Educational Tools Worth Checking Out

By Colin McKenzie Rahimi

Introduction

This playlist is a list of websites and tools that aid in education, specifically in the K-12 arena. This list would benefit teachers or anyone who is looking to learn about educational technology. (There will be more lists to come!)

Added by Colin McKenzie Rahimi: “This website is great for making in-class quizzes. You can help students review topics for an upcoming test. The cool thing is that students can use their own smartphones or other mobile devices to access the website.

1 Socrative | Student Response System | Audience Response Systems | Clicker | Clickers | Student Clickers | ARS | Mobile Clicker | Software Clicker

Socrative lets teachers engage and assess their students with educational activities on tablets, laptops and smartphones. Through the use of real time questioning, instant result aggregation and visualization, teachers can gauge the whole class' current level of understanding. Socrative saves teachers time so the class can further collaborate, discuss, extend and grow as a community of learners.

Added by Colin McKenzie Rahimi: “Popplet is a very helpful organizational tool that allows users to create mind maps or webs. Students could use these as a starting point for research projects. The great thing about poppet is that users can collaborate on mind maps and share with each other.

Added by Colin McKenzie Rahimi: “Khan Academy has videos to help students with math, science, history, and other subjects. It is a great tool to use as a supplement in your classroom.

5 Khan Academy

Added by Colin McKenzie Rahimi: “Jog the Web is a wonderful tool for guiding students through the Internet. Young students usually need assistance with their first research projects, and this tool is excellent for this task. Try it yourself! You won't be disappointed. :) Here is an example...<a href="http://www.jogtheweb.com/run/jzpKZUHB5HXf/Online-Research-Tools">Online Research Tools</a>

6 Home | JOG THE WEB

JOG THE WEB is a web-based tool that allows anyone to create a synchronous guide to a series of web sites. Its step by step approach of taking viewers through web sites allowing the author to annotate and ask guiding questions for each page is unique.

Added by Colin McKenzie Rahimi: “Prezi takes a more creative spin on presentation creation. Prezis are more interactive and exciting than traditional slideshows tend to be. This is a great tool for teachers as well as students to make engaging and interesting presentations.

7 Prezi - Presentation Software

Added by Colin McKenzie Rahimi: “Word clouds are great for short assignments like vocabulary. They are also a good way for students to write short reflections over a lesson. Students can create word clouds and then add them to the class website/wiki.

10 Wordle - Beautiful Word Clouds

Wordle is a toy for generating "word clouds" from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like.

Added by Colin McKenzie Rahimi: “Voicethread is definitely a website to check out. Teachers and students can post presentations and add visual or auditory comments. Students can ask questions while watching the presentation, or peers can comment on their classmates' work.

11 VoiceThread - Conversations in the cloud

Added by Colin McKenzie Rahimi: “Wikispaces is a tool that can be used for class projects or individual student portfolios. Students can add to a class wiki, teachers can create a classroom website/newsletter, or students can produce a collection of their best work.
