The Tech Chicks are two Texas educators out to share technology tips and tricks. Through their blog, they share podcasts FULL of links and ideas! If you are looking for ideas, new ways to incorporate technology into the classroom, or for the “latest” tools, the Tech Chicks are a great place to start!
In this episode from the “Tech Chicks,” Helen and Anna, the educators discussed several websites, including:
- Students Review Books
- The e-Learning Centre
- and warn against document corrupters, such as this one.
PhotoFunia is an online photo editing tool, in which you can give your photo a cool effect, or put your “face in the hole.” As an educator, this could be a fun way to put an image to a “When I grow up…” project, or an outlet for students to be creative and have fun. It is important for teachers to be cautious, though, and maybe choose photos for your students to use.
Students Review Books is a site full of “book reviews by students, for students.” It is a site in which students can learn, use, and create book reviews for their peers. This site would be a great place for a student to look, before checking out a new book from the library. Also, students can contribute their book reviews, via the submission form. This is agreat tool for the classroom!
