Just about everyone has created a Jeopardy-type game using PowerPoint. It's a great tool for reviewing. The problem occurs if you try to post it to your blog. It seems that no matter what you do, when someone opens the link, the entire power point presentation opens. This ruins the effect by allowing students to see answers and questions without the game format.

Jeopardy Labs is a great solution. It is free and easy to use. To create a game you simply assign a password and add content. When you save you'll be given two links: one to play and another to edit.

The new, easy way to collaborate with others. Drag and drop a note, upload an image, add a document and work together. You can even add a to do list so everyone is clear on what they need to do next.

Many people think of epals as simply a tool for getting secure email accounts for students - and it is that, but it is so much more. If you'd like to expand your classroom beyond the physical building - this is the site for you. Find other classrooms with which to collaborate. You can join one of their projects or simply do one of your own. This is also a good place to find others with which to Skype.

If you're interested in getting an account for yourself and/or your students, contact your Technology Resource Teacher.
