DK Find Out is a simple to use combination visual dictionary and encyclopedia resource that younger students will love to explore!

There is a teacher application as well as a student section, galleries, fun facts, quizzes, and a “What’s new” link.
Stripe Generator is a keen little multifunctional visual stripe making tool that could be used in all types of graphic design work, website design, background pages, and any other digital art. Quicker than Photoshop!

Create a video message collage with Crumbles. Just type in the text and Crumbles converts your words into a sharable linked video message collage. Honestly? Crumbles is fun to play with! A great new way for you and your students to send a message, make a statement or give a simple direction.

Glaze is a Fabulous App to manipulate your photos into rich textural paintings. Pick a glaze style and manipulate away. My dog Pearl looks great all Glazed up!
Blubbr is an awesome site that allows users to create and share fast paced fun quizzes from videos. I imagine using Blubbr with my students to help them learn about Art History, color theory, and art processes that I’m teaching within my curriculum. Students could even use Blubbr to create their own study guides for tests.
Not only is it fun to create a “Triv”; It’s fun to explore Blubbr’s massive content. There are multiple categories and many within the Arts. Fun site!
I’m loving Yippy Cloud & Tag Creator! Instantaneously a user can visually create an embeddable tagged word cloud on any subject with this simple to use online tool. Use Yippy Cloud & Tag Creator for Artist Biography’s, Art history themes, or any themes, art process examples, color wheel study, and even for blog sidebars. Sweet Tool!
Cram is a simple to use flashcard creation site that is free to use. I see Cram as an excellent shared, versatile tool for students to use within their studies. I envision Cram being used with students to study Art history, vocabulary, art process information, and any other terminology or content that might be included on a test or exam.
One of the things I like about Cram is the openness, search options and share ability that exists within the site, allowing users to access multiple flashcard sets created by others inside of Cram . Sweet Tool!
Start.me is a free online sharable portal page in the cloud where users can organize links, resources, email, social network links, to do’s, notes, images, feeds, online material, video links, and even course information.

Add the weather, your email, music, news, social media links, stock information, your favorite Museum links and feeds. For Educators Start.me could be utilized as a student and classroom portal page.
