Inkle Writer Reminds Me of Choose Your Own Adventure Stories

Do you have a student(s) who would benefit from a more creative outlet for writing? Well, if you a familiar with choose your own adventure books, you might want to check out Inkle Writer. The idea is pretty simple: write a book with links in it to take the reader to different portions of the book depending on what they click on. It gives the writer their book to share with others right within their browser window and the page gets longer as they click on the different pieces. If you want to check it out for yourself, click here for an example.
Conveniently, they don't require students to be able to access outside email in order to start writing and the tool is 100% free. You can see their information about Inkle in education on this webpage and there are step by step directions to get started on this page.

Check it out and let me know what you (and your students) think! I'd love to see our creative writing students get their hands on it.

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
