logs, the amount of time spent on homework, or time spent on community service. Have students include a link or chart image when annotating images using ThingLink, reviewed here, or within presentations created with tools such as Sway, 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.

tag(s): chat (40), parent conferences (22), professional development (236), remote learning (33)

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!

Add or paste text onto your blog. Telescope uses "code blocks' to add information to your blog.

Telescope offers a limited number of themes; find those options in the dropdown box within each code block. Your work is autosaved; when finished, select publish to create the shareable link.

Blooket is a digital review game built for classroom use. Educators create game sets, and students join on their device to play a variety of game options using the provided code. Games include options for solo or group play. Build sets using your own questions or search Blooket's library to find games created by other educators. Save favorite sets to your account for later use, then duplicate sets and edit to fit your needs when ready to play. Blooket also offers the option to import quizzes directly from Quizlet, reviewed here. As students join a game, they choose a Blook, a character that serves as an avatar. When ready, choose the "host" option to begin play by selecting a game mode and following prompts. Some games offer the ability to assign homework, allowing students to complete the game within the selected time frame.
