1 ) Seriously Amazing
- This website, hosted by the Smithsonian, is an interactive and engaging way
to explore various questions about interesting topics. For example, "Was Dr.
Suess a wartime propagandist?" Depending on the question, the answers may
include text, audio, video or images.
- Users can narrow their search by Art, History, Science, etc to find specific
- The colourful interface reminded me a little of Symbaloo and I can see how it
would be engaging for students.
2 ) RSA Animate How-To
- Have you ever watched one of those RSA Animate videos and thought
about how awesome it would be to make one of your own? I love the doodle
style of these videos and have attempted to create my own and had some
success using PowToon, when it was free, but now I've found a tutorial!
- If you aren't familiar with the style I've put a popular one below.
- Paul Bogush has actually created RSA Animate videos with his students (how
awesome is that!?) and has put together an incredibly thorough tutorial of how
they did it including what tools they used, possible glitches and lots of pictures!
- I'm sure if students can do it, then so can I! If I figure it all out I would love to
create a similar project with my students one day.
* Special thanks to the #ETMOOC network for finding this for me!
Happy Monday everyone!
