Tech Tools! Postagram,TimeToast,Gooru, and Inklewriter!

  • I was watching Good Morning America while running on the treadmill.  I caught site of this tool, and my mind immediately went into teacher mode. Postagram allows you to send real postcards from your Iphone or Android. How cool! Imagine taking a pic of your class and sending it to your pen pals. Please share any other ideas you come up with!

I fell behind in my Edsurge readings, but I caught up yesterday, and found some goodies;

  • Timetoast - You can use Timetoast to create timelines and share them on the web. When I went to sign up I found out that I had signed up a while ago. So this is a rediscovered goodie that I will be using this year. Besides having students create their own timelines for various subjects, I could also create a virtual timeline to post on our blog throughout the school year.

  • Gooru - a powerful search engine for learning!

Inklewriter (Beta) via FreeTech4teachers via Larry Ferlazzo - A tool for writing interactive stories. I played with it a little and it seems simple enough. But don't worry, they have a tutorial you can watch.
