Notes (from presenters in bold, from me in italics):
This session just provided some good websites to use in math. Most of them have been around for a while, but here are some that I'm not using fully yet.
- linoit.com - online bulletin board where you can add notes, pictures, videos, any type of file and organize them any way you want.
- wordle.net/create - create word clouds when you input text. The more the word shows up, the bigger it is. Can rearrange the wordle until you like it.
- flubaroo.com - an online grading tool that incorporates with GoogleDocs/GoogleForms. It looks like a lower-tech version of what Andy Schwen showed at #flipcon12. See instructional video here http://www.flubaroo.com/instructional-videos. It looks pretty cool and I'm wondering how I could incorporate it into my class. Ramsey Musallam just recorded a 10 minute full instructional video here! Thanks Ramsey!
- edu.glogster.com - Creative way for students to "collage" projects. You can create a free account, or you can pay to be able to manage classes and stuff.
- illuminations.nctm.org - Website with a lot of online manipulatives, games, etc. I've known about this site for the last 5 years and haven't taken the time to play around with it quite yet.
- National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM) - another site I've known about for the last 5 years but just haven't played around with yet.
