Another excellent creative tool for students is Pixton. We allow kids under 13 to use the site, and we offer a private educational version as well.

I agree with Jill. This is becoming a terrible issue for the Under 13 student. Web sites are changing their terms to not allow Under 13. We are just going back to software on the computer and using Discovery Education for the digital media. I would love to see a "kid friendly" list.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for the Shout-Out! My students did love making those videos and really learned the concepts so much better than if they were to just read a chapter and answer questions from their textbook. It's not difficult for teachers to replicate projects like these; it's just a matter of taking a look at what other teachers are doing and seeing how you can make it your own with whatever resources (including time and other constraints) you may have. You offer some wonderful suggestions in your post. Thanks again!

The frustrating thing is that so many of these tools are FANTASTIC but have terms of service that do not allow use for children under 13 years of age. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see specific resources for this age group. Picnik, Slide Share, Prezi and Slide Rocket don't allow use under 13...
