Welcome to the Wednesday version of Tuesday Tech Talk, bringing you some of the best web sites I’ve looked at recently, that you can really use! Great sites for this week include:
Rubistar: Create a custom rubric, or use one created by another teacher. You need to set up an account, but it’s free. Be sure to check out the link for the tutorial on the top right of the page.
Arcademic Skill Builders: Students can play a variety of fun, educational, online video games. Students can play against each other, but do not have the ability to chat while gaming, or they can play single player games.
Free Bingo Card Generator: Bingo can be a great way to review curriculum material with your students. This site allows you to create custom bingo cards with your own words or phrases.
Online Stopwatch: Need a stopwatch or want to set a count down timer? This is the site for you! It’s easy to use, and there are a variety of options such as split lap timer, egg time, large stopwatch, and more.
Edutopia, George Lucas Educational Foundation: This is a comprehensive site highlighting success stories and strategies in K-12 education, including best practices and classroom tips. Be sure to sign up for the free e-newsletters when you’re at the site.
If you like these sites post a comment and share your thoughts with other teachers. What did your students like about the sites? How do you think they helped you, and/or your students?
Finally, consider this video from EduBlogs TV:
We’re already laying the foundation for this now! Ask me how you can be a part of it!
