Sites for Kids Recommended in Today's Tribune

Today's Chicago Tribune had some great website recommendations, that I thought were worth passing on to you guys. If you try out some of these, let me know what you think!! ~Mrs. Foellmer

-from Chicago Tribune Sunday section, November 7, 2010,
"Yes, students, there's a world beyond Wikipedia" by Karen Ann Cullotta

...Museum Box (museumbox.e2bn.org): "I'm very fond of this Web site, which allows students to chat, and to create virtual 'boxes' that they can fill with text or video clips."

Live Binders (livebinders.com): "Virtual binders where you can store Web pages. It's really slick."

Prezi (prezi.com): "I love this Web site, which is like PowerPoint kicked up a notch. A really nifty presentation tool."

Debategraph (debategraph.org): "This Web site is a virtual graphic organizer, where students can collaborate and organize their debates and presentations."

Scratch (scratch.mit.edu): "This Web site is great for students between the ages of 8 and 16, and offers a multimedia tool to design graphics with sound to create a video game."


Karina K. can tell you about Prezi, as she used it earlier this tri for a project she did in Miss Coppoletta's LA/Reading class!
