    Search for a tutor
  •  
    K-12
    When approached by parents for the name of a tutor, I am sometimes resistant to recommend. I feel that they ask me because they want to be certain that the tutor is the right one for their child. Beanbag is an online search for tutors. TEnd to your students need for digital literacy and have them explore the page themselves or maybe his enables parents to directly contact tutors and do not have to wait to go through the school. The obvious con to this is that the potential for a inept tutor still exists.

X Timeline - 0 views

    Create your own timeline and publish to your blog or website
  •  
    7-12
    With plot diagrams becoming a thing of the past. Students can now use timelines instead to outline the plot of a story. There is rarely one clear climax or one moment of resolution. Now students can explore plot further using timelines. One drawback is that it seems that these timelines are most popular for factual information. For ELA, this can be done as a pre-reading strategy, but the plot outline would be for fictitious stories.

    K-6
    This can be used for any subject area for young children. There are resources for teachers as well-including lesson plans. The possibilities are endless. This is another site that would be great for original works or even fan-fiction. One con is that if a student is just emerging in computer literacy, they will need a lot of direction in navigating the page initially.

    Online gradebook and more
  •  
    If you haven't looked at this site in a while, it's worth another look. Appropriate for all grade levels. This is a free online grade book. Recently they have added more sophisticated communication tools, class calendars, the ability to upload files and much more. The discussion feature could double as literature groups or Socratic Circle. The one downside to this is if you do not wish for students to have access, as soon as you print them out a progress report, they have their student code and can get online and check their grades at any time. This could be difficult in the instance that students and/or parents are wondering why this person's project is graded and theirs is not.
    Check out the new wiki feature.

    This is an online resource for lesson preparation.
  •  
    This site is accessible by all, but if you want to unlock all that it has, you must purchase a subscription. There still is a lot to be accessed for free though. I really like the fonts that they use. Check out their holiday lessons. They teach the history of holidays-such as Valentine's Day. The Valentine's Day activities have been very interesting to my ninth graders over the past few years. You may be surprised to find out all that you don't know. K-12

    Take a lengthy URL and make it more manageable.
  •  
    This is a teacher web-resource for all grade levels. Have you ever found that the URLs for your work can be very lengthy? I know we've all had those days in the computer lab where students are intermittently shouting "it's not working!" Save yourself the aggravation and make it shorter and more manageable. The possible con is that your tiny url may not be representative of the page itself-depending on availability. Enter your URL and see for yourself. 5-12

Xtra Normal - Movie Maker - 0 views

  •  
    This website is different than many that I have come across. It allows the user to choose characters, backgrounds, etc. and the dialogue. The website then takes the text and matches it up with the cartoonish characters mouth and creates a movie for you. This could be a great option for classrooms that do have the budget for digital cameras.

    This could be used in any grade level. however a greater amount of training would be required for younger grade levels.

    Getting files into the right format is a big deal in video production. Many formats are not accepted in the software we use (adobe premiere , etc.). Before importing some files may need to be converting to an adobe friendly format. Zamzar allows users to upload the file and will send them a copy in their email.
