Speaking, Sounds, and Pops…

Weekly Web Wonders

Sorry about last week’s absence.  I was out on Monday and that, of course, throws everything off!

  • Students, parents, teachers, and administrators can participate in Speak Up, a national survey regarding technology use in schools.  Besides being a part of national statistics, each school has access to its own results.  That means it’s a great tool for districts planning for technology purchases and professional development.
  • It’s nice to have a collection of sound effects and music loops for multimedia projects.  Add Soundsnap to your list of resources.  Their extensive library is comprised entirely of content submitted by users and is very copyright friendly.
  • Looking for elementary math activities?  Take a look at Johnnie’s Math Page.  It is what it says, “links to interactive math tools and activities for teaching and learning.”
  • The software you used to run on your desktop machine is now found on the web.  Who needs desktop publishing for newsletters?  Use LetterPop and “You can make Amazingly Creative Newsletters in minutes.”
  • The Michigan Association of Computer Users in Learning (MACUL) is looking for “Technology Integration Champions” to apply for a professional development grant.  Are you interested in putting a school team together?  Awardees receive complimentary registrations to the MACUL conference as well as attendance to tech workshops that will benefit student achievement.

  1. Kevin,

    Thanks for the sound resource. It is just what some teachers need.

  2. I taught a podcasting workshop today and what teachers really liked about Soundsnap was that it was easy to preview each sound. There’s a little Flash? player for each file and it plays them quickly.
