Tech Tools for Literacy

This weekend I caught up with some of my journal reading.  It is amazing how many wonderful ideas are out there, and like every teacher, I  never have enough time to try everything I want to try.   So I was happy to find a podcast between Franki Sibberson, a literacy expert I follow regulary, and first-grade teacher Kathy Cassidy.  Kathy talked about her own classroom and the tech tools she uses with her literacy program.  Here is her top ten. 

Storybird

Blogs

Skype

Class Wiki

Glogster

My Story Maker

Kerpoof

Animoto

Wordle

Audioboo

 Are you already using several of these, or do you have your own top ten?

Kathy’s site can be found at:  http://kathycassidy.yolasite.com/  It has examples of student work and lots of ideas. 

Hope you find something you can use!
