General Tips and Tools for the K-5 Classroom:
Digital Story Telling: Lots of resources here for the art of digital story telling.
Voki: I love that students can build their own “talking heads” to share their writing. Teachers can also use on personal websites to give student/parent directions and instructions.
Bubbl.us: Great web based mind mapping tool
Toon Doo: I can’t wait to use this tool in the upcoming school year for vocabulary development, story re-telling and PSA-style projects in other curricular areas
Tammy’s Technology Tips for Teachers: Wow. That’s all I can say.
Jam Studio: What a wonderful way to teach students about mood and style with straight forward analogies to writing and reading. The music will engage and inspire.
VozMe: This web-based tool is a text-to-speech converter. I envision using this for student proofreading/editing. It also has wonderful potential for increasing comprehension from texts students find on websites that may be out of their personal reading levels.
