Bored with your presentation?

Try Movenote for your and your students’ presentations.  Movenote is a free Google Chrome extension that you add to your browser.  Simply add your “slides” (JPG images, PDFs, PowerPoint presentations) and you can opt to use the webcam or not as you teach from the slides.  When you’re done, you get either a URL or an embed code to put neatly on to your eCLASS C&I course page!

*Please note: PowerPoint slides do not animate in Movenote.

Math Practice Fun!

Teachers of students in grades 1-8: check out Prodigy Game!  This is a web-based math practice site that is free for teachers.  Teachers can assign specific content topics for students to work on or choose a more general topic (i.e. “First Grade Common Core”).  The teacher dashboard lets teachers see struggling students and top students, as well as other data.  Prodigy has a workspace when the math questions show. The workspace includes an eraser, markers, coins, counters, fraction bars, and base ten blocks. You could embed the game into eCLASS using an iframe generator (One iframe generator option: 7th Space).
