Free Technology for Teachers: Help Students Start Stories With Word Mover

Free Technology for Teachers: Help Students Start Stories With Word Mover | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This afternoon during the technology smackdown at Teaching & Learning conference in Gaston, North Carolina Julian Scott Wilson reminded me about Read Write Think's Word Mover iPad app. I wrote about the app last year, but until today I didn't realize that it can also be used in your web browser.

Word Mover is designed to help students develop poems and short stories. When students open Word Mover they are shown a selection of words that they can drag onto a canvas to construct a poem or story. Word Mover provides students with eight canvas backgrounds on which they can construct their poems.

Applications for Education
Word Mover could be a great tool for students to use to as a story or poem starter. Word Mover reminds me a bit of those refrigerator magnets that were popular for a while. You know, the ones that had individual words on them that you dragged around to create funny sentences. The same idea can be applied to Word Mover.

We do not agree with the "100 great apps" approach because you will never make it to #17 let alone #100. Here are a list of 5 FREE tools we recommend to use this upcoming school year to increase student engagement, deeper level thinking, teacher productivity, and make parent communication flawless! "
