  • Put text in the box and create cool word art! It’s free, and it has options like different fonts, colors, directions, etc. The more you use a word, the bigger it gets. Nice for poetry word pools, concept maps, and more.
  • Want an alternative to PowerPoint that you can display online? Try one of these sites.
  • Get your students creating short animated films! Great for plot summaries, predicting, short stories, and more! Featured on major news networks, too!
  • Can’t afford Photoshop or Illustrator? Aviary to the rescue! This site has multiple tools for your graphic needs!
  • Create student-made magazines using a program (like MS Publisher)! It’s not ENTIRELY free. You pay if you want printed copies… Fundraiser?
  • This online video editor is one of the best out there. It can be a bit finicky, though. But, it’s free… so, I can’t complain too much!
  • Create collections of links, highlight right on the page, let students add to your collection, and more! Plus, they’ve got an educator account!
  • Perfect for emailing parents on a weekly basis. Looks good and includes easy add/remove service
  • Yes, Google is taking over the world with its sinister plots and monopolies, but I haven’t found a calendar I like better. I embed it on my website or wiki, attach documents, and send my students to it!
  • Wikis are an easy way to get info out to students. Plus, Wikispaces has a teacher account that gives lots of options for free. Or upgrade for more options.
  • The greatest and easiest way to create a website (if you want your own web address and not a freebie). Get hosting, install, do awesome stuff!
  • This is the most amazing site! There are hundred of speeches made at TED conferences about a HUGE variety of topics. Interesting, too!
  • By far the best (LEGAL) collection of free programs that can take the place of pay-programs! Plus, they review them, so you know what you’re getting!
  • Transcript

    • 1. Cool Tools for Teachers
      Oh, did I mention that they’re FREE?
    • 2. Why bother?
    • 3. Technology is the ultimate carrot for students. It's something they want to master. Learning to use it enhances their self-esteem and makes them excited about coming to school.
      ~ Fifth grade teacher

    • 4. Students in technology-rich environments experienced positive effects on achievement in all subject areas.
      ~ Sivin-Kachala, 1998

    • 5. "Teachers can draw on technology applications to simulate real-world environments and create actual environments for experimentation, so that students can carry out authentic tasks as real workers would, explore new terrains, meet people of different cultures, and use a variety of tools to gather information and solve problems."
      ~ Means, Blando, Olson, Middleton, Morocco, Remz, and Zorfass (1993)(p.43)
