An Easy Way to Quickly Create Vocabulary Lists from Documents - Best of 2015-16 School Year All of this week I am on the road working with teachers in Texas, Kansas, and Arizona. Rather than scrambling to write blog posts at the end of each day, I'm taking this time to feature some of the most popular posts and new tools of the 2015-2016 school year.

I think it could have been a useful tool for students studying geography or planning a field trip so they could label things, and it could also be helpful to English Language Learners for learning new vocabulary (sort of like a freehand “Thinglink” that doesn’t require registration. I say “could have been” because the brush size is too thick and unwieldy for labeling use — at least, it was for me. If you can figure out a way to make it more usable, please let me know. Thanks to Google Maps Mania for the tip.
5 Free Tools For Making Digital Portfolios Students create a truly outstanding amount of work over the course of a year. Back when everything was done on paper, most of that work was either thrown in the trash, stuffed in a drawer somewhere, or stuck in a box in the garage. How many essays, stories, you labor over during your years as a student that you’ll never see again? Now that so much of what students create in school (and in life) is in the digital realm, teachers have an opportunity to help students value their work more and for longer.
