Glogster (EDU version) - 4 views

  •  
    Site lets users create online, multimedia "posters" about a desired topic. This site could function for pre-learning at either the essential or generative level, depending upon the content added to the presentation. At the essential level, users could post samples and important terms. At the generative, prompts or questions could be included to promote application of knowledge. The site is reasonably easy to learn and free, and users can include images, text, graphics, audio, or video elements, making for a complete multimedia presentation.

Wallwisher.com :: Words that stick - 0 views

  •  
    Collaborative brainstorming site that can be used for pre-training (asking questions, planning projects, reflecting, etc.) or assessment. Wallwisher is in the generative level of cognitive processing, because participants are challenged to apply and synthesize what is learned. The site is useful for many reasons. It can include multimedia elements, such as images or embedded videos. It is extremely easy to set up and create. It can also be embedded into other sites, where users can add content without visiting the home page.

Prezent It - Create, share and show your presentations online - 1 views

shared by Randy Rodgers on 16 Jan 10 - Cached
  •  
    Very easy to use site for creating online, collaborative presentations (a la PowerPoint). The site offers very little in terms of how-to information, and it is primarily at the generative level of cognitive processing, focusing on creating and applying the tool. However, it is a very simple interface, much like PowerPoint stripped down to the basics. Its advantages are ease-of-use, share-ability, privacy options, and the ability to download presentations.

    Rubistar is a well-known rubric creation site. The site is at the generative level, as users are required to create their own categories and criteria for assessing products. At the essential level, teachers can browse through thousands of rubrics created by other educators to see how they might appear and be applied. The site is useful because it is fairly intuitive to learn and because it leverages the shared products of its members.

Rubric to Assess a PBL and Rubric - 0 views

    Rubric that provides guidelines for the effective creation of a...rubric. The site is definitely at the essential level, providing terminology and concepts only. It is effective, however, because it provides a self-check tool for creating this form of authentic assessment.

Triton/Patterns Fall Symposium 98 Module Three - 0 views

  •  
    This site is at the essential cognitive level, providing an overview of the terms, functions, and processes involved in using Inspiration software (or mywebspiration.com). The site, which is apparently a workshop plan, is plain-looking but effective. Functions in Inspiration are broken down into discrete links, allowing for user-controlled navigation. Each offers a very simple text tutorial, accompanied by a static or animated graphic.

Voicethread 4 Education » home - 0 views

    Great ideas for using Voicethread in the curriculum. This is a very large wiki that covers using VoiceThread in the curriculum. It is a the essential processing level, although the examples given likely prompt visitors to envision VoiceThread at the generative level. The site is particularly helpful due to the abundance of lesson plans and examples, divided conveniently by grade level. There is a best practices page with useful how-to tips and a discussion about how to prompt students to comment. Great resource!

Digitally Speaking / Voicethread - 0 views

    This is a page from a broader wiki on the subject of digital storytelling that specifically addresses VoiceThread. It is at the essential level of cognitive processing, providing a large overview of the process of creating a VoiceThread, its purposes, assessment, and more. Although it is a bit out-dated in format (lots of scrolling), the number of examples and resources (including sample rubrics, student handouts, etc.) make it one of the better sites for using VoiceThread in education I've found.
