PicMonkey: A free online tool for basic photo editing, graphic design, collage making, and many other cool features on the free version. PicMonkey will help students create content for their portfolios, school flyers, websites, and much more. Students will be able to learn new skills while showing their creative side.
Aurasma: “Augmented reality is a digitally enhanced view of the real world.” Turn any object, image, or place into an opportunity for AR. Create new possibilities for engagement through augmented reality experiences in the classroom. Make everyday things come to life with graphics, animation, video, audio, and 3D content. Students can hold a device up to an image, such as an animal, and be taken to resources with information on that animal.
Quizizz: Find or create gamified quizzes that teachers can assign as homework or start a “live” quiz in the classroom as a competition. The platform allows for many personalization options, such as the addition of avatars, fun memes, and a leaderboard. Students play together, but work at their own pace. When all students have finished, the teacher will receive detailed class reports.
Creatubbles: As a safe platform for students of all ages, Creatubbles was designed as a place for students to share creations and build a portfolio all under teacher supervision. You could think of it as a Facebook or Instagram platform, where students upload works of art and other users of the Creatubbles platform can ‘like’ what they see. Teachers can even collaborate to create a large collection of students’ work.
Math Playground: “A favorite of parents and teachers, Math Playground provides a safe place for children to learn and explore math concepts at their own pace.” Math Playground has over 100 math games searchable by topic or grade level, such as logic puzzles and problem solving activities.
