Symbal ok
The fourth resource is Symbaloo. I love this website as it allows you to create and organize your web-based bookmarks in one place. I've been working on a few of these webmixes and will share two with you now. The first one is for Memorial School Staff! It's still a work in progress, so I hope you'll check back from time to time to see what's been added. I want to point out the five tiles in the lower left hand corner as they are for you to use on your white boards. One of them is a birthday cake creator which would be so much fun to use when it's a student's birthday. Each tile is a link to a new website.

Next is a Symbaloo created for our young students. There are a few google alternatives or safe searches, links to author websites and other age appropriate sites. This Symbaloo is also a work in progress. I hope you will find it useful.

The 2nd "gift" is an animated poem by Peter Reynolds (author of The Dot) and his brother Paul called Keepers of the Flame. They created it as a thank you for all educators. It's about three minutes long. Enjoy and feel the love and appreciation!

The first resource is the fun and fabulous app called Tellagami. It's what I used to create the video or Gami below. It's free in the App Store.
Tellagami
Tellagami lets you create and share a short animated message. Think of the fun ways to use this with your students: telling a quick (30 second) story, showing something we've learned or sharing what we're thankful for, etc.


Here's an article, A Handful of Ideas for Using Tellagami in Schools by Samantha Morra, who some of us met at T21 last year: http://goo.gl/38i03R


Enjoy!
