Best embeds: from http://mrssmoke.onsugar.com/3082114


Bookr form PimPamPum – Pulls in photos from FlickR, but allows students to create digital books online. It’s an easy and amazing digital storytelling tool. To find the embed code click Blog This.

Bubbl.us – With this tool you can create a brainstorming mind map and embed it on your wiki. To keep from having students needing accounts to login, this would be a perfect tool to have one teacher account and use the interactive white board to create as a whole class then embed on the class wiki. The embed code is located under the Menu button in the bottom right corner.

Glogster is quickly becoming one of my favorite Web 2.0 tools, and now that there is an educational side, I’m really excited. With Glogster teachers or students can create interactive posters or digital scrapbook pages that provide links out to other sites. It’s a great visual to kick off a unit or wiki. For an example, check out Lit Circles, a site I created with links to support several novels. The embed code is provided when you save the glogster

Wordle – The use of Wordle has become very popular in the past year and with the ability to easily embed them, why not use them on your class webpage? The embed code is found directly beneath the generated Wordle.

BubbleShare – is another slideshow creator except this tool uses fun frames like television sets or a theater stage. The embed code is listed above the slideshow.

Photopeach – This is a fun slideshow creator that comes with audio and the easy ability to add text over your images. The embed code is found underneath the slideshow.

Webpage Links – Wallwisher is a virtual bulletin board to cover with virtual post-its, but I really like to use this as a way to share websites with students or parents.
