Tool 5

This tool (Stupeflix)allows for the creation of some fun items that I think students could use to make presentations and to create visuals.The video of my new grandson below was created there

This tool is awesome to inrtroduce a new unit and to get students anticipation up. I think students would enjoy using it as well.

Tool 4

I placed both a document and a form on Google docs and invited members of the staff on my famous to respond. The first response came very quickly and I am awaiting other responses. I think using this section of Google could help share information with students as well as being an avenue to communicate with the students homes. I also think this tool will be useful for collaboration with fellow teachers when time does not allow a face to face conversation.

Tool 3

The video below was from U-Tube and I think it would work well in a unit on probability.  Compound probability 

For fun in math class in the begining of the year, this video shows how mistakes can be made in the thinking of math!

In the tool exploration it was interesting to look at the copyright rules. Fair use and referencing are part of the masters program and there. Was little that was new. The dropbox tool is great and I could see being able to put information  into this spot for my students to use from home!
