Blog Creation Resources


Other Free Resources

  • – Allows narration of photos.
  • Wordfoto – iPhone app to make “tag cloud” like photos from words.
  • Mentormob – This site allows people/educators to create 4-step learning playlists. This enables teachers to provide students with resources without the extra visual distraction of having to search for it themselves or see related content (such as in Youtube) since the resources show up within the MentorMob framework. You can even assign different playlists to different groups of students for differentiation, create challenges for each resource (ex. see how many words you can identify in the following clip), and create pop quizzes that can be analyzed. The playlists can be embedded in the teacher’s blog, allowing a ‘one-stop-shop’ for resources across the web (or uploaded from your computer).

Tools for learning/ Reinforcement (better title?)

  • – classroom management tool, that you can put on a large class screen, iOS product, laptop, etc. Awesome reserouce for quickly tracking, rewarding and reminding classes about learning behaviors. EX: remember to speak English, etc. You can edit the behaviors you want to reward. It works best for beginner or younger students.
  • – according to the website, the tool has two goals: “making classrooms more interactive and giving students an opportunity to voice their confusion anonymously” – if you know about clickers in the classroom, then you can see this is a free alternative that makes use of the students’ Smartphones rather than having them buy clickers – I think the clicker makers have just been put out of business!
