Awesome Tools for Schools

Hey everyone!

 

Here is a list of awesome tools that I love to use… Videos planned where I’ll introduce them, but for now- Here’s the grooviest tools for teaching we’ve¬†ever found… We often present on these at workshops and such- so if you’ve heard Me or Jackie speak, we probably talked about these if it was cool and free (or cheap) and online:

 

STAY CONNECTED WITH THE KIDS

Remind– (FREE) – AWESOME website where you get to send students texts- but they never know your number, and you never know theirs. AWESOME tool. They text during your class… You should text during their weekend. ūüėČ

 

TOOLS FOR COMMON CLASSROOM TASKS

Class Dojo– (FREE)- Killer tool for keeping track of behavior and rewarding that extra stuff in class that many of us feel is more important. Find out more

Quia -(CHEAP)- Online tests and quizzes- powerful and easy!

Prezi-(FREEmium) Powerpoint gets groovy.

LMGTFY– LOVE THIS SITE!!!!! animates a mouse that googles a topic for you when kids say they need help. Love it. Technology with snark! ūüėČ

 

FREE CLASSROOM/CLASS BLOGS

SchoologyР (FREEmium) REALLY popular in many districts. Jackie uses it herself for classes. Worth the $$ to upgrade. Check out the video on this page.

Weebly for Education– (FREE)- Free sites for educators and students. Cool service. Joe Dockery- part of the BB Team, LOVES it!

Class Jump– (FREE)- free class websites. Online quizzes, drop boxes, gradebook, everything!

School Notes (FREEmium)- Another free class site. Teachers can post information homework and other class information on their own personal page for parents to access. Free service with banner advertising.

Edublogs– A free wordpress site designed for schools! (We here at BB are HUGE WordPress fans!)
