Recently I’ve been experimenting with a number of curation sites that are beneficial for creating and sharing lists. While exploring these tools, I’ve been “fine tuning” my Web 2.0 list for schools. I created a list of 25 Web 2.0 sites for education over a year ago — but a lot has changed since then. More sites have been developed and more tools are available to students and educators than ever before.This list is in alphabetical order.
- 19 Pencils - 19Pencils is the easiest way for teachers to discover, share and manage web-based educational content with students. A teacher can create quizzes, websites, track students, and more.
- ACMI Generator - This is a great site for older students for digital storytelling and creating a storyboard scene with a script.
- Animoto - Create wonderful looking slideshows that includes, video, images, music, and more.
- Aviary Education - A safe private environment to use Aviary’s suite of online tools for: audio, video, and image editing.
- Boom Writer - BoomWriter is a supremely engaging creative writing website that has students reading, writing and assessing content in ways they’ve never done before!
- Classtell - A nice site for teachers to create an educational website.
