Biteslide

Biteslide is easily one of my favorite Web 2.0 sites for creating dynamic presentations (known as slide books) in a safe environment.  Biteslide is a fantastic site for creating presentations that can contain all types of media, such as: video, images, text, links and more.  Once a presentation is completed it can then be downloaded, printed out, or best of all embedded into another site/blog.  This is an ideal site to engage students, use for any subject, and great for educators as no student email is required (teachers create the student accounts).  Also, Biteslide can easily be used to Flip a Classroom or for Project Based Learning!!

Finally, Biteslide has recently released "project kits" which are digital lessons aligned to Common Core Standards.  These kits focus on a wide range of subjects w/ more to come.

NameCoach

NameCoach is a wonderful web service that educators are using to learn student's names and pronounce them correctly.  This is especially useful w/ commencement/graduation ceremonies on the horizon.  The way this works is simple as a teacher creates a name/web page and then has the student's speak their names.  The audio gets embedded into a page and a user can access them all on one page at anytime.  Also, NameCoach makes it very easy to share recordings and keep track of student's name/email.  It's easy, accurate, and 100% safe for schools to use.
