Fake News Resources for Teachers - Julie Smith Resources to Help You Get Started: Super fun to have everyone jumping on the “fake news” bandwagon – we media literacy folks have been barking about this for YEARS! Welcome! =) Story Dice - a creative storytelling tool from Dave Birss As you can see above, you get five story dice (or nine dice, if you prefer), each with a random image on it. Your job is quite simply to turn these prompts into a story. I recommend you try to work with the order they appear on the screen but if you’re finding it tough, you can do some swapsies. You also don’t need to take the image literally. You can use the dice metaphorically or as representations of other concepts.
A New Version of Easy Accents for Google Docs Easy Accents is a Google Docs and Google Slides add-on that I've been using and recommending for years. This morning I went to use the add-on in Google Docs and noticed that there was a little message informing users to install a new version of Easy Accents. The new version works the same way as the old one. According the message from the developer, the reason for the change was a project hosting migration. Easy Accents for Google Docs and Google Slides provides users with a virtual keyboard that makes it easy to write letters with accent marks in their documents and slides. Rather than having to remember a set of keyboard combinations to create accent marks, you can just pick from a list on a virtual keyboard within Docs or Slides.

Powerful media support Twelve Good Tools for Creating Mind Maps & Flowcharts - Updated Earlier this week I published a video about a neat new service called Transo that lets you turn your notes into a mind map with just one click. Creating that video and writing the corresponding blog post got me to revisit a list of mind mapping tools that I published a couple of months ago. Here's my updated list of mind mapping and flowchart creation tools. TransnoTransno is a service that lets you write notes and outlines that can then be turned into mind maps and flowcharts with just one click. It reminds me a lot of the old Text2MindMap service that I used to use.
5 Alternatives to Padlet For the last 24 hours the Twittersphere has been buzzing about the recent changes to Padlet. While none of the following tools have as many features as Padlet, they all provide the core element of a digital wall to which you apply digital sticky notes. Here are five alternatives to Padlet. These are in the order in which I prefer them right now.

Notes containing video links will play the video within your Lino wall.

The service is called InVideo. While it is fairly easy to use to make audio slideshow-style videos, that's not why I'm mentioning it today. The reason I'm mentioning it is that contains a feature to convert written articles into videos. Let's All Share What We Do As Future Ready Librarians In Each One Of The FRL Wedges! I had such a wonderful time with our team as we worked with administrators, technology directors, principals, coaches and of course, lots of very special Future Ready Librarians. On the second day, as we examined, dissected and shared ways Future Ready Librarians lead, teach and serve within our libraries, schools and communities, one of my new friends, Becky Ackermann, came up to me with an idea from the collaborating they were doing at their table. Even though we took the FRL Framework apart on the first day together by breaking into 10 groups and...
