Tip of the week: TIPS: October 14, 2014

This week I thought I would send some updates and tips related to some of the web tools we have available to us in Sudbury!

Glogster EDU:  Glogster has recently added over 10,000 new educational graphics to their library.   In the past, his library had been populated with fairly generic and 'cute' graphics that did not tie as well to the curriculum. These new graphics are completely original and copyright free, categorized by subject, and ranging from accent graphics and text boxes to backgrounds and media players.

GlogsterEDU has also launched their iPad app!  It is pretty cool if I do say so myself... Log in the same way you do normally and have fun!  


Be on the lookout for teacher management tools in Today's Meet.. !  

Manage your classroom backchannel with permanent transcripts, the ability to pause a conversation, better access controls, add prompts along the way, and even the ability to mute a student... Coming soon!

Class DoJo now allows students to create their own avatar.. Many other management features have been added too. Over 35,000 teachers, parents and students are now using this easy to use classroom management tool!

DEStreaming: DEStreaming, online educational videos, video clips, images, sounds, songs, interactives, and much more, has added the following:

  • Global Wrap Current Events Content: presents a summary of the week’s most pressing global news, keeping students abreast of current events and connecting the past to the present
  • Content collections, featuring resources hand-selected by Discovery Education’s curriculum experts, aid in planning lessons on commonly taught topics
  • Video library features content from over 100 educational publishers aligned to Common Core includes exclusive, award-winning titles from Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and Science Channel including Frozen PlanetPlanet Earth, and Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero.  DE adds to their library of resources continuously.
