20 Web 2.0 Sites that do not Require Student Email Accounts

20 Web 2.0 Sites that do not Require Student Email Accounts | ks3humanities | Scoop.it

As we look at Web 2.0 tools we must consider if we can use them with our students in the school. Many school have policies about social media websites, but one we often run into is the need for students to have email addresses. This list provides 20 Web 2.0 sites that do require a student email address to create an account. There is one additional piece of information that we also need to check and that it the policy of the site for students under the age of 13. I have not checked all these sites to see if students under 13 are allowed and the post does not mention this fact...so if you work with students under 13 make sure to check their policy. 

The list is wide-ranging from sources that are great for finding educational resouces to bookmarking/annoting websites to creating animated videos and more. Some may require a subscription for educators.

I have used some and recommend you try out first.

This is so interesting because i can use my student account and putting in  my email is always such a pain!

dustin parks's curator insight, March 9, 2015 12:03 PM

This is so cool because putting my email in all the time is such a pain and I get emails from them all the time.

This is a great video for area/geography. It shows us all of the continents, countries, etc. including Asia. It's a political map, and the mouse sings all of the countries to help students like us understand the world better. It's fun to watch, too!

PBLU.org | Making Projects Click for You and Your Students | ks3humanities | Scoop.it

PBLU – Project Based Learning University – Brought to you by the Buck Institute for Education. If you have asked yourself “How can I create a Project Based Learning course for my students check out this resource. PBLU (in beta) currently has nine project based projects you may choose to use in your classroom. The current projects are focused in ELA and math and range from third grade through high school. Projects include Back in the Day (high school, nonfiction writing), Choose Your Own Adventure (Grade 4, ELA/Social Studies, I Know What You’re Thinking (8th Grade, Math) and Schoolyard Habitat Project (Grades 3 – 5, Science). More projects will be added, and you may make suggestions.
They are also providing a PBL Teacher Series, quoting from the website:
These classes build your skills for implementing high-quality projects. You tailor the learning experience to your needs and interests. In each class, you build a foundation. That’s the "how to." Then you apply what you have learned in your own classroom by implementing the project during the capstone class. That’s the "now DO."
This process may lead to a PBL Teacher Certification.

6 Rules for a Great Story from Barnaby Conrad and Snoopy

Maria Popova's Brain Pickings has once again shared information about rules for great stories, this time from Barnaby  Conrad (author). He responded to the cartoon strip above with six rules. The first is "Try to pick the most intriguing place in your piece to begin."

You may see the other five at her website, and there are also links to advice on writing by Kurt Vonnegut, David Olgilvy, Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac and John Steinbeck.

I had a quick look and some good stuff here.
