  23. 23. Sharing the sites others have created • You can find out what other Symbaloo users are doing and learn from them using the easy Share and Gallery options. As a teacher • You can create a starter page of Internet sites for your students to use on a project – or your students can create their own. • Symbaloo opens its tiles in a new window so that the original always remains as a reference point. It can be used really well with webquests. • As a teacher you can save your favourite tools so that they are always handy for you to use. • You can use it like I did as an Index post for a number of blog posts you have created around a topic. • This music teacher searches out YouTube videos and Discovery Education information to supplement the classroom content and stores them on a Symbaloo mix • Matt Gomez shows how he manages his Symbaloo account • Use if for collecting typing sites for the students to practise their typing skills. • Sharing appropriate links for assignments, research, additional info related to a topic of study, etc. • Teacher homepage providing students (and parents) with one stop access to a classroom web site, info and/or resources
  24. 24. As a student • Observe this this Grade 7 student showing what she does with (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEls3tq5wIY#t=0) Symbaloo • Electronic portfolio for students to showcase knowledge and/or digital projects (stories, movie trailers, presentations, etc.)
