Create your own School AKA video course using Teachem. It works by using YouTube videos, a time stamped flashcard system, and sharable SmartNotes. This would be an excellent forum to use for skill building or even in a flipped classroom. I envision anything from basic drawing with charcoal to Photoshop tutorials. Teachem has a lot of possibilities and its free!
Freepick is an excellent site for finding free images to use on blogs, projects and websites. There are multiple formats available which include vectors, PSP’s, and other photos. Via @dougpete on Twitter
The Matboard is like a Pinterest for Creative folks. The content on The Matboard is only artistic unlike Pinterest. Create mood boards, image collections, get inspired, look for ideas, and upload and share portfolios of your own work. The Matboard is visual and works similar to Pinterest as you create and share collections of artistic content. Via Mashable
Exploratorium is an online Learning environment that encourages one to explore, experiment and problem solve through unique thought provoking ideas, tools, and links. Many themes, venues and subject areas are available within the site. Color for example is one excellent topic within the site that I think my students would enjoy. There is so much more within Exploratorium you will want to stay for a few hours. Cool Site!
Create your own newspaper with Fodey. Name it, give it a headline, date it, and then add text. Sweet!

Wow! A giant fish sculpture made from hundreds of found plastic water bottles adorns the sidewalk on A1A by Ft Lauderdale beach. At night it lights up! It raises awareness of the growing problem that plastic bottles present on the world beaches. If you’re on winter break in Florida get down to the beach to see this cool installation! This is a great idea for creating a public sculpture with students. It’s called Big Fish Ft Lauderdale and it’s created by Rabbit Studios. Here is the link
