Online Testing Free Quiz Maker Create the Best web-based quizzes ClassMarker ICT in the Early Years Names in a Hat Åh, vad jag älskar dessa appar! Fick igår tips av Viveca (som i sin tur fått det av Andreas) om en liten app (billig) som heter Names in a Hat. Det är en enkel app som ger nya möjligheter till lottning. Man "shake, shake, shake" lite och så kommer det ett namn upp och vips så har man placeringen klar i klassrummet - inga tråkiga lottlappar här inte. Något annat som också är bra är ju att den banar väg för metoden No Hands Up inom BFL-metodiken. Enkelt och smidigt!

Brain Games & Brain Training - Lumosity 10 Free Web 2.0 Tools And How To Easily Use Them In Your Classroom Earlier this week I had the opportunity to attend the first Ozarks Education Research Initiative (OERI) Teacher Technology Conference at Willard High School (MO). The learning sessions I attended were all very good and I am going to share 10 of the FREE tools I learned about below. I will be incorporating them into how I teach and hopefully by using these tools during faculty meetings, PD sessions, and other opportunities as they arise, this will help us all to find ways to incorporate them into the classroom to engage our students even more. This quote from last week has stuck with me ever since it was spoken – “Date the tool. Marry the idea.” I don’t recall who this is attributed to, but it resonates with me still. Engagement is key!

ICTmagic - home Otus - A Great Online Learning Environment Otus is a free online learning environment that I first learned about in July. One of the founders of the company recently gave me a hands-on tour of the environment, I was impressed by the possibilities of what I saw. Otus was originally designed to be a service for teachers to distribute assignments, quizzes, polls, reading materials, and essential information from their iPads to their students' iPads. Otus has expanded to support use within a web browser on laptops and Chromebooks. To get started with Otus sign up as a teacher either on the iPad app or in your web browser. The possibilities for teachers using Otus seem limitless. The resource libraries in Otus are called bookshelves. In the assessment section of your Otus classroom you can create multiple choice, true/false, and open response questions. Applications for Education I only listed my favorite options in Otus, there are many others to explore. - Online Cornell Notes, Flashcards and Study Groups What is a QR Code?
