Some Groovy Web Tools in the Classroom

  1. 1. http://flavors.me/jessmcculloch Playing On The Internet Some groovy Web 2.0 tools and ideas for using them in the classroom
  2. 2. search-cube.com
  3. 3. Ideas for using Search Cube • Search Cube shows image, video and websites in the results so you could get students to focus on one type and look for those results - as in, check the image results first. They would then have to move the cube to find the images. • Students could compare how many images and videos were presented compared to text based web sites. To find out what the result is before clicking on it, you just hover over it and a description will show up beside the cube as to what it is and where it is from. • Because of the ability to see a description of the website, students can see whether or not their search term is giving them the sorts of results they are after, and they could then discuss how they could change their search terms to get different results.

  5. 5. Ideas for using Spezify • Students could be given the task to create a favourites page for a particular topic or project they are working on and then explain to the teacher or their group why they have selected the sites they did • Students could make sure they give their online work (images, blog posts, etc) a very specific tag, then search that tag and see how their work displays, and even take a screenshot of it for their blogs or portfolios.
  6. 6. www.sodasnap.com
  7. 7. Ideas for using Soda Snap • Students could take photos of their classroom or their work and send it to the teacher with some comments - or even email it to a student in a partner class. • The descriptions or comments that students write for the images could be in any language - there may be a specific topic happening in the class and so students need to tailor their images and descriptions to that. • Students could use these images to add to a reflective learning task - they could show their work at different stages with different comments. • Soda Snap could be used to create a visual diary of a trip or just of daily life.
  8. 8. www.photosynth.com
  9. 9. Ideas for using PhotoSynth • Students could ‘synth’ their classroom and give a partner class a 3D tour • You could synth student work that is stuck to the walls to make a 3D online gallery for the world • Students could synth any place and then have to describe it or use it as a writing prompt • Students could synth a single object and share it with a partner class by embedding it into a wiki etc
  10. 10. www.woices.com
  11. 11. Ideas for using Woices • Students could create a guided tour of any place in the world in whatever language they are studying • Students could create an interactive excursion experience for another class or school – students in Japan could create a tour or excursion of their town for kids in Melbourne to experience • Students could create a treasure hunt with clues for other students at their school.
  12. 12. www.cloud-canvas.com
  13. 13. Ideas for using Cloud Canvas • Images are exported to Google Docs so could be created and then used for collaborative story writing • Students could create an interactive activity for classmates – hiding answers etc
  14. 14. www.dvolver.com
  15. 15. Ideas for using Dvolver • Students could create a movie instead of doing a class talk. • Students could interview each other through the characters • Students could create a movie to introduce a concept to others
