Creating Documents and Presentations

Google Docs

part of a suite of free web based tools – sign in with google or yahoo account. Offers more editing options and templates than those found on Google Presentation

Tools for Communicating with Parents and Students

free blogging site designed just for classroom use
Quick and easy setup – no registration and completely free for up to 100mb of storage space
create a free classroom website – they have excellent user support

Tools for Creating Collaborative Student Projects

Not the only site for collaborative sites – pbworks and ning are others. Wikispaces has provided more than 100,000 free advertising-free wikis to educators. Use it as a resource page for your students – they can share notes and references throughout the year. They can use it as a study guide for assessments.
Direct Link to Educator Sign Up: http://www.wikispaces.com/site/for/teachers

flashcard creation tool – can be used by an entire class to create a “card box” that all of the students can study. (images can be included on the cards also)

Educational Alternatives to YouTube

good for those on a limited budget and can be embedded in a blog or wiki for students
similar to teachertube in that both are designed for classroom use. Schooltube generally has less advertising and faster uploads
great resource for foreign language teachers, ESL/EFL teachers, and teachers of students with hearing impairments
