Apricot is a neat new free tool for teachers from Free Technology 4 Teachers. The way this works is educators sign up and create a class that students join through a code (i.e ClassDojo). Once the class is created educators can then ask a question, the students respond in real-time, and then their parents get the results emailed to them. Also, parents can join the same class as their child's w/ a unique login code.

Best of all, all of this takes place in Answerables safe interactive environment. Also, Answerables can be used by any curriculum to teach any subject using Project Based Learning, "gamifying"a lesson, and differentiating instruction.

My favorite apps to use in art

Art teacher Lynn Horne's favorite apps to use when teaching and working with students in art. Tools to help educators and students make stuff - for the inventors, creators, builders, writers, and artists out there.


Drawp for School

Drawp for School is an excellent free iPad app for creating digital art. This app has an easy to use interface that allows students draw, paint, color, etc to creating stunning pieces of art. Best of all is the educational portal that allows educators to create/manage student accounts as well as the ability for students to "hand-in" assignments via the cloud. This is a fantastic app to use for any subject or curriculum.

[From Dave Kapuler].


The Art of Storytelling

Here is a site from the Delaware Art Museum that allows you pick a painting (they don't use photos, but the site is so good I decided to include it in this list anyway), write a short story about it, record it with your computer microphone, and email the URL address for posting on a student website or blog. It's extraordinarily simple, and extraordinarily accessible to any level of English Language Learner. No registration is required.

Angle Asteroids

Angle Asteroids is a wonderful free iOS app that helps students learn how to measure angles. This is a fun app that any Math/Geometry teacher can use that has students try to blast incoming asteroids by aligning it to the correct angle from their spaceship. Also, being a part of Sylvan's education series allows for parents/educators to track student progress.

Rr. Alaa Sadik

ResearchGate

Agnitus

This little app includes 46+ Common Core-aligned games ranging from language arts to math skills. Offers summative assessments too.

The Answer Pad

The Answer Pad is one of my favorite all-in-one mobile learning solutions for a classroom. Not only does it allow a teacher to become paperless by doing all testing/assessing on a iPad (or mobile device), it can turn a iPad into a student response clicker system. A educator can use Answer Pad in a number of different ways and push out assignments that they can grade and assess in real-time, which allows them to differentiate instruction, guide instruction, and even flip their classroom.

American History Timeline

American History Timeline is a wonderful free iPad app that focuses on American History from 1770 to Current Events. This interactive has 100s of images and tons of information that can be sorted through. Best of all their are educational games such as Scramble and Matching to help reinforce learning.

Answerables

Answerables is a wonderful new innovative site/game that is perfect for Game- Based Learning (or more accurate Game Based Learning meets Learning Management System). It reminds me of Second Life but geared more toward kids w/ their fantasy/SciFi environment. The game takes place in the 3D virtual world of Answerables on a planet called Proxima, where the native Ansibles (students) encounter an alien race. What makes this so great for education that is the safe/COPPA compliant environment that Answerables provides. This is an ideal place for students to collaborate w/ others to develop their social learning skills. Answerables provides windows (i.e. Second Life) to view the web, go on quests, etc. The student dashboard allows students to track their quests, notifications, events, PODS (Personal Online Development Spaces), and more.

The Best Collections Of "The Best" Pieces Of Art Ever Created

In Ferlazzo's Theory of Knowledge class learn about the roles of emotion, language, perception and reason in art. As part of that, students are looking through pieces of art and writing a short analysis of one they choose. They are going to look through the online collections of various museums, but also a site that shared one person's view of "The Best" pieces of art ever created. This is a similar list of sites that provide images of famous pieces of art. It's an intriguing way to help English Language Learners develop a great vocabulary related to feelings and emotions, plus it creates opportunities for both art vocabulary and art content knowledge. Each site shows a number of images or links on the same page of their selected artworks, and allows the ability to click on them to get an enlarged view. Among The Best Collections of gThe Besth Pieces Of Art Ever Created are these: The Greatest Works of Art; Another site titled The Greatest Works of Art; Best Works of Art in the World; Famous Paintings; The World's 50 Best Works of Art (and how to see them); 50 Most Famous Works posters (this is from a site that sells posters, but does provides nice images of famous pieces of art).

Faces iMake ABC is a wonderful iPad app by iMagine Machine for PreK-KDG/toddlers wanting to learn their letters/alphabet. There are lots of apps that do this but what makes Faces so great is how interactive it is for kids. A user has two choices either to learn the letters or find a letter. The learning part has a kid tap a letter, here it pronounced, and then try to put together a picture associated w/ that letter. The find a letter is a great way for kids to associate words w/ a letter such as D for Dog. [Written by dkapuler on Oct 01, 2013].

AlphaTots

AlphaTots is one of my favorite iOS apps I've come across for learning about the alphabet. Having a 3 yr old in Preschool and a 2 yr old daughter this is an app that is going to get quite of bit of use in our household.

Both people participate in the chat and can share live experiences such as watching the same YouTube video, etc. A unique feature is the ability to search for people based on similar interest and then start video chatting right away.

There is a wonderful Red Riding Hood interactive story app for kids. I downloaded this for my boys and they are loving it. They can either have the story read to them or read along w/ it while interacting w/ the book. Also, there is a nifty little note taking app (MetaNotebook) which is worth a look for taking notes and then sharing w/ others or printing.

Voices Across Time was created to help teachers harness the power of song as primary source to supplement any secondary American Social Studies, Language Arts, and Music curriculum. The project has three components (use the buttons at the top of this page to find out more about each): a Teacherfs Guide, the Summer Institute for Teachers, and Lesson Plans and other Teaching Resources. Also found at this site is an index of Timely Tunes; songs appropriate to enhance discussion of any major holiday or historical anniversary. Songs have a special power to express what words alone cannot: hopes, fears, dreams, love, hate, anger, pride, aspirations, and disappointments. Because songs span the breadth of human experience, they are uniquely able to communicate across time and space the beliefs and ideas held by their composers, performers and listeners. Yet textbooks are silent.

A-Z Directory of ~3,000 Online Learning Tools!

Choosing tools is a daunting task. No actually, it’s completely overwhelming! Did you know that there are over 3,000 collaboration tools online right now? And new ones are showing up almost every day! For example, check out this awesome tools list we found that’s being managed by a UK research institute. Everything you’ll ever need to become an online collaboration tools guru is here, with many of the tools being free. But we are only interested in a tool if it fits certain human behavior patterns for getting together and collaborating. We are more interested in its ability to support ‘interactionEthan to manage ‘informationE(although that’s important too). So, we have some principles that we abide by when choosing tools. This helps us (and you!) to narrow down the rapidly growing conglomerate of online tools.

Tinyurl.com audio

Here you can also find out how students can access the audio for thousands of movies to help them develop their listening skills.

Tinyurl.com word games

If you are more interested in fun you can find a collection of really nicely designed word games here:

ANIMATION TOOLS

Animation Tool

from http://nikpeachey.blogspot.com/2008/10/text-to-speech-movies-for-efl-esl.html

A wonderful tool that combines the power of animation with text to speech technology and enable us to create simple animated movies with our students. These are great for contextualizing language and helping our students to practice dialogues. They are also very simple to create.

Animation Tools needing Supervision


Comics and Online Animation

Comic Master is is a site the excellent blog, iLearn Technology. This site is similar to most online comic creators such as Pixton or Toon Doo. As w/ other similar sites, CM has a nice drag-n-drop user interface w/ lots of items to choose from.


Bitstrips

A comic creation site that is one of the better ones to come around in a long time. Like most similar sites a user selects a character, background, object, and then provides the text, but what separates this from others is there is an educational portal similar to Toon Doo Spaces. This is great for teachers as there are built in filtering, content approval before posting, and private hosting. Check out Bitstrips for creating comics in the classroom!


"What Makes Me" Is A Neat Site

At What Makes Me, you can create a "cube" using photos, video, and audio (you can easily grab them off the web our upload your own). Your creation is supposed to be a representation of "you." It's from the Australia Council for the Arts and, theoretically, it's supposed to just be for Australians. But they invite people to make as many cubes as they want, so won't be too concerned if non-Aussies contribute. No registration is required, other than your email to save your cube.

Answer Garden

Answer Garden is an excellent new tool for a person's website. AG is a gadget that can be embedded into a site (similar to a poll) that people can use to answer questions that you create. These answers then get displayed in a visual brainstorming/tag cloud view with the top choices standing out as more bold and bigger font (think Wordle). Answer Garden can be used by teachers to get feedback from students, bloggers for self analysis, etc.

ADELEX ANALYSER (ADA)

ADELEX TEXT ANALYSER tool is part of the research carried out by the members of the ADELEX team at the University of Granada. It enables the user to analyze the lexical difficulty of written texts in English on the basis of information contained in a 7,000-word frequency list drawn from the British National Corpus, Bank of English and Longman Corpus Network databases. Its two versions (English and Spanish) attempt to provide a more accurate and updated way of analysing texts, by using frequency bands of up to 7,000 words. Once students learn how to use all of these, they should be over the “Minimum Threshold LevelEneeded for fluent, independent reading. The analysis divides this list into 7 bands:

  • Band 1: from word no. 1 to word no. 1,000
  • Band 2: from word no. 1,001 to word no. 2,000
  • Band 3: from word no. 2,001 to word no. 3,000
  • Band 4: from word no. 3,001 to word no. 4,000
  • Band 5: from word no. 4,001 to word no. 5,000
  • Band 6: from word no. 5,001 to word no. 6,000
  • Band 7: from word no. 6,001 to word no. 7,000

ANNOTATION PROGRAMS

Layers

Layers is a new site that lets you annotate any webpage. Two especially nice features it has are (1) you can add photos and videos to your annotation by just including the url address and (2) you can see how other people who are also registered at Layers have annotated the same page. Other programs that can easily annotate webpages are listed on Best Applications For Annotating Websites. Many are ideal for students to demonstrate reading strategies on the Web, just as they use real Post-Its in the classroom.

Crocodoc

Crocodoc is a new application that lets you upload any document - Word, PowerPoint or PDF - from your computer or the Web, and then it can be "marked-up" with a virtual highlighter or sticky notes. No registration is necessary. You're given a unique url for the document, and then the people you share it with can annotate it. It's a very simple service to use. See more at Best Applications For Annotating Websites.

Layerpad For Webpage Annotation

Layerpad is the newest addition to Best Applications For Annotating Websites list. After registration, you can make comments on the site, and see comments others have made. In that way, it's similar to Blerp. However, Layerpad doesn't let you position the comments in different places around the page, which limits its effectiveness as a way for students to show that they're using reading strategies.

However, this link added to Ferlazzo's U.S. History page will lead you to a series of links to short interactive Flash exercises that should be accessible to Intermediate English Language Learners.

ARK on Ararat or in Iran?

Apollo 15 astronaut James Irwin led multiple expeditions to Mt.Ararat in search of Noah's ark. If found, it would likely be the greatest archaeological discovery in history. Tragically, Irwin died of a sudden heart attack in 1991, with his quest to find the ark unfulfilled. Now his widow, Mary Irwin, is convinced she and her husband were searching on the wrong mountain. In her new book, "The Unsolved Mystery of Noah's Ark" (West Bow Press), she reveals her findings after 20 years of painstaking research following her husband's passing.
