There are many online tools that can help teachers differentiate instruction and personalize learning. A few of my recent favorites are: Storyjumper- help kids create and publish their own story book : http://www.storyjumper.com/ Storybird- Collaborative storytelling/publishing online http://storybird.com/ Glogster- allows students to create digital posters- my high school sophomore is using this now: http://edu.glogster.com/ Graphic organizers for brainstorming and ordering information: http://www.eduplace.com/graphicorganizer/ Voicethread: http://voicethread.com/ Adds audio and conversations to pictures, slides There are a bunch of other ideas here as well: http://theapple.monster.com/benefits/articles/8529-10-technology-enhance... What kind of online tools do you use in your classroom or would you consider using? Have you considered adding blogging or wikis into your classroom to help students create a personal learning profile/collection of their work that they can share with others? What kind of things have you found most helpful as web-based tools?

I am an advisor at the Birchwood Blue Hills Charter School that uses an online project organizational tool called Project Foundry. This Milwaukee based company that has created a platform for guiding, organizing and tracking student progress in project work. We are a project based school and this product has been extremely valuable in enhancing our day to day activities in student driven curriculum. To learn more go to www.projectfoundry.org
