Tech Tuesday for January 21st

Happy Tech Tuesday everyone! I have some cool things to share with you this week. I hope you have a moment to check them out. 

I am beyond excited to announce that Grosse Pointe South High School will be hosting a TEDx event June 7, 2014! As part of my students' 20 Time Projects, I worked on my own project to bring a TEDx event to South so my students could share their work on a world stage. More details will be shared as we move closer to the event, so stay tuned!

Here is my Cloud Tools survey for the book I am working on for Corwin Publishing. If you have a minute, please share what tools you use in the classroom so I might be able to feature some of the amazing things Grosse Pointe Teachers are doing. 

Photo Pin

Photo Pin is a great site that allows Bloggers to use images free of charge. Now, many of you might not be Bloggers, but you might be assigning more web based projects and this is a great tool to share with your students who are looking for picutres. Some of the pictures shown will say there is a charge, but there are many more that are free to use. It is never a bad thing to have extra search options when it comes to photos. 

Block Posters

Have you ever wanted to take a picutre and blow it up into a poster? Well, with Block Poster, you can do that with just a few clicks of the mouse. Block Poster is designed to allow a user to choose how many sheets of paper they would like their blown up poster to use. You can scan in student work and blow it up for your classroom or hallway. This would be a great way to surprise students and share their work with everyone. Once pieced together, the poster could be laminated and given to the student to take home. This looks like a great site to share with your students and parents. 

Sum Cloud is a fun site for young math students that works great on the Smartboard. Using 6 different levels of difficulty, the game allows kids to take a look at the possible answers and select them. It's a fun game to have kids practice their Math skills.
