A teacher’s DREAM.

Standard
I recently attended a conference and picked up some great sites that have great ideas to incorporate with technology. Please check them OUT!
 
Museum Box — This is a great technology piece for non-fiction stuff.  Students could do a report on science concepts, math concepts, social studies concepts, or non-fiction writing workshop samples.  Very neat!

Glogster — a great “virtual” poster presentation — a great way for students to showcase what they’ve learned about a concept.

Edu and non-edu versions

more for elementary

Class account

how private or public

fun

 
Storyjumper — if you can pull off having parents order these books (or perhaps work with a fundraising effort to get books for the library), this is a really neat publishing option.
 

Tagxedo — Neat for vocabulary study or digital publishing option for poetry.
http://www.tagxedo.com

Kerpoof — this has soooooo many different options as far as how you can use this in the classroom. Sky’s the limit!
 
Bookemon — you are able to design, share, and/or buy books that you digitally create.

Tiki-Toki — this is a really slick timeline piece.  Great for social studies concepts or story sequencing!

 
Mixbook:

Fairly simple, confusing at times, might need to try a couple times

Layout or Themes are limited, but Try out the blank pages

Drag and Drop

E-mail required, can buy the book if you want, something worth trying

Templates good for primary
