Triptico – “Interactive Resources for Imaginative Teachers”

| September 17, 2011 | 2 Comments 

All praise to David Riley (@David_Triptico on Twitter) for creating a truly valuable set of classroom tools in Triptico IWB Toolkit… and all for FREE!

The Triptico application works on PC and Mac computers – as well as many tablet devices – and allows teachers to instantly access an ever-increasing library of customisable interactive resources.

At the moment there are 17 free tools, including simple timers and student selectors to quizzes, a Random Task Generator, scoreboards, Word Magnets and image & text spinners.

The application is free, and new resources are added regularly. Superb stuff. Give it a spin!

Phraseup*

Sometimes you know what we want to write, the sentence is nearly perfect, but you can’t figure out that elusive word. You need phraseup* which assists with writing, by suggesting possible combinations to fill-in the words you can’t remember, along with definitions, synonyms & translations to other languages.
What are you * for?

Doodle

Thank you to Claus Berg for recommending Doodle, when we were arranging times to plan our events in Denmark. Doodle is a very quick, and efficient, way of gathering arranging a time for a meeting.

Doodle eliminates the chaos that comes from scheduling and saves you a lot of time and energy when you’re trying to find a time to bring a number of people together.

Instead of using just one option, you can propose several dates and times and the participants can indicate their availability online.

Must go. I have a meeting to attend!
