  Adobe Spark logo  Adobe Spark is a new suite of free tools for creating images, videos, and simple web pages. The blog-o-sphere was all abuzz about Adobe Spark late last week so I gave it a try too. Adobe Spark can be used in your web browser or you can download the Adobe Spark video, image, and web page iPad apps. You and your students could use Adobe Spark to create short informational videos. The recording feature in Adobe Spark's video editor makes it very easy to precisely control the audio on each part of your videos. The Adobe Spark web page tool provides students with a great way to tell stories through pictures. And the image tool provides you with a good way to create a graphic that can grab students' and their parents' attention in a social media posting from you or your school.

Stackup logo   Create & Track Reading Goals in Chrome with Stack Up. Stack Up is a free service that aims to help you give students credit for time spent reading quality articles online. On Stackup you can create reading challenges for your students. A challenge could be something like "read current events for 60 minutes this week." After creating the challenge you invite students to join it. Students can join by entering a challenge code on Stackup or you can invite them by email.

Zing logo  Zing is a service that offers thousands of free fiction and non-fiction ebooks to teachers and students. On Zing you can browse for books by topic, language, or reading level. You can read the books in your web browser on a laptop or tablet. Yes! Zing is free for educators, parents, and students. This is NOT a temporary free trial.

Read Write Think logo  Read Write Think is a great place to find story starters and interactive writing templates. A good example of that is found on Read Write Think's Compare & Contrast Map. The Compare & Contrast Map is a template for creating a comparative essay. Using the template students are guided through writing three styles of comparison essays. To get started students identify two things that they wish to compare and or contrast. Then they choose if they want to write a "whole to whole" essay, a "similarities to differences" essay, or a "point to point" essay. Whichever essay type they choose, students are guided through the types of information they should put in each part of their essays. When their essays are complete students can share them via email or print them. If you haven't spent much time exploring the resources on Read Write Think's classroom resources page, I encourage you to do so.

The shift toward technology in education has been accelerated, and the vast array of digital tools now available to educators has had a significant impact on instruction, in many ways revolutionizing the field. But the fact remains—teachers are the driving force behind every student’s education. They are the ones who animate learning.

As we continue to implement new instructional tools into our curricula, educators must continue to develop a collective knowledge base of best practices grounded in critical thinking and provide sound pedagogical support to new teachers.
