In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth blogging about, I’ve recently begin a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” (you might also be interested in The Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2015). I also sometimes include tech tools that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:
The online learning game Kahoot has a “ghost” mode that lets students play against themselves. You can read about it at Richard Byrne’s blog. It’s nice, though I still prefer other games that I share at The “All-Time” Best Online Learning Games.
ClassKick lets teachers create virtual classrooms with pre-made or original assignments. It’s free. I’m adding it to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress.
The Learnia lets you create interactive video lessons. I’m adding it to A Potpourri Of The Best & Most Useful Video Sites.
You might remember Xtranormal, which was a great tool for creating animations with narration. Now, a new company has acquired its software and rebranded itself as nawmal. It’s not free, but at least it’s available again.
