MPS Techno News - Second flyer

Here you will get ideas of different websites, web tools and apps to help enhance student learning in your classroom.

Websites and Web Tools of the Week!

Photopeach

http://photopeach.com/                                                                    The idea of Photopeach is to help you tell better stories online using photos.With PhotoPeach you can create a rich slideshow in seconds to engage your friends or family. We also support background music, captions, and comments so you can elaborate on your story further. A great tool to embed photos into a blog or for stimulus for student writing.

Book Trailers

http://www.homepages.dsu.edu/mgeary/booktrailers/default.htm                                                        This site represents the beginning of a website of short movies (generally 30 to 45 seconds) designed to increase student motivation to READ! They are trailers for different books in an attempt to engage a reader. A great way to enhance student learning by having students create similiar trailers to sell there own book, they are independently reading, to the class.

Big Scrub Literacy

http://bigscrubliteracy.nsw.edu.au/Big Scrub Literacy website is a literacy website supporting grades from K - 6. It includes assessment tasks and marking criteria, NAPLAN stlye questions, term planners linked to the Literacy continuum and many other creative activities. It is created by the Northcoast DET schools.

APP of the week!

Puppet Pals HD Review

Puppet Pals HD

Create your own unique shows with animation and audio in real time!Simply pick out your actors and backdrops, drag them on to the stage, and tap record. Your movements and audio will be recorded in real time for playback later. This app is as fun as your own creativity. Act out a story of Pirates on the high seas, fight as scary monsters, or play the part of a Wild West bandit on the loose. You can even combine any characters however you want! Your creations are only limited by your imagination (and voice acting skills in my case). Once you download the free app you will need to purcahse a directors pass for $2.99 to access all the characters and sets.   Also now available in Puppet Pals 2.
