Jill suggested Read Write Think, one of my favorite sites. For those of us who teach early childhood and primary grades, the Doodle Splash section of this site is especially handy. Students can create pictures and write a short description of the picture or story they are reading. It's a great way to engage young learners in literature and illustrating books.
A good Mac application to see what's out there is Bodega (http://appbodega.com). Although it may not tell you what something used to cost, if it is now free, it will give you a good look at many apps out there that are free or for sale to support your teaching.
I didn't see this on the list, but http://moourl.com is like tinyurl, but more flexible. It is great for sharing Google Document links or other websites with students that are way too long to type.
I got this from the Intel STEM Essentials class I attended last week... Glen Rocks!!!
I'm looking for an online gradebook application that will allow me to input student data, assignments, include rubrics, checklist, and scoring guides, so that students/parents/guardians have access to it from any computer with Internet access. I've used MyGradbook.com in the past, but am looking for something new. Does anyone know of any others that might be worth looking at?
Thanks for joining in on discussions in the full community. There are great people here who are always willing to try and discuss ideas, problems, and try to share possible solutions.
Welcome to the Engage community.
While I have not used any online gradebooks other than secure ones like IG Pro and PowerSchool, I heard someone mention http://www.engrade.com/ as a free online gradebook. This gradebook is supposed to be easy, private, secure, comprehensive, and truly free, all of which are important to me.
