Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 4/20/18

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Word Mover – “Word Mover allows children and teens to create “found poetry” by choosing from word banks and existing famous works; additionally, users can add new words to create a piece of poetry by moving/manipulating the text.” (L:G; SA:LA)

Dayboard – “Dayboard is a new tab to do list that focuses on just 5 items each day. Start your day by writing down the most important tasks you want to accomplish. Every time you open a new tab, you’ll be reminded of your priorities, which works with a built-in site blocker that prevents you from visiting distracting sites like Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and YouTube. This way you can fight procrastination and stay focused on the task at hand.” (L:G;SA:A)

Summarize This – copy and paste text into this and it summarizes the information. (L:G;SA:A)
