Technology for Teachers

Learning apps and websites a few at the time

Rubistar

This is a great website that you can use to design a rubric. There are templates to help and you can also find thousands of saved rubrics that have been used in classes throughout the country. It only takes a few minutes to make a rubric if you use one of their templates. You can save it in Excel to make changes later or to keep for future use.

Photomotion

This is an APP that can be put on your iPad or iPhone. It will be located in the APP store but as an iPhone APP. It does have a cost ($1.99 ???), but it is well worth the expense. It makes movies using pictures in only a matter of minutes. You can zoom in, zoom out, change the color of the picture, add titles, and add music. This is the APP that I used to make our faculty video.
