Expeditions Pioneer Program

Expeditions Pioneer Program is an innovative virtual field trip program from Google that I found about from Larry Ferlazzo's excellent blog. The way this works is a teacher/school signs up and then teams from around the world will come visit them using expedition kits. These kits are the 3D cardboard glasses from Google. Right now, they are visiting schools in the US, UK, Australia, and Brazil. Expeditions are guided virtual reality tours/field trips that student's couldn't normally visit. The 3D cardboard glasses turn it into a 3D experience for students and is a great way to use mobile devices in the classroom.

Results of the poll are then displayed in a spreadsheet, which makes it easy for an educator to differentiate instruction. Everyslide - your old slides made interactive from KPicture Inc. on Vimeo.

Edueto is a great new site for educators to create homework online and then grade it once students have completed it. This is done from a easy to use interface and allows teachers to add text, images, videos and more. After the students complete the assignment teachers can then grade them in a fast organized manner. Also, educators can find other assignments already created on Edueto and customize them to meet their own needs.


Edventure Builder is an innovative new site that is perfect for sparking student's creativity by providing a online platform for creating: scavenger hunts, interactive stories, or choose your own adventures.

The way this works is quite simple, from a browser a user can create an adventure (i.e., lesson, hunt, tour, etc) by adding text, images, video, and links. Then by clicking a button it gets published to any browser based mobile device. Best of all are the different features that allows a user to fully customize their adventures and edit, save, and publish them easily. [Written by dkapuler ]

EDpuzzle is a favorite site for Flipping a Classroom. This is done by taking any digital video and "making" it your own by cropping and adding questions into the video itself. This is great for assessing learning and for students to take their learning home. Finally, Edpuzzle recently updated their innovative site by allowing users to embed an image into a video as well to further create dynamic lessons.

Tocomail is an excellent site/iOS app for providing a safe email environment for children. The way this works is a child gets a free email account w/ safe/approved contacts from a guardian. Kids can then customize an avatar for their email account and even create drawings/paintings for email attachments. Parents can setup and approve a contact lists, receive quarantined emails waiting for approval, reject or approval any email, etc. Best of all, there is a content filter which quarantines the email it has any profanity and parents will be alerted if any bullying patterns are detected.

Edynco is a wonderful new site for creating Learning Maps. This site reminds me of Prezi in that it allows educators to create a multimedia presentation that is "zoomable". These Learning Maps can contains all types of media (i.e. audio, video, images) and are ideal for "flipping" a classroom or Guided Learning. Best of all, a finished Map can be shared via a URL or embedded into a site/blog. [Written by dkapuler on Jan 14, 2014 ].

Edpuzzle is one of my favorite sites for "flipping" a classroom. This educational tool allows educators to edit/crop a video and record their own audio to guide a lesson. This is ideal for wanting to point out specific points a video, ask a question, etc. Best of all, a teacher can embed quizzes into their video, which makes it perfect for the Flipped Classroom approach.

EduClipper Has Potential To Be An "All In One" Tool For Teachers & Students: "Clip Anything, then Share Everything! I use Pinterest daily. However, in the vast majority of schools, it is never going to make it past Internet content filters for students. eduClipper is basically a Pinterest for schools (and I confirmed today that it is not blocked at our school Ñ if it's not blocked by our district, it's unlikely to be blocked by most others). It has the potential of sort of being an "all in one" tool for the classroom, serving the same purpose as sites on The Best Social Bookmarking Applications For English Language Learners & Other Students list and on The Best Online Virtual "Corkboards" (or "Bulletin Boards") list, as well as serving other functions. The advantage of that kind of versatility is that students only have to learn one site. The potential drawback is that sometimes this kind of versatility results in a site being overly-complex.

A new breed of tools is emerging that allow faster and easier creation of infographics, enabling users without deep skills in graphic design or the software that supports it. These tools provide templates, examples, and drag-and-drop functionality that allow creators to focus their efforts on the concept rather than also having to worry about creating the graphic. The nature of these tools encourages fast prototyping, allowing students to create, assess, and revise many versions of a graphic in a short amount of time. These tools also offer the opportunity to expand visual learning and thinking into fields where visual aspects of communication are not always included.

Pick up and explore anything you see in the book; zoom out to the visual table of contents and quickly browse though the chapters; reach in and explore data-rich interactive graphics.
