Tool # 5

I have been exploring two new (to Me) Web 2.0 programs Glogster.edu and Wordshift.  Both of them will be very helpful for me.

Wordshift is really cool because it can take a word and it creates a visual thesaurus.  Because we  have so much vocabulary that my students are not familiar with, a thesaurus is a great help.  I can see how this can help ESOL students and Sped students especially.

As for Glogster, it is fun, has lots of animated graphics, backgrounds, you can add in sounds and videos and I know the students will pay extra attention if they are uploaded to flipcharts.  Very fun and educational and I know I will use these happily!
