Here are a list of our Apps/Tools for Chromebook.

1

Pixlr

Pixlr

Having a good cloud-based photo editing program for the Chromebook classroom is the key to creating a successful environment that allows students to see their own thoughts . Pixlr is able to unlock that volt. This key is accessable to the Chromebook, able to open doors similar to Photoshop. Students can reconstruct, enhance and change photos with ease, because the toolbars are basic and easy to understand – so simple, in fact, that I have seen first graders use Pixlr. F-R-E-E!!!

Geddit

Geddit

This is a great student response system for gaining valuable information about student understanding. Geddit, which is both a Chrome app and a web based platform, is a robust way to gauge understanding straight from the students themselves. Students select their range of understanding on a scale from 1 to 5 giving teachers a quick idea of who has understood the information and whether or not it might be time to move to the next idea. Since students give feedback about their understanding in private, and in real time, teachers can identify needs as they occur.

Movenote

Ever wish you could hear what students were thinking or trying to develop when they wrote a paper or constructed a lab report? MoveNote makes that possible by giving students the ability to add video and audio descriptions to their products right in Google Drive. The process is so simple! Once you select the document, and open MoveNote, the camera will automatically launch. Students can then begin recording additional information or ideas to their documents or presentations. As MoveNote calls it, it is ‘Presentations with Emotions.’ All this for F-R-E-E on the Chrome Web Store.

BookTrack

This ingenious platform puts an entirely new spin on reading and writing. It allows students to create amazing ‘book’ adventures by adding background music to written pieces – turning reading into a completely new and fun experience. What makes it so innovative is that it allows students to add movie-style soundtracks to their reading selections. Students can then record themselves reading, and in the process, hear where they might need to edit their paper or add details. Adding music will allow them to bring their ideas to life!

Kindle Cloud Reader
