Learning tools webinar Smore page

Now here’s a great example of what Smore can do for you! I decided to embed this smore for 2 reasons. To obviously exemplify Smore as I had mentioned that it is a great alternative to glogster, and also to advertise the Department of Education and Communities useful series on Web 2.0 tools. There are presentations and also recordings to all sessions, which included: e-backpack, google apps in education, Blog-Ed and Adobe. Great to know for all those people teaching at DEC.

Glogster encapsulating Web 2.0 tools

I loved the idea of using a Web 2.0 tool such as glogster to showcase a variety of web 2.0 tools that can be used in the classroom.

Using quizlet in the classroom.

I heard about quizlet some time ago but I didn’t know that you could embed any set of flashcards you made into your blog or website. Today, I made a fresh set of flashcards on some common literary techniques.
Here is my set:

I really like the fact that any created sets can go directly to the website/LMS you use in your classroom. I think that’s pretty sleek! :-)

Multimedia Units of work

Here are a couple of unit of work I have created. They all incorporate multimedia to engage students, and make their learning more memorable and ultimately more fun! Over the years, I have planned units for subjects such as English, Spanish and ESL. Feel free to download them and adapt them for your classroom use. Or “borrow” any ideas that you might find useful!
