Randall Tech Tips: Student Projects

Student Projects

Word Clouds:

1) Click here for some sites which generate word clouds.

2) Another way to make word clouds is to use the "tag cloud generator" app in the Add-ons menu in Google Documents. When you have a Google Document open, open the Add-ons menu and search for "tag cloud generator." The Tag Cloud Generator Add-on will create a word cloud in the right-hand margin of any of your Google Documents that contain more than one hundred words.

 

 

Ideas for Student Projects

  • Glogster.Edu. Students can create digital posters for class projects. The LMC has a subscription to this site for 200 students.  Please see Michelle if you would like to use the site.  It is different from glogster.com Glogster Edu 
  •  Storybirds are short, art-inspired stories you can make and share on any device Storybirds
  •  My StoryMaker lets you control characters and objects -- and it creates sentences for you! Or, you can enter your own words. Once you are done with your story, you can print it out      Storymaker

Book Reviews

Randall students can write reviews for books in our library by logging in to the computer catalog, searching for a title, clicking on the title, then clicking on reviews, then clicking on  “add review”.  The review is then sent to Michelle to approve, edit or delete.  When the review is published, it is published anonymously. Wenda’s class recently wrote reviews as a culminating project.  Because the system will time you out if you take too much time writing, it is suggested that students write the review in Google Drive, then copy and paste their review to the catalog.  Please let Michelle know if you would like your class to do this.
