Wow, what better way to get ready for Thanksgiving than to gather and share stories?! This November, the Great Thanksgiving Listen will take place in living rooms and kitchens across the country — your students can add their voice to the Library of Congress and take part in our national effort to collect the stories of a generation by recording an interview with a loved one. Adobe is partnering with StoryCorps to help bring student stories to life with impactful images and other visual storytelling elements. Highlight special moments in the interview with free tools like Spark Post, Spark Page, and Spark Video. And, if you haven't caught #FlipgridFever yet, this would ignite the classroom!! The StoryCorps website also has lesson plans, implementation tips, teacher toolkits, and a help center. Happy Storytelling!

Wow, we made it through Halloween! Do you have lots of pictures of awesome costumes and fun activities? Or would you like to get ready for the holidays early? How about letting students show their creativity in any season by making amazing graphics for projects, documents, presentations, etc.? Photo Funia has a huge collection of fancy text makers and digital image filters as well as calendar, flyer, postcard, signs, billboard, poster, magazine, and newspaper templates. Also, some of the options will allow you to create animated GIF's-- Great for your students to present their "final products" from a PBL activity! Happy Fun with Photos!

Wow, I forgot what day it was yesterday! So, you're getting the Website of the Week a day late. If you sometimes forget what day it is, too, especially what celebratory day it is (today is National Pumpkin Day, by the way), this week's site can help you out. What National Day Is It is a database of days reflecting the current popular holidays across social media. According to the site, they use data-mining and natural text analysis to work out which national days have the highest significance online. Each day links to information about how many people considered the day as well as a bit of background of the significance of the day. Note: Because most of the info is gathered from social media, the days listed may not have any historical significance or count as "official" holidays and/or days of recognition. And of course not all of the topics may be appropriate for a school setting, so you may want to search outside of class and only project the relevant ideas. It is neat, though, to see what other people deem popular! Happy National Pumpkin Day!

Wow, it's Digital Citizenship Week! What better way to spark a discussion about copyright and attribution than with using awesome images? Finding Creative Commons images through a CC Search (Google does this when inserting and searching within a Google App, too) is a good option for students. However, getting students to attribute those photos correctly can add time to the work exponentially. Photos for Class removes that hassle. It automatically adds a black ribbon across the bottom of the image with the appropriate attribution. Plus, it provides a link to the original in Flickr so you can add it somewhere else. Much thanks to Matt Miller,, for the tip! For even more Digital Citizenship resources, check out the Common Sense site: Happy Digital Citizenship Week!
