Below are some links to sites that can help you create new content. Each has its own benefits, but you can choose whatever tool to help you accomplish your task. Here is the grading rubric for any project.
1. Glogster – In short, Glogster lets you create interactive web “posters” that can incorporate text, images, video, and audio. If you like visual design, then this is a good tool to use. Do note that you need an account in order to save your projects. Get the class code from Mr. Prindle.
2. Prezi – Prezi is a non-linar presentation tool that has more creative power than PowerPoint. Prezi allows you to represent ideas in three dimensions rather than linear thought lines. Prezi is a good tool if you like to show how many different ideas can all be linked to one or two core concepts. You do need an account to create and save presentations.
3. Weebly – This is for your inner web designer. Weebly allows you to create a free website without needing to know coding or HTML formatting. Very easy to set up and use for a variety of tasks. You need an account to save the website and share a published URL.
4. Jing – Do you want to make a screen recording to teach or demonstrate something? You have a program on your netbook already called Jing that will allow you to capture whatever is on your screen. You can talk over top to explain and then save it into a video we can put on YouTube.
5. Screencast-o-matic – Another easy way to make free screen recordings is to use Screencast-o-matic.com. Follow the on-screen prompts to record your screencast and then export into a shareable file. 15 minute limit in the free version, no editing capabilities unless you pay for a premium account.
6. WordPress.com – Like Weebly this is for your inner web designer. Unlike Weebly you have more design choices. Wordpress.com allows you to create a free website without needing to know coding or HTML formatting. Very easy to set up and use for a variety of tasks. You need an account to save the website and share a published URL.
7. ThingLink – Nice site where you can take and image and embed just about anything into it.
8. Aurasma – Create an augmented reality (AR) poster.
9. iMovie – Create a movie of your project using iMovie on your Mac or MovieMaker on your Windows machine.
10. Haiku Deck – A web or iPad based application that you can create presentations with royalty free images.
11. emaze – emaze is the next generation of online presentations, empowering you to create an amazing impression through design and technology. all you need to do is choose one of our templates to begin creating an amazing presentation. because there is no second chance to make a first impression.
