Are you someone that apologizes for having so many tabs open when someone else is on your computer? Look into OneTab! It’s a new favorite tool for saving a whole slew of tabs that you need access to at a later time. With one click you can condense all open tabs into a single page and open them again when you’re ready to continue working. You can even generate a shareable link to your saved tabs. One Tab is a great solution for sharing resource links with students and colleagues.

Gamification can really completely change the atmosphere of any classroom! Check out a spelling lesson done with Kristie Lare's 4th Grade Special Education class at PES! The students loved it and excelled! Check out Genially or Gimki for all of your Gamification needs!

Have your students create Tik-Tok inspired mircolessons! Microlesson are short videos that are easily repeatable much like how Tik Tok videos work!The benefit of not having to absorb large amounts of information is that the brain is less likely to become overwhelmed. While traditional courses might have a presentation including a video, text, images, and animation, a microlesson will typically impart information through a short video or infographic. Have students take small portions of a lesson and teach those parts via video of 3 minutes max via WeVideo or Flip. Download those videos to a Genially or YouTube Channel for students to help review for an upcoming assessment.
