#BookTok is a newer way for students to create video book trailers. Read about it in this NY Times article and watch this video. I’m adding this info to Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them.

How to Quickly Broadcast Your Screen to Your Students’ Screens is from Richard Byrne.

I’m adding this next tweet to The Best Online Sources For Images:

Story Map lets you tell stories with maps. I’m adding it to The Best Map-Making Sites On The Web.

Antimatter lets you create virtual classrooms where students can create memes. You can read more about it at TechCrunch. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Making Internet ” Memes”
