Webtools: No Registration Needed for Students Welcome to my list of webtools that don’t require student registration. This started off as a simple curation for myself and has ballooned into something that I never thought would get this big. And it is still growing. I started added comments to each link, but that is taking a long time to complete. Please bear with me as I update it. While I do try to verify each link on a regular basis, please be aware that websites do change and some of these sites may no longer be active or may have switched to a paid version. Free. Over the next while, I will be adding labels to each of these to designate whether you can use this site without any registration at all or will need the use of a class code given by the teacher. If you find a bad link, bad site, or any other error, please let me know through the comment section.

11 Great YouTube Channels for Teachers September 11, 2014 YouTube is undoubtedly one of the most popular video hosting platforms in history. The stats released by its administration a few months ago are just mind blowing. With more than 1 billion monthly visitors and over 6 billion hours of video being watched each month (which equals almost an hour for every person on Earth) and an average of 100 hours of video uploaded every minute, YouTube sets a record of being the first audio visual media with the largest reach ever. As such, YouTube is definitely a treasure trove for us in education. It provides us with a varied and rich source of videos to use in class with students. However, searching for educational content on a platform that hosts millions of videos is akin to looking for a needle in a haystack. 1- Crash Course In this channel, teachers John and Hank Green provide some excellent video explanations and tutorials on a variety of topics related to World History, Biology, Literature, Ecology, Chemistry, and US History.

21 Things Every 21st Century Teacher Should Do This Year The Past mixing with the Future #selfie A new school year always brings about new ideas and hopeful ambition for teachers. However, it’s almost 2015. Gone are the days when we can use the excuse that “we don’t do technology”. Part of being a teacher in the 21st century is being creative in integrating academics and learning into student’s digital lives.

Lessonstream.org by Jamie Keddie Uncle Sam - Lessonstream.org From Wikipedia: “Uncle Sam (initials U.S.) is a common national personification of the American government that, according to legend, came into use during the War of 1812 and was supposedly named for Samuel Wilson.” In the last few years, the original poster has become a bit of a meme. Instead of enlisting recruits for the US Army, Uncle Sam says, “I want you to tidy your room!” or “I want you to give up smoking!” Recently, I used this online poster generator to try to remind some naughty teens about the class rules that we had set up the week before. It worked (for a day).
