BeeClip has now become BiteSlide

 

Beeclip EDU is a web design & scrapbooking site that has been designed specifically for teachers, students, and learning environments.

Scrapbooks are a creative and fun way to express ideas using text, videos, images and much more. There is a fully functioning free version of Beeclip EDU which is limited to 1 teacher and 30 students. A good way to start.

Everything you and your students create is kept in what is known as a ‘walled garden’. Only students and teachers that you authorise are able to access the walled garden, and content can only be published to the web with your authorisation. Clicking the ‘editors’ button in the scrapbook allows pupils to add editors by their Beeclip EDU username or email address. To keep things secure, students can only add editors who are in their classes.

A quick and effective way of gathering and presenting many forms of outcomes, such as diaries, scrapbooks, moodboards, photo albums, leaflets, pamphlets, collages, portfolios, project write ups, posters, booklets, journals and more. It’s drag’n drop so collect, cut, create, collate and collaborate.

We’d love to hear how YOU, and your pupils, get on if you try out this tool.
