Photo Pin : Add Photos to Your Blog Posts

Photo Pin : Add Photos to Your Blog Posts | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

PhotoPin helps bloggers find photos for their blog and makes adding them to their post fast and easy.
Just search for any topic using the search box (ex: passion, puppies, etc.), preview the photo, and click "get photo" to download the photo as well as the proper attribution link. If you prefer to pay for the photo rather than linking to it, the results at the top will take you to a partner stock photo site where you can buy the photo (currently fotolia).

This is a great resource, especially if you are a beginner at using ActivInspire. I also love that they included Promethean Planet, a website where you can download FlipCharts that are already created!

Phraseology: iPad App Basics | Wandering Academic | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

Writing apps are a dime a dozen. It isn’t often I come across a noteworthy writing app because most are so similar in design and feature set. One is pretty much as good as the other, and can be interchanged depending on your particular workflow – Evernote, Dropbox, iCloud, what have you.

Video Game Design

Video Game Design | New Web 2.0 tools for education | Scoop.it

Welcome to this online resource for video game design in the classroom. My hope is that my own sharing out of our science-based video game design project will inspire you to consider doing the same for your students, moving them from the role of "player" into the role of "creator." The main project overview for our gaming unit available for download, if you need inspiration. (see below). There is also a resource page with links and more downloads. -- Kevin Hodgson, Sixth grade teacher, Norris Elementary School, Southampton, Massachusetts, USA

Thanks for the mention!

I'm EssayTagger's creator and we need all the help we can get the word out to teachers!

Two quick updates:
- We've extended our Open Beta feedback period to Feb 10th so more teachers can try us out while we're completely free.

- Early subscribers (commit before Feb 10th, 11:59pm CST) will get their first month for $1.

Thanks again and let me know what you and your readers think of the grading app!
