inkle » inklewriter | MrAHeard | Scoop.it

Liking this a lot. Interactive fiction and a very simple and easy to use platform for creating branching stories. You can even see your progress as a linked map.

 

Watch the video to see how it works - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LkvLMiGj7w&feature=player_embedded

Just Word Search: Play Online, Print, Make Your Own | MrAHeard | Scoop.it

Nice word search generator. Either play on their website or embed on your own. Also has a number of options like changing grid size, sounds and layout.

 

Here is one I made earlier... http://justwordsearch.com/word_search_1166_ict

Trading Card generator

Trading Card generator | MrAHeard | Scoop.it

Very impressive trading card generator. Choose from a variety of cards eg character, object, place, event and even concept (might be an interesting one for Maths/Science).

 

Allows you to upload your own image and create your own (where you can choose the labels to add in).

 

Can create sets of card (up to 8). Can be saved, printed and downloaded as pdf file.

 

Loads of potential...

This has lots of potential especially researching ideas. Enter in two different feature eg USA and UK and the site draws up a table of features to show you the similarities and differences. Statistical details, images and videos are used as evidence.

 

Some good comparisons can be found although care is needed as some of the evidence may be opinion!

Quiz-Busters Plenary and Revision Quiz from teachers-direct

Quiz-Busters Plenary and Revision Quiz from teachers-direct | MrAHeard | Scoop.it

Modelled on Blockbusters TV Quiz show game (without the music sadly). Takes about 10 minutes to make.

 

Students answer questions related to a topic where they are given the first letter. The first team to make an unbroken path from left-right or top-bottom wins.

 

No scoring involved. Good for revision/starter/plenary. Here is the tune if you are missing it - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7336564/Blockbusters%20-%203.mp3

Allows you to create text style messages on QR codes which can then be read on a reader WITHOUT the need for any wireless signal. Great for treasure hunts in areas where the reception is rubbish.

inFocus.cc | highlight and share your focus on the web

inFocus.cc | highlight and share your focus on the web | MrAHeard | Scoop.it

Very similar to BookmarkQ (see previous Scoopit)

 

Type in your URL then drag and resize the highlighting box over the area you want to highlight. Press the Test it button to test it out then use the Copy URL button to make the link.

 

Works very nicely indeed. Here is one I made earlier - http://infocus.cc/?url=http://www.cricinfo.com&p=1200&b=ie&l=481&t=314&w=324&h=121

 

When you move your mouse over the highlight the rest of the page appears.

Symbaloo

Symbaloo | MrAHeard | Scoop.it

"A great VISUAL ICON webmix in which you can share all your favorite websites easily with parents/students.  No more having to remember urls or copy/paste.  The webmix will show you a nice graphic  (icon) in a button format and will take your audience directly to the website. Since I’ve added symbaloo webmixes my students and parents have commented on how easy it is to get their students on the recommended sites.  (You can choose already made webmixes on the site that may fit your needs or create your own-very easily)"

 

Lots quite interesting and a different way of presenting information. Need to sign up but you can embed the link on your VLE.

This is really addictive and could have lots of great uses in different subject areas. Follow clues on Google Maps to find different locations. Clues can be set at different Zooms and on different terrain features.

 

You can set your own private class area and scores.
