In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth blogging about, I post a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” (you might also be interested in The Twenty-Five Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2017 – So Far). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:
Travel Map lets you create a “travel blog” documenting a trip on an interactive map. Sites like this one can be used by students to document a field trip, a journey from literature or history, or a military campaign. However, Travel Map is not as intuitive as I would like it to be, so I’m not sure it’s they best tool of its type, but it’s worth checking out. You can see other options at The Best Map-Making Sites On The Web.
Pictogon lets you create interactive images (dots you can click on to get more information on items or people in the picture). It’s nice, but you can only make a few before they start charging. Check out The Best Online Tools For Using Photos In Lessons to find other free or lower-cost alternatives.
Get Acquainted is a very intriguing online survey tool that creates “conversational polls.” I’d encourage you to read Richard Byrne’s post and watch his video about it. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Creating Online Polls & Surveys.
Bamboozle lets you create games your class can play by projecting them on a screen. They seem easy to create, though I it doesn’t yet have that large of a collection of ones that other teachers have created. You might also be interested in The Best Websites For Creating Online Learning Games.
GIF Maker, Video to GIF lets you easily…create GIF’s from videos. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On GIFs — Please Contribute More, which I need to update.
