Cool Tools for Schools

Keith Heggart High School Teacher from Sydney, Australia

Just thought that I'd share this website, simply because I think it's a treasure trove of excellent resources for online learning.

I've used Zoomerang (in the quiz and poll tools section) for professional development, to tailor presentations to individual's needs. I imagine it would have lots of different applications for use in the classroom, or across the whole school.

What have you used? How did it go?

www.quia.net is an online resource you can use for free for 30 days to see what you can do with it. I subscribed after the 30 days because just using the automatic grading for online created tests is awesome, and lets you get grading done ontime and without spending hours actually doing grading. You can create tests and quizzes and games and other activities, and post them to this site so you can use them and so can others. I love it, and will continue to use it.

Hi Sherrie,
Thanks for the post - I've seen a lot of test software (like Starquiz, for example - http://www.cosmicsoft.net/starQuiz/) but QUIA certainly looks impressive. Shame it's not free for longer.

What other online tools do you use?

I personally got it for my class because it is just $29 and if you get your school to subscribe it is even cheaper. I really do like it. Hey, did you get the response email I sent you about the other things I do?
