Edmodo | Where Learning Happens | Sign up, Sign In - 3 views

      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.
    • Rebecca Brink
       
      I agree that it models Facebook quite closely. I saw this as a perk in the light that it was easy for them to grasp how to use.

    I tried using this as a Learning Management System (LMS) a few years ago.  I was introduced to it through a Science Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Institute I attended.  I found it to be beneficial in aiding students with personal responsibility, by having information available at all times to access.  I moved away from using it when Google Documents became a feature for all of our students.  It was much easier to share that way.  We know use Haiku Learning that has many similar features but allows for Google Drive being linked.

      Animoto would be great to use to create visuals for a new topic. I might use this to build background knowledge before reading a non-fiction text.

      Create an avatar - this would be a different way to engage students for a flipped lesson.
    • Melissa Shasteen
       
      The free account does not look like it gives you that much. I worry about using too much different types of programs and overwhelming the students.

      I love animoto and recently used it with a high school class. The students found images depicting Visual Design Principles and then made animoto videos from them. I also made a promotional video for my class. It makes spectacular videos with little work. You upload images or short videos, add text, choose music and Voila!

      You can get free educational accounts for your students. It gives them longer videos. Ask for a promo code at: http://animoto.com/education.

MAKE BELIEFS COMIX! Online Educational Comic Generator for Kids of All Ages - 2 views

    • Melissa Shasteen
       
      For summary activities, I sometimes give students the option to create their own comic strip. Some students choose to pick a different activity because they do not think they are an artist. This would help make everyone feel that they could create their own comic strip summary!
    • Melissa Shasteen
       
      All these adds might be a bit distracting for students.
    • Kristin Lavorato
       
      I am a very visual person, and I had a hard time navigating the page with all of the distracting elements. Students so often like to be able to master something so quickly that if they can't, they may choose to not use this.

      This is a great way to integrate differentiation into the classroom, especially for a tiered assignment. If a student struggles to comprehend plot summary, he or she can use this to demonstrate what he/she understood from the text or there could be additional elements added to up the difficulty level.

      I could use this in my history classes especially for visual learners who want to prove their knowledge using visual examples and creativity
