  1. 1. EDU 364.01 Spring 2012 Cloud Tools & Apps We Like
  2. 2. Pixton• Sean Philzone• Pixton is an amazing web tool that allows its users to make online digital comics which can be moderated by a supervisor.• This tool would be perfect for 5th grade history students.• I liked how simple and easy it is to make the comics and the variety of templates there is to choose from.• I did not like the fact that I would have to pay for Pixton’s teacher account.• I would use this tool by having my students create their own comic page based on an event that took place in the American Revolution. Then I would collect all my students comic pages into one class comic book.• This tool meets ths communication and collaboration standard because its users can create a digital comic which could be shared and commented on by other users.

  4. 4. •Laura Watson•Kerpoof allows studentsto enhance theirimagination and increasetheir creativity.•Children from K through8th grade can participate ineach activity. The websiteis appropriate for allsubjects.•I like how the website isvery child-friendly andpromotes a fun way tolearn. I do not like howthere is a fee to be amember.
  5. 5. •I would use this tool inside the classroom and for homework. During class I will allow each student to create one of the activities as an assessment and a reflection on whether my lesson was understandable. For homework, I will have the children use one of the activities to reiterate the lesson from class. The children will be allowed to use the activities as a study guide.•One of the standards that this website promotes is Creativity andInnovation. The website allows children to expand theircreativity, increase their imagination and exercise their minds.They are able to build new ideas and connect them to existingknowledge.

  7. 7.  Twitter is a highly useful tool for communicating with students, and giving them the ability to comment on lessons. Twitter was founded in 2006 by Jack Dorsey as a social network and microblog. Hashtags (#) and the @ symbol would allow for an educator to follow their students, as well as to tweet a trend specifically for their class.

  9. 9. The Myth and Legends app is a fun,creative application for teachers,students or any creative minds touse to make a story.however, it’s not like writing a storyon Microsoft word. In this app, thestudents ( or whomever) create a“movie slide” of a past myth orlegend. In this movie slide that onewould make; they would choose theirown background (given by this app)and then the background shouldmatch their Typed story on the page.
  10. 10. The Myth and Legends app is a fun,creative application for teachers,students or any creative minds touse to make a story.however, it’s not like writing a storyon Microsoft word. In this app, thestudents ( or whomever) create a“movie slide” of a past myth orlegend. In this movie slide that onewould make; they would choose theirown background (given by this app)and then the background shouldmatch their Typed story on the page.
  11. 11.  Well, the app’s layout is really manageable. It has a very descriptive “About” page, explaining how this is a creative site for people who want to make stories with what the site gives. The site offers a “Create a story page”. It is a blank page, and to the side of this blank page are options of the background you choose, and then characters you choose. They, also have text bubbles to apply to a story, and other random images. Furthermore, underneath the page that you design there is a spot for you to type your story that should match to the image that you create. At the top of the “Create a Story Page” are chapters. Since it is a story that your making, you can do chapters. The first slide for example can consist of nine pages first before it automatically becomes chapter two.
  12. 12.  This app is very fun. It is a creative site already because one can create their own story using what the app provides them with. however, what’s even more fun to this app is when you type in your story to go along with the images you create, you can also record your own voice reciting the story. that isn’t the only epic part to the app, but if you wanted to add your own image as a background to your story you could. Lastly, another one of my favorite aspects of this app is that you can add sounds to the story you create. So say your first slide consisted of a door creaking, then you can apply the “door creaking” sound to that particular slide. And its free!!!!
  13. 13.  The people who would use this app are mostly going to be teachers. There are already stories made that are displayed on this site( they’re really good too), and the creators tend to be teachers. However, I think this is a great project to assign to a middle school level class. I would like to use it in my future as a project for my class. Personally, I think it’s more fun to create a story than to watch a story another person made. Although, on this site there are a lot of elaborate stories that are done really nicely. Also, the stories that are done on the page relate to an actual myth or legend from countries. Hence, the students who watch these slides are learning about a myth or legend about another country. The site to me is really fun. I can imagine a young student enjoying a site like this. They can virtually create any type of story they
  14. 14.  The Myth and Legend app most applies to the Creativity and Innovation ISTE. This is because for this app they need to construct their own story line, add dialogue to the story, sound effects, images, etc. Then, they need to construct it in an organized manner so it is coherent. It is a more creative project because students can use prior knowledge to make their story more exhilarating.

  17. 17. I would use Prezi to teach my studentsMy presentations would have multiple uses such having a do now,defining the topic we would be learning, have a youtube video aboutthat topic, show examples, have sample problems for the students totry on their own, have the hidden answers to those problems as well,and further options such as instructions for activities, or a listhomeworkPrezi meets the second standard which is “Communication andCollaboration” because it allows the user to “communicateinformation and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using avariety of digital environments and media”
