Video Creation Tools

1. Animoto - simple, nice way to get started with making videos, make sure
to get free teacher's account to go beyond 30 second limit.
2. One True Media - simple, like Animoto, but more flexible, can create easy,
longer videos.
3. Jaycut - like Moviemaker, but can access anywhere and much easier to use.



Online Book Clubs

Caitlin Tucker - blog post on Online Book Clubs,
Her video on SchoolTube - Safe, Structure, and Free Online Book Clubs
She recommends using Collaborize Classroom

Joyce Valenza article on book clubs, virtual and otherwise. One of her suggestions - using
LibraryThing, Shelfari or Goodreads, create a group and share titles, have discussion. And even more Joyce Valenza :)

Schools that have Virtual/Online Book clubs:
Oakridge (think this is MS/HS) - uses Collaborize Classroom - this site has examples of
brochures they hand kids with guidelines for virtual discussions, etc.
Pentucket Regional High School - uses TodaysMeet
St. Francis High School - uses Google Groups
