Here are some tried and tested goodies from the Internet – that you may just need one day because you have a room full of year 10 students who only took business because it was in the same option block as PE…

Gzaas is a site which just displays large text in a funky font.  Great for huge messages on your whiteboard – like “hand in your homework now”, “Robert stop talking”, “log off” you get the idea.

Popplet makes cute mind maps, the different colours could be with a small group of students each assigned to a different colour.

Also awesome at revision time for visual learners who are just sick of making notes.

Survey monkey is great for votes, exit tickets etc  Students can also carry out surveys easily and claim as Primary research on their controlled assessment – I kid you not, a wonderful tool.

Free BTW.

This is easel.ly and it aims to make infographics.

I had a crack at this with some top flight year 11s and they just about got the swing after an hour.  About 3 / 50 students liked it for revision purposes and they shared their work at the end of the session.

This is Lino it, a great site to allow students to bring together; files, videos, thoughts (on sticky notes)pictures and audio files.  Great for project work or a one session lesson.

My students loved this at revision time.

New tool called Gliffy makes cool diagrams.  You need to sign in using your hotmail address, (create a spam one first if you are worried about privacy).

Then create the diagram and file> export it as a jpeg to use in Word or PowerPoint.

Link: New Plagiarism checker, getting homework e-mailed to you?  Run it through this bad boy first to find out who the true author was.  I have used this extensively and I enjoy using it more than eating free cake.

Enjoy.

Burger Plan an essay with a group like layers in a burger. So the conclusion is the bottom bap. Nice for AS / A2 to remind them to put in a conclusion in every question.

Countdown timer with theme tunes such as Hawaii 50 and the BBC Cricket theme. This is great I use it with classes doing timed typing tests.

Fastest typist gets to pick the next theme.
