This weeks links:
Create Flash games easily without having to know how to code in Flash! You can create a Jeopardy game, “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?”, and a board game. Also a few “classroom management tools” like random name generator (instead of pulling a name out of a hat) and other somewhat goofy but useful programs.
Screen Casting – Create a video capture of your screen and include voice over and even video from a webcam. Fairly straightforward- create an account, start recording, send out address – not much to it.
Create your own animated stories. Add your school to the site so that students can turn in assignments for teachers to view online.
Blog Posting of the Week:
Wordle.net is a site where you can place text in and it will generate a “Tag Cloud” of the text (showing what words are used more frequently by words being larger and bolder.) It is a great site to use to help students to see their papers differently. This post has a number of presidential addresses as Wordle sees them. Interesting to see what was going on at the time and what topics were more important to those presidents.
