I've always been a big fan of creating posters in a classroom setting.  There is the research aspect, the writing aspect and then a creative aspect of presenting the information.  Now you can create a virtual poster that not only includes pictures, but videos without any mess.  This would be great for any content area. I am unsure how easy it is to do, but I am guessing even middle schoolers could figure it out.

Popplet

Popplet | kbedu636 | Scoop.it

Popplet is a place to "collect, curate and share" your ideas.  You can create popplets with just ideas or you could add  pictures, drawings and videos.  You can share these with others.  This would be great to take notes, make graphic organizers, take polls, etc.  You can export your popplets as jpg or pdf files.  You can embed a popplet into a website.  You could use it in presentations or even create homework with popplet.

Diigo

"Diigo essentially transformed the bookmark into a more usable and effective data collection tool and has also enabled a very unique and positive community aspect with V3. Diigo basically enables people to study and research as one would in a library – by taking pertinent pieces of the knowledge puzzle and putting them where they are accessible, functional and more easily utilized."

 

I think I have just begun to scratch the surface of this great tool.  As a student in a graduate class, it was so beneficial to be able to highlight an article online- making it personally much easier for me to process.  The great thing is that it saves it in my library and then even pulls out my highlighted word and saves the link for me.  I think this would be so valuable for students who are doing research.

Animoto turns your photos and video clips into professional video slideshows in minutes. Fast, free and shockingly simple - we make awesome easy.

 

In the classroom since this is so user friendly even elementary students can create videos related to topics of study.  They can add their own photos, pick their own music and create their own movies.  My daughter's class recently made a class video to share at a Grandparents program.  It was just a basic slideshow.  They would love adding their own personal touches to their class video.

MentorMob - Learn What You Want, Teach What You Love

Learn What You Want, Teach What You Love...

 

Mentor Mob allows teachers (and why not let your students be the teachers?) to focus the students’s attention by creating learning playlists of relevant content which can be enhanced by quizzes and comprehension exercises to test their knowledge as they go.

 

This would be perfect for the flipped classroom.  The students are directed to a playlist with videos, articles or websites to teach them and then given opportunities to practice the skills within Mentor Mob.  You can create your own playlist and share or find someone else's playlist.

Beautifully simple learning tools for students | Quizlet | kbedu636 | Scoop.it
Quizlet is a lightning fast way to memorize vocabulary lists. It's like flashcards, but much more fun and interactive.

 

As someone who spend a lot of time writing out flashcards for a student last year, only to have them tear off of the ring I put them on, I would have loved to known about this tool.  Not only can you create your own flashcards you can find and share sets with others.

Kidblog.org

Kidblog.org | kbedu636 | Scoop.it

Kidblog is a blogging site set up for classroom teachers that provides a safe way for kids to blog.  Teachers, parents and other classmates are the only ones who have access to the Kidblogs.  Recently, the titled a presentation on their product as "The Notebook is Dead".  They discussed how beneficial using a blog is for teachers and students.  Another great thing about kidblog is that it is very user friendly for kids.  They don't even have to remember a user name, they just select from their class list.  There are no ads cluttering up the site either.  It is free for teachers to use.
