  • If you’re a user of Google Drive, then no doubt you have also heard of and likely used Google Presentations (Google’s version of PowerPoint). It’s a great tool to create slick presentations in the cloud, especially after its most recent overhaul. However, Google Presentations is also a handy tool for doing some great projects with your students that have nothing to do with public speaking. Here are some fun exercises you can try in your classes

More Evernote

I promised to share more about Evernote, the truly awesome free tool that you can use on any computer, tablet or smartphone to “remember everything”. Used extensively by teachers and students around the world, there are many educational applications for Evernote

This video is from Melbourne’s very own Evernote Education Ambassador, primary teacher Rebecca Spink. The video gives you an overview of some of the ways she uses Evernote both as a personal productivity assistant and in managing her classroom and students. If you are interested in making videos and wonder how she did this, I can see that the video was made using Haiku Deck and iMovie, two of the apps we have installed on our class iPads.

Bec writes extensively about using Evernote in education on her blog Miss Spink on Tech. If you are at all interested in giving Evernote a go, whether on an iPad, phone, PC or Mac I highly recommend a browse through her articles. She also curates a Flipboard magazine about Evernote in Education where you’ll find many of her blog posts plus articles from other sources.

  • “It’s National Poetry Month, the perfect time to fill the world with beautiful ideas and poetic power!

    For a little inspiration, we’re showcasing twelve terrific poetry projects from our incredibly creative community of educators. You’ll find projects for first graders and high schoolers, and everything from sensory poems to color explorations to poems about polliwogs. (We also think any of these would be just as fun for adults to try — a little creative expression is always good for the soul!)”
