    {freezeray.jpg} FreezeRay is in association with Great Barr School, a specialist Science college. It offers some flash files, templates, and teachers' guides. My Science department chair said she can use every single flash movie for Biology classes that she teaches. She just wished there were more of them available on the site.

    It is a scientific stock photography library of light microscope pictures and electron microscopy images featuring science and biomedical microscopy photos. Lots of flash animation, which works well with SMART Notebook video player. These images are copyrighted. You may create an account for educational use of the website.

    Nail It! Ghost It!
    Two small apps that can be used over the digital ink layer. Watch the video (Teqsmart) to learn more about how you can use these two applications with the Smart Notebook. Also get links to the downloadable applications from the Teqsmart site. (Teachers in my school district, you cannot download to school computers, including laptops, until these programs have been approved. See your IT dept.)

    Bloomington High School
    {Bloomington_High_School.gif}
    Nancy Powell, High School Lead Math Teacher, Bloomington, IL has created a website loaded with Math Resources and links for SMART users, all levels K-12. Interactives, flash, Senteo Response resources, games, online tutorials, and tools. I plan to spend some time at this site and showcase some of her best resources for you.

    Shine + Write
    For elementary Math teachers, this website offers free (but you can buy a license for more flexibility) software from Transum software. Go to Transum then click on the link for Shine + Write. Good for warm-up activities??? One of the programs I liked on this site was the eQuation Generator.

    Merriam-Webster's website features a daily buzzword. Included with the word is the part of speech, definition, an sample sentence containing the word, and a multiple choice question for which word could be used to replace it in the sentence without changing the sentence's meaning. The multiple choice is interactive. Shows the student if there answer was the correct one. The site also features four games for vocabulary building.

    Another visual search website that is interactive. I performed a search for slavery (see image below). What does this site do for you? Spezify searches all types of media (blogs, videos, real-time messages, sounds or images) and mixes them visually onto a webpage. Like Glogster on sterioids but the interactive page is created based on your search criteria. After performing the search, you can trim down what is displayed on the screen (hide images, hide text, hide video, hide sound, or hide Tweets.)

    Google Image Swirls
    If you like Prezi, you will like Google's Image Swirls. You can go to their URL and perform a search. I searched Civil War then chose Civil War Maps.
    {google_image_swirls.jpg}
    At that point, I then chose the swirl I wanted to display. The swirl looks like a Prezi, sort of. I chose the Civil War map that displays the confederates states gray, border states red, and union states blue. When you click on one of the images, the URL for the image source is displayed and you can link out to the source. Anyway, take a look at the site. I think you will LIKE it for most content areas.

    created by students that I really liked. This glog is several pages. The homepage explains the purpose of the glog then links to other pages where different types of poetry are collaboratively created.
    My Hero
    
    This website offers free project-based learning resources. Another site I really like. MY HERO’s allows students who are visual learners to participate and express themselves through the creation of an original work of art that can be accompanied by a written component and published online. Click on the link to see an example of a student-created lesson called
