SBC C3, A6- My Top 5 Web Tools/Apps

1. PIXIE

Pixie is a software program created by Tech 4 Learning in 2010. It is basically a virtual paper with a crayon and marker box with paint and a sticker book. It has a lot of useful tools and is good for making simple, 30-minute projects. Yuo can use it for any subject. Note- Pixie also has an online version, Wixie! You have to buy it online, the home version I believe costs 25 dollars. Go here for more information.

2. FRAMES

Frames is another program that is almost like Pixie with easier capabilities and without the different tools. Frames was also made by Tech4Learning. I used Frames once to make a book report, and it ended up with my whoel class Skyping with the author! It costs 40 dollars I think, click here for more information.

3. GOOGLE DRIVE

Google Drive is a great addition for your Gmail account. I use it almost every day in school, and I have at least 100 documents, powerpoints, and spreadsheets on there. It is a extremely useful tool, especially with the new add ons. you have to be 13 to have a Gmail and, essentially, a Google Drive. (I got mine because it is a school-based account).

4. FLICKR

I don’t know if this really counts as a tool/app, but Flickr has gotten me a lot of pictures for numerous school projects. No age limit, it’s free.

5. GOOGLE

I had to include Google in general. It is definately a web tool. I just can’t describe it. It’s Google, it has everything. No age limit, it’s free.
