January 2013

Assessment of the tools.
I use a lot of tool in the classroom. The ones that the students enjoy working with are Edmodo (ease of use, feels like facebook to the kids), Google App (save all their work in one place,make ppt,collaborate), Go Animate (kids can show their creative side), Stupeflix (ease of use), Prezi (easy to use), iMovie, ShowMe, Educreations (both of these used on an iPad), Glogster ( easy for the students to make an electronic poster) , Dropbox, ActivInspire, Popplet (mind map), Skype (students like to hear from someone other than their teacher once in a while), BrainPop, Near Pod, Sky View, Google Earth, Class Dojo (classroom management), Splashtop (use to project my desktop), Apple TV and many more. The one I stopped using was xtranormal. Earlier it was O.K then the themes and characters were not very appropriate for my 6th grade students.
I woulds like to try many more tools but the biggest issue has been time.
