    We are working on student paint projects. I want to create a class slide show. There is no way for the students in our network to post their work where I can acess it. i have to go student by student and have them save to a flash drive. Is there an easy way that students could save to an online site? Bob

      Hi Bob! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. There are a number of sites that allow students to contribute to a slideshow online. First that comes to mind is a presentation in Google docs. Students can create their slide and upload it to the presentation file. I am not sure the age of your students and if your students have email addresses but to use Google docs they will need an email address to login and edit the presentation. Another site is PhotoPeach (http://www.photopeach.com). You can create a login and have students upload their slides to the class account. Another option is VoiceThread (http:www://voicethread.com). With VoiceThread you can create student accounts and they can collaborate on one VoiceThread and upload their slides. I believe you can do something similar with Zoho (http://www.zoho.com) presentations and SlideRocket (http://www.sliderocket.com may have to pay for this site – been awhile since I have used it). Smilebox is another option – http://smilebox.com/. You can save your PowerPoint slides as images and upload to many of the sites shared above. I hope these options help!

    Hi Kim,

    Congrats on the new blog. What do you think about the use of games in the classroom? I’m thinking of things like the Monkey Tales series of games for Math.

      Hi Rick! Thanks for leaving a comment here! I think there is great potential for gaming in the classroom at several grade levels depending upon how the learning activities are structured with pre and/or post follow activities. I used to be housed in the computer lab as a campus technologist specialist and it used to drive me bonkers when teachers would bring students in for their weekly time slot and allow students to play on game sites while the teacher sat down and checked email or worked on lesson plans. Such a waste of time. If the games are used as extensions and are used as critical thinking opportunities I am all for games in the classroom/computer lab. The BBC has some great game simulations where students have to make choices to successfully complete the simulation or complete the desired goal. Those are games that I wholeheartedly support!

      Kim
