What will you read this summer? Goodreads is an interesting website with many features geared to help you decide! I spent quite awhile at Goodreads exploring the site and all it’s features. Goodreads is also a community of readers sharing their likes and dislikes. The site has been up and running since 2007 and has 17 million readers reviewing and sharing what they have read. I really like the bookshelf feature which allows you to organize the books that you have already read, or want to read.
From Art journaling, scrapbooks, media processes, materials organization and just plain great visualizations, Limor Webbor’s Mixed Media Fridays You tube Video stream is a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration!
Clippingmagic is an online site that allows you to easily remove backgrounds from images.
At Eschersketch you can create cool Escher type designs right on your screen. Change colors, line thickness and design on Eschersketch to make beautiful backgrounds and patterns.
I just love the freedom in this tool and plan on using it with my Graphic Design kids tomorrow! Just screenshot or snip your screen to save your image.Created by MIT License Anselm Levskaya. Love it!
I learned about Schoology last weekend at Edcamp Boston from Social Studies teacher Nate Everett @thalesdream. Wow! Schoology is an awesome online one stop classroom management tool that has everything a teacher might need all in one place. It encompasses a multitude of tools and has a free basic edition for teachers to use as well as a paid package.
Within the free teacher account teachers can create a home page, assignments, events, quizzes, integrate with Google drive & dropbox, and create grade books. There’s also a data analysis tool available to track student progress. There is much more within Schoology then I mentioned so check it out! Thanks Nate for sharing!
