Site & App of the Week: December Sites

Each week an interesting web site and app are highlighted on this page. Visitors are invited to suggest sites and apps to be highlighted.

Week of December 2

Symbaloo is the highlighted web site and app for this week.  This site provides a vehicle to organize your bookmarks in a visual way.  At EdCamp in the fall of 2013, a kindergarten teacher highlighted this site as a way to share websites with his students by customizing the buttons with pictures they could easily identify.  Pages can be public or private.   A gallery of examples from international users is available.  One example is from a teacher in Texas.  You can click on her profile link to see more.    Accounts for individuals are free.  Pricing for multiusers and districts is available.  Check out this resource!

Week of December 9

Educators may embrace the concept of flipped learning as a methodology but finding the time to create their own videos or search the web for resources is still an issue. This week's highlighted site is the article "10 must-watch videos for flipped learning" written by   Send this link out as a early holiday gift to your teachers. Viewing any of the ten will lead the viewer to other resources.

Proudly displaying my English teacher bias, I have included the one on nouns.

Week of December 16

As we try to keep up with our students and their use of technology, this week I share an Edudemic article on "How to Use Instagram in the Classroom and Library."  It includes a great infographic from the blog Librarians on the Fly and a few cross curriculum suggestions of the application of this app.  

 The Instagram is available for Apple and Android devices.
