At this time of the year, who couldn't use that?!

Jim's "Pick-O-The-Week"

"My Pick-O-The-Week is BibMe. It's just so easy to create a bibliography at this site that I have to recommend it. It's a quick way to create a correctly formatted bibliography so no student can use the excuse they didn't have time to enter information or didn't know the format for their resource."

Jim shares: "Creating a podcast is a wonderful way to share audio files that you record. Think of a podcast as being something like a radio broadcast. Students like to hear their voices so this site can help promote reading, story creating, etc."

Jim shares: "One of the most common questions I'm asked is about file conversion. This site provides many options for file conversion and does a nice job in an easy to use format. Other options are available on the Internet but this one may be the solution you need in the future."

Jim shares: "In today's age of plagiarism, it is important for the classroom teacher to provide easy ways for students to create a bibliography. BibMe is a simple solution for works cited pages. I like the format selection options which were up-to-date at the time I previewed this site. I also like the option of simply entering the ISBN and the book information is provided. Slick and easy."

Jim shares: "Create A Graph is one of the easiest ways you could have students create computer generated charts and graphs. It is easy to navigate, easy to enter data, and the final chart or graph is very nice looking. Charts and graphs that often-times need to be done in Excel can easily be done in Create A Graph. This is worth checking out."
