Posters

Glogster

Do your students still create posters to demonstrate their learning? The digital version that Glogster offers gives students a rich assortment of tools to make their learning shine. In addition to adding images, students can add text, audio, video, clipart and music.
The free educator account will give you up to 200 private student accounts and doesn't require student email. Student productions can be embedded elsewhere.

Timelines

There seems to be an explosion of online timeline creators. Each one has its strengths and weaknesses. The one that seems to be most popular with educators is Dipity
Dipity is easy to use, can get data from many different services, or have events added manually. It can include images, links, and text, and also be connected to a map. Registration is free and include 3 timelines for free.


The video below explains Dipity very clearly. The explanation starts about 5 minutes in to the video (The first part is about Voicethread.) This video was a presenation from the 2008 K12 Online Conference.
