In the Classroom

Learn how to incorporate podcasting in the classroom by viewing the archive of the OK2Ask: Podcasting 101: Using Podcasts in the Classroom webinar available here. As an easy introduction to podcasting, ask students to create an audio recording of a read-aloud book, a story they created, or the morning announcements. Upload their podcast recording and share it on your class website or with parents. As students become familiar with creating podcasts, use this tool for several purposes, such as discussions of current lessons learned in math, an explanation of a science experiment, or a day in the life of a historical character. Extend learning by embedding or linking student podcasts as part of a larger multimedia project created using a webpage creator such as Webnode, reviewed here, or add a link within a timeline created using Canva's Timeline Infographic Templates, reviewed here.

In the Classroom

Use Pinecast in a variety of ways in your classroom. First, let students become familiar with how to create audio files by practicing creating and sharing voice recordings of read-alouds. Then, as students become familiar with this tool, use it as a simple tool for uploading and sharing audio productions. For example, ask students to use Pinecast to record interviews with parents or other family members. For example, when studying immigration, ask students to record the story of a family member who immigrated to the U.S. Include student-created podcasts as a link within larger multimedia projects such as those created using Sway, reviewed here, or within an interactive map project made with Google My Maps, reviewed here.

Explore your creative side with the many kinds of music and art-themed games offered on this site. Doodle, practice drawing, or create a bonsai tree using options for colors and size of your tree. Hover over any of the thumbnails to see the game title, then select to access and play. Some games take players offsite; previewing games before sharing them with students is always suggested.
This site includes advertising.

In the Classroom

Before assigning games with students, use your whiteboard or a screen recording to demonstrate how to avoid ads found on the site. It is also helpful to add a short tutorial for some games to get students started, as most games do not include instructions. Select games on this site, and others, as part of an arts center that features music, art, and drama games and activities. Curate your resources into one place to make it easier for students to find and access them using Wakelet, reviewed here, or another curation tool. Instead of sharing several links onto computer devices, share a link to the Wakelet collection that includes all your resources.
