One of the common obstacles to using many Web 2.0 tools in elementary school and middle school classrooms is the registration requirement that those tools have. Fortunately, there are many good Web 2.0 tools that do not require registration. Nathan Hall has started to put together a Diigo list of Web 2.0 tools that do not require registration. When I saw the list yesterday it had 60 items. When I looked at the list this morning there were 101 items on the list. Take a look at Nathan's list and I think you'll find some new-to-you tools, I did. Written by RICHARD BYRNE. THANK YOU!

"Look up rhyming words as you write. Instead of leaving what you're writing to find rhymes in a rhyming dictionary, just alt-click (or option-click) on the word you need a rhyme for and select from a pop-up list of suggested rhymes."
Creating presentations and slideshows is one of the needed skills for both teachers and students. Unfortunately many teachers still find it hard to arrange data into a catchy slideshow to share with students.
Below is a list of some of the best free tools teachers and students can use to create awesome slideshow and presentations. I have already reviewed all of these tools and therefore attest to their usability.
For an ELA twist: have students write about the topic chosen (If I could travel in time, I'd visit...) and/or have them evaluate the artwork based on the subject prompt. How would they interpret it? Which doodles best represent? Have them come up with new subject prompts for Google Doodles.
