Blendspace Joins Wikispaces and TES - Premium Features Now Free!

Blendspace Joins Wikispaces and TES - Premium Features Now Free! | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

""Blendspace, formerly known as EdCanvas, is now a part of Wikispaces and TES. The Blendspace service will continue to run as a stand-alone service. The aspect of the merger that has the most immediate impact on teachers is that the premium features of Blendspace will now be free. The premium features allow you to collaborate with other teachers to creation of lessons."

Beth Dichter's insight:

Blendspace is joined Wikispaces and TES and now offers their premium services for free to educators! Why use Blendspace?

* It is easy to organize and share materials.

* The format is visual (which appeals to many learners).

* You pick the topic and you pick the materials: videos, links, images, files, etc.

There are additional features and you may use Blendspace to assess and track student progress. You might consider using Blendspace as a component to introduce blended learning into your class.

This post from Richard Byrne also includes a video that teaches you the basics of Blendspace as well as Flipping and Blending the Classroom.

Here is a new tool (at least to me) that allows you to create online content. In fact, you can get an educator account and have students also create content (but make sure to have permission from parents for students under the age of 13).

You can get an educator account or your school may want to sign-up. School wide features include:

  • Lesson tracking (allowing you to see students progress)
  • Lesson sharing and collaboration
  • Common Core, NextGen Science and custom standards – helping you align lessons

You can easily

  • Add, insert and delete resources from the web
  • Group resources, lessons and organize your students
  • Add questions to videos

Take a few minutes to click through to the website and check it out. You may find yourself creating a new lesson!

Summertime...a time to recharge and to think about what we might do in our classrooms next year (at least for the folks who are now out of school). Have you been considering learning some new tech tools? This website is a great place to start. They have short tutorials on nine "emerging tech tools" and more will be added. The tutorials include:

* Create a Flipped Lesson with TedEd

* Easily Create Private Digital Online Content Discussions with Tackk

* Using Movenote to Create Custom Video Lessons

* Create Powerful Lessons in Minutes with Blendspace

* Remind 101 - A Free Tool for Text Messaging Students

Two more tools are available and you might want to bookmark this site as they will continue to add new tools as they become available.
