Would like to see the list pruned to those software programs and applications in an age-appropriate list for students to use to represent/explore their own learning.  Animation makers, not consumers.

Michael Gorman shares 15 tools located at ReadWriteThink that work with Language Art classes, providing short descriptions. An additional 42 tools that are available on the website that focus on Language Arts (although some of them would work with other courses, such as the Timeline, Venn Diagram, K-W-L Chart, and ReadWriteThink Webbing Tool, so teachers across the curriculum may want to also check them out.

In addition ReadWriteThink has 8 mobile apps (and seven work on iOS and Android, 1 in iOS only). These apps include three focused on poetry: Acrostic, Diamante and Themes Poems as well as Alphabet Organizer, Trading Cards, Venn Diagram, Timeline and Word Mover.

If you have  not checked out ReadWriteThink is it worth checking it out. To go directly to ReadWriteThink: www.readwritethink.org

Have you seen an RSA Animate video? Are you interested in learning how to make one or better yet, have your students make one? This post provides an in-depth look at how to go about have your students create an animated video that provides them with the opportunity to  practice 21st century skills (quoted from post below):

* collaborate with one another

* synthesize ideas

* create content

* communicate ideas clearly

* use technology

This activity is designed to have your students create content, providing you with materials to use in future classes as well as helping your current students understand the materiial.

The author, Jordan Collier, provides a detailed five-day plan. Day 1 would have you dividing students into groups of three, assign them a section of a chapter in a textbook, and determine the key facts that need to be taught. To read about how to assist them with this and the tasks for Day 2 - 5 click through to the post.

If you're not familiar with "learning management systems" (LMS) they're basically software programs that help teachers administer, document, track, and report class information.  The new service Fishtree takes the idea of a traditional LMS an expands on it in a big way.  Not only does Fishtree cover all the roles of a typical LMS, it also helps teachers differentiate their instruction, incorporate media, and a whole lot more.  It's an awesome learning resource, so, let's check it out!
