The Ultimate Word Search Maker - 1 views

  •  
    Nick Peachey blogs: "It enables you to quickly and easily create your own Word Search Puzzles and embed them into your blog. (To mark answers) Just click on the first and last letters of the words when you find them.

    He warns us: "I would prefer to be able to produce Word Searches that don't have the words included so that students have to think a little more around the topic and mentally revise their existing vocabulary on the topic. " I agree 100%

CogDogRoo - StoryTools - 2 views

  •  
    Gleaned from Carla Arena's collection
  •  
    Alan Levine's list of 50 tools you can use to tell stories, rounded out with examples from him and others.
  •  
    "The Fifty Tools
    Below you will find 50+ web tools you can use to create your own web-based story. Again, the mission is not to review or try every single one (that would be madness, I know), but pick one that sounds interesting and see if you can produce something. I have used each tool to produce an example of the original Dominoe story, plus links are provided, where available, to examples by other people. Please share your own examples or thoughts in the discussion area of this wiki.

    But before rummaging around the toolbox, have you done your prep work? Do you have your story idea or presentation concept outlined, developed? This should be on paper or in a document file or scribbled on the back of a napkin, but do not rely on making it up as you go! If not, go back 2 spaces and do this now. Next- do you have your media assets available, your images, video clips, audio files-- if not go find your media now."
