  • This session is about great places to find 'stuff' that you can use in the classroom, add to your learning management system, incorporate into existing courses or simply send to learners via email. There are also some interesting tools to enhance your current teaching strategies and help to make some of the 'boring stuff ‘we have to teach, more engaging for learners. And sometimes its just about having some fun. :-)
  • What does it mean to be a 21st century teacher?
  • LORN is a gateway to online training resources...It's like a 'Google' for learning objects(click here for definition). LORN allows teachers and trainers to access more than 2,500 quality, copyright cleared, (mostly) free online learning resources from repositories across Australia. Following are some examples of what you can find, however why not go straight to the LORN website and search for yourself!Drive a Forklift (Have a go at Task 3: Pick up, Move and Stack a Pallet)Develop a Business Plan (rural environment)Maintain workplace safety - Deal with an emergency
  • YouTube is a video sharing website which allows users to locate existing videos as well as upload their own. There is an amazing amount of instructional material including an Education section. (If your organisation has firewall issues with YouTube, try TeacherTube.) Examples of what you can find on the YouTube website are:How to use a bandsawPutting out a grease fire safelyActivating Yeast for Wheat BreadAnd if you teach a subject that requires an understand of Maths, have a look at MathATube.
  • LiveBinders allows you to collect resources from the web and then organise them as you would in a binder..neatly, with tabs. The idea is that it puts everything in one place…with a single web address which you can then email or add to a website or online course. If you’d like to see an example of somebody else’s binder, check out ‘21st Century Education‘ or ‘Copyright free/ Public domain images‘ (Note that you navigate the different areas of the ‘binder’ using the tabs across the top). The video tutorials will help you get started but try doing a simple search to unearth many ready-made resources.
  • SlideShare is a site where you can find other people's Powerpoint presentations on almost any topic. You can also use it to upload and share your own, as well as add audio to make a ‘webinar’! It is best to do your own searching but some examples are:'Elearning on a Shoestring'Death by PowerPoint. :-)
  • Flickr is a wonderful place to find photos for your Powerpoints, handouts and online courses. Get started by simply putting a search word into the site...but keep in mind that you must only use those which have a creative commons license…and attribute them accordingly. It’s explained in detail in How To Search & Credit Properly-Licensed Photos On Flickr. Some useful resources are:Videos - 'Photo sharing in Plain English', and 'How to use FlickrCheck out the Flickr FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)7 things you should know about...Flickr(this is a PDF document)marleman2001, j**3
  • What about a simple online 'whiteboard' for....well....anything! A wiki is a website that allows the easy creation and editing of one or more web pages via a web browser. This video explains the concept of a wiki, and WikiSpaces is one which is frequently used. This site is a WikiSpace.Get started - with this videoMore resources50 Ways to Use Wikis for a More Collaborative and Interactive ClassroomAn inspiring essay on Writing Wikipedia Articles as a Class Based ActivityBasic Principles of making a wiki work in educationmarleman, j**3
  • QuickTopic is a simple little tool, but make a big difference to communication! QuickTopic' is a 'single topic web forum that's also fully email-enabled. You can start a topic in 10 seconds, and participants can use just email to participate, or they can use the web board, or both as the need arises. This tool makes communication easy and prevents the situation where a multitude of emails flick back and forth in a discussion, and end up entangled in everyone's In Box.
  • Wiggio is a free tool which helps with the management and communication amongst groups. You can share and edit files, manage a group calendar, poll your group, post links, set up conference calls, chat online and send mass text, voice and email messages to your group members. Resources: You can take a Test Drive to see what Wiggio is like, and check out the Tutorial to get started. The FAQ is also a good source of information.
  • MyStudiyois about creating interactive quiz content for a website, blog, learning management system etc. Simply add your own content to the quiz templates and create a customized quiz - then copy and paste a few lines of HTML into your website and you’re ready to go! If you have any questions, try the FAQ. otherwise go straight to Create a Quiz.
  • ImageChefcreates customisable graphics and images which can be downloaded to your computer, ready to add to emails, websites etc So next time you need to tell your students that their assignments are due, or that they have only 4 days left to get their work reports in, use an image!
  • FlipText is a site that allows you to 'flip' any text! Useful in emails for getting the attention of students, or adding to your online course just for something different. Anything non-boring means they are engaged!
  • MakeBeliefsComix- it’s only a simple little tool but instead of emailing your students to remind them when their assignment is due, you could email them a comic strip that says the same thing…but the message would definitely be more memorable!:-)
