This is another FREE tool that can be used to help students sum up the information they learned into a neat little package.  It seems to be relatively easy to use and creates a wonderful product.  Let us know if you want to create a lesson around this type of product and we will be happy to help you!

EdSurge is releasing their top 20 "S'Cool Tools" for 2013 and this list provides us with the tools from 11 - 20. The range of tools is wide. A quick explanation on some are below with more information in the post as well as links to each of them.

* NewsELA is a website that provides students access to articles written at different lexiles, starting with Grade 3 or 4 and moving through Grade 12. It is free and you can create a classroom account and also assign articles to be read. Some (but not all) of the articles have quizzes attached that ask questions based on Common Core and you will be able to see the results. Questions are different for each reading lexile.

* EdWeb is a professional and social networking that provides a wealth of resources including free webinars. It is a great tool to help improve teaching and learning.

* Timelapse provides you a look at what is happening based on satellite photography taken over the last 30 years.

Click through to the post to explore these tools and seven others...and stay tuned for the release of the top ten!

This picture shows how social media has developed over the years. It mentions how many people thought that social media was started with facebook, when in reality it was really started by other projects that you can see above. This picture/concept shows the differences between which sites took off and which didn't, depending on our cultural preferences.
