If cloud is kept within the site, then as the words are scrolled over they zoom in.

Great to retell a specific event or story. Students are limited to characters and amount of text that can be used. No account needed. Work cannot be saved.



Sites to use when teachers are compiling a list of websites to give students (bookmarks, compiling sites, shorten urls):
Site allows you to copy and paste a long url to make it shorter and easier to manage. URLS can sometimes be customized.

Set up a free account and one can bookmark sites that is saved on the internet. One can write notes and highlight key information about the site that one might want to to remember later.

Site allows the teacher to type in several urls for a class project. Furly creates one url. When the student types in that one url, he or she navigates from one website to another using page arrows that are added to the top of the page.

Awesome site to compile sites for students to access. Each Blendspace created allows you to access it through a url. This url can be linked on Goggle Classroom or a website for easy access by student. These IDEAS are awesome ways that Blendspace can be utilized in any classroom.

Sites to aid in studying:
A free account must be established first.
