10 great tools for education: Day 2
Today is day two of my 10 great tools for education. I sincerely hope that you enjoy the second helping of web based educational resources.
The first resource for today is called Share My Lesson. This website is a place where educators can create and share their best/favorite teaching resources. Share My Lesson also contains a large amount of resources related to Common Core State Standard and best of all, this site is free to use.
The second site for today is Voice Thread which is not new but is very worthy of mention. This site allows students to comment on resources posted by their teacher. The resources can be pictures, web pages, documents of a video. Students can choose to write their response or they can record their feedback by using a microphone, web cam, or cell phone. They have the option of responding with a video commentary. Like every other resource I have shared, Voice Thread is free to sign up but it does cost money if you want to add student accounts.
