      This reminds me of some of the clicker elements that we have integrated into our schools in the recent years, but sometimes there are issues with this. By having this, we can integrate formative assessment quickly and receive immediate feedback. 
    • Kristin Lavorato
       
      Creating a poll quickly is definitely a point of appeal for teachers, and students can utilize this as well for check-ins after presentations. Not a bad idea for attention grabbers either!

      I have used this with my co-taught US History course and the students love being able to use their phones to give feedback or share opinions.

      We used this tool in a meeting of educators and it worked great. One of my concerns about using this in school is that I wouldn't want to upset any students that did not have a phone or the ability to text.

    I have a sci teacher that allowed her students to use this with their cell phones/ipods during sex ed class. It was used as a means to anonymously ask questions that would usually be very embarrassing in a classroom setting. It worked great and students were able to use their personal devices as learning tools!
  •  
    Another Web 2.0 tool which allows you to create polls. There is a free version, but also some priced versions too. Looks like a very flexible format!
  •  
    A easier way to collect quantitative information anywhere and anytime.
  •  
    This would work great with i-clickers!
  •  
    Poll Everywhere is a great way to allow students to use their favorite piece of technology, their phones! I love using this site to create anticipation guides. Students' initial responses are anonymous, but the results can lead to great discussion.
  •  
    I just took a look - I am wondering if I will be able to post math problems ... would love to be able to use it to ask questions to check for understanding periodically through the class.
  •  
    Glad to see I don't have to buy a complicated clicker system in order to get real-time feedback from my class.
  •  
    This is awesome tool that I plan on experimenting with for some of my classroom workshops. I was exposed to this type polling at a recent training conference that I attended. This will defintly reduce the paperwork.
  •  
    This looks like a great tool for classroom polling. I often place a Keystone question into my power point and the class talks through the correct/incorrect answers & offers strategies on how to approach the questions in the future. This would be a fun way to get everyone involved.
  •  
    Can do real time surveys and quizzes in the classroom. Know if students are understanding the material almost instantly. Like the potential for quick feedback and saving paper.Surveys and quizzes could be multiple choice or open-ended. Even usable in lower grades, probably third grade and up.
  •  
    I've taught high school Spanish, grades 6-12 ESL, and Elementary Ed and I can see that this tool would be usable in all of these situations. Just tweak for the grade level and content. V ery usable with adults as well.
  •  
    Gather anonymous, live responses to a poll/survey via text/cell phone. We recently used this during our retirement luncheon as a way to advertise advice and appreciation to the retirees.  Comments were shared anonymously on the Smartboard for all to see and share!
  •  
    Poll Everywhere allows students to answer questions and share opinions using there Smartphones
  •  
    I've used this tool successfully in the large conference environment. Could be useful for a live online class if you didn't want to compromise screen real estate.
  •  
    We just had this introduced to are departments not to long ago, it's great for simple polls of what the students are thinking.
  •  
    This would be a great tool to use in the classroom if you were taking a survey, asking questions, checking for understanding, etc.  This will give immediate feedback to the teacher or presenter.  
  •  
    Good idea for PPYP? Use for class? Get most current phone numbers!
  •  
    class polls/game shows activities.  Classroom assessments
  •  
    This could be a useful tool for me when giving training "in place" on the warehouse floor to poll or survey students. 
  •  
    Poll Everywhere is the easiest way to gather live responses in any venue... conferences, concerts, classrooms, and company off-sites - anywhere with internet. Seems like a great way to get audience responses to student presentations in class, and it might be great in higher ed.

    I heard a great idea for using Wordle this week. Copy and paste the text of a student's paper. Check to see which words are most predominant. Too many pronouns, unspecific vocabulary ("stuff") or overuse of the same transition words? They should pop right out from the rest of the graphic! Another idea - copy and paste the text of a famous speech - great way to get at the main concepts of the language used.

    Wordle is a tool for generating "word clouds" from text or list of words that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can edit your clouds by adding different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. This is a great tool for priming learning or a before reading activity. It is a great way to introduce vocabulary and teach students the importance of using context clues to decipher word meanings.
  •  
    I have used this very fun activity with my French students. I make a "word cloud" with French adjectives and have students find the antonyms.

    I used this tool with my 8th graders after writing a personal narrative. They pasted it in, along with their name, cut and pasted a bunch of times to make it more prominent in the printed out version. What a great end-of-unit culmination! Very eye-catching display.
  •  
    This tool is a great way to engage students at the start of the class. When a text is a difficult read, contains many terms and specialized concepts, I have my students shout out the different terms or words they found important when pre-reading the materials. This gets them thinking about the content, and they hear terms they did not notice within the text or have not heard before which gets them intriqued to find out what they missed. I have found this activity a valuable tool to start a class as it also raises the instructor's authority in front of the class (because of use of modern technology and out-of-box ideas)

    Word Clouds are graphically interesting and evoke creative ideas. Here's a blog post detailing 8 different systems, including Wordle: http://www.whiteboardblog.co.uk/2011/09/8-word-cloud-makers-for-teachers/

    Had fun with this tool last evening. Used it to create program covers for event. Added title of event, date, etc. then created a personalized cover for each attendee by adding his/her name. I was able to save the cover by taking a screenshot using Jing and then could do final sizing.

    Wordle generates striking word clouds.
  •  
    I could use Wordle to create a word cloud about "Immigration" and "Ellis Island" to use in education programs. I also envision writing an activity that utilzes wordle in the classroom.
  •  
    I've used Wordle in the business world for title pages in Powerpoint, as notes from a brainstorming session and a creative way to cover resource binder. Best of all it's fun to use. I can see using this with my children as a fun way to work on spelling words. What's more fun than making pictures out of words.
  •  
    Critical and collaborative thinking tool
  •  
    I use Wordle to create "word clouds" when teaching vocabulary, especially to middle and high school students. I am able to create my own text or use text from our reading to enhance the vocabulary lesson. Students then create their own Wordles. Very interactive!

    Yes, Wordle is fun! I have made everything from greeting cards to graphics for webpages with it. It seems there is no end to how creative one can get with it as I have seen some really great clouds out there! And I'm getting so many more ideas from the comments here. Thanks all!
  •  
    I've actually used this tool and am happy to be reminded of how useful it is! I used it in a review for a final exam by creating a word cloud of topics/terms that would be in the exam. The students were divided into 2 teams and I wouldn't show them the word cloud until I read the questions. One person was the runner for each group. Once the question was read, the first runner to find the correct answer (term or topic) got 1 point. The students (vocational college students) loved this. This semester I need to add to the cloud because the students beg for more!

    Create word clouds.
  •  
    Fun tool for capture impressions of students on the first day of a class.
  •  
    Make word clouds with text.  Nice to emphase new words / making cover sheets etc.  Nice to think about using bilingually.  For example, in Grade 2 math we could have fun reviewing core vocabulary in two langauges.
  •  
    Wordle can provide a fun way for my learners to make connections between reading and writing.  I would like to try using it as a pre-writing activity to prepare for a summary.

    App for generating "word clouds".

    As a student presentation tool, this is great. My students enjoy a more 'polished' presentation when they can produce it.

      Prezi is a great tool for students that is similar to powerpoint. Unlike powerpoint students can work on a presentation together in different locations. Students can also access the presentation from prezi without using the same computer the presentation was made on or having to save it to a USB. However, the other computer will need to have a internet connection. When creating a presentation, you can create it on the same computer online or off which is nice. A great tool for students to use in group presentation projects!

      This would be a great tool to use for presentations at the health department. It would also be useful in presenting information to the community when doing grant work. Also accessible anywhere. I like that it is different than PowerPoint. Cloud-based: Information is stored and retrieved on many different social media platforms. For students: This would be an excellent way to gain practice and experience in a fun and educational way and prepare them for the workforce.

    Create presentations on the Web. Free version available as well as Student / Educator versions.
  •  
    This is a new way to present information - it seems to be more active on the screen than power point. The nice thing about prezi is that it is free for educators and students and you can create your prezi offline. Prezi's can even be embedded into blogs.
  •  
    Awesome tool for designing presentations. Offers a large canvas that you can design, animate, and add multimedia.
  •  
    A colleague built a course introduction for students in this and I can see that it has lots of potential.
  •  
    This is a great presentation tool that zooms in and out and really helps the audience see the connection between ideas and the 'big picture'. I have yet to use it myself but I've enjoyed watching TED talks that use it.
  •  
    I'm going to have fun with this - thanks Kris!
  •  
    Prezi now has a PreziViewer tool for the iPad. This should be fun!
  •

    Great tool to zoom in on specifics or create a second path of detail. Also allows students to work on presentations from wherever they are located.
  •  
    Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas makes it fun to explore ideas and the connections between them. The result: visually captivating presentations that lead your audience down a path of discovery.
  •  
    This is very cool. I wonder how long it would take to learn. If it is reasonable, it would be well worth it.

  •  
    I can see art, photography and design students enjoying this tool. It seems easy to manipulate and customize with their own work.
  •  
    This looks like an interesting tool to explore. I wonder about the difficult level for untrained ESL students.
  •  
    A collaborative presentation tool that is much more engaging that PowerPoint and that allows students to create presentations online or offline, interact with other students in their own classroom or around the world, and present from anywhere to everyone.  
  •  
    Prezi is similar to powerpoint but with more editing tools and capabilities. It's a nice tool for students because unlike PowerPoint, students can work on a presentation together from any location. The ability to access the presentation from any computer connected to the internet gives it capabilities PowerPoint doesn't have. You could also save the presentation on a laptop or USB. Students can also work on the presentation offline which is helpful if a student doesn't have access to the internet for several days.
  •  
    I use this for presentations in my class all the time! The students love it because it is something different besides just using powerpoint slides.
  •  
    Great alternative to powerpoint; coworker uses and really likes it
  •  
    This can be used instead of powerpoint.  Can be viewed as public and created by anyone with internet.
  •  
    I would use this presentation tool to design lessons that are engaging and interactive; especially time-on-task activities that require focus and application.
  •  
    Prezi is a presentation tool that has to ability to mesmerize K-12 students. I have used it to show the steps students need to complete for projects. This tool can also be used to show relationships between math concepts such as fractions and proportions.
  •  
    A tool I've seen and have wanted to try - now here it is! I hope to use it to create engaging presentations for my new smartboard that can be differentiatied according to the student or group I'm teaching.
  •  
    This can be a great presentation tool. Some of the animations should be used sparingly as they can be very jarring!
  •  
    I was introduced to Prezi last summer and had an opportunity to create a presentation that was used to introduce our PE curriculum to parents on Open House night. Our department received incredibly positive feedback from the parents as the presentation allowed for greater engagement than PowerPoint and I found it relatively easy to embed pictures and video.
  •  
    A cloud based presentation application.  
  •  
    This is a bit of a cheat since I've already been using Prezi. It's a great tool and very intuitive if you've used PowerPoint in the past. The audio narration is easy to add with Audible (also free), and there are many templates provided.
  •  
    Prezi - looks like an interesting tool to try for presentations. Recommended by my son who used in college.
  •  
    Takes presentations to a new level.  Particularly suited to complex topics that involve recursive processes.  Would work well as a means of helping my students better understand the writing process and the research process in our class.

    Great tool to give students another way to share their projects.
  •  
    Animoto is an online video-creator application that is available for classroom use. Sign up for a free educator account that will also allow you to share a promotional code for a six-month subscription for up to 50 students
  •  
    Voice over can be added too so that students can give their videos their own voice. Great for students to create video and share information.
  •  
    Thanks for the share! I saw Animoto utilized for the first time in my "What Students Can Actually Do With An iPad" article. I'm glad you placed this here for me to join!
  •  
    Educators can apply for a free Animoto Plus account for use in the classroom. Its powerful features can be used to create stunning presentations incorporating images, video clips, music and text.
  •  
    My favorite tool so far for content and event sharing. I like that you can get Animoto Plus for free for educators, unlike Photo Peach where you have to pay. It looks amazing, can't wait to try it out! : )
  •  
    I like the social media and mobile options. This will likely become a necessity in many educational authoring tools in the future.

      Awesome, especially for a world language teacher! As an example, I could post a picture and ask students to talk about it/describe it. Great for a fun oral assessment tool. Thanks for sharing this!!

    This tool allows groups to have a conversation around a visual. Very Cool!

    I love this website for online teaching if you have to present a lot of content. I also use it if I have a lot of students who are going to be absent for a particular lecture. This site allows you to upload lecture motes of some kind, and then narrate those notes. Additionally, people you invite to view your presentation can make comments or ask questions within each individual slide. It's a fantastic tool for asynchronous teaching.
  •  
    Great site for interacting asynchronously in many forms.

    This tool allow collaboration over one document. This can be by voice, video or type. Ideas: Art classes, editing, practicing for speeches, science projects, history from those that lived it. Or personal uses such as long distance communication about student's homework with parents.

Use it to for online discussion and collaborative project based learning.

    "Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. " While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

    Resources like Classroom 2.0 are what a lot of my "beginners" would benefit from. A community supported network aimed at easing one into the technology discussion and learning some cool resources along the way. I encourage teachers who want to find some level of comfort with technology to engage it through sites like Classroom 2.0
