Acknowledging great stuff – Triptico eLearning

Triptico

I’m always really happy when I run into websites that are developed by teachers. Teachers with the background and experience to know what might help other teachers and also foster learning. So it was a joy to clasp eyes on Triptico eLearning Systems.

The flash based resources developed by David and Simon at Triptico are excellent. I’ve listed some of my favs below but please take a look at their full library. Further, they respond to teacher’s requests to develop other needed tools – so it can’t get much better!

Please visit and say thank you to these wonderful gentlemen and elearning scholars! They can be found on twitter at http://twitter.com/triptico_eLearn

    WHAT I USE

Click on Resources to get to their offerings. Most are IWB compatible too! I’ve made this handy bookmark of flash and IWB resources and many of Triptico’s offerings are there too.

1. WORD MAGNETS – Now also with a handy Pro version, this is by far the best offering. A teacher can easily present material. I use it for concept building or brainstorming vocab. Also, for getting students to put together fragmented sentences. Russell Stannard has a screencast showing much of the specifics of this.

2. SPINNERS – So many and ones you can easily adapt. I use the 8 spinner and write in student’s names. They now even have a double spinner where you can put in two different categories. Great for creating sentences or domino story creating! Also, even create a quiz with a spinner – perfect for quick review!

3. Scoreboard. Simple scoreboard for quickly keeping track of points in class! Like the timers, spinners etc – simplicity is the teacher’s friend.

4. Image Match. This is the bomb for language instruction! Pictures provide great context and you can use this in so many ways. It takes a while to load the first time but is well worth the wait. I won’t explain here…you’ll see, its use is quite evident.

But much more that might enliven and energize your own classroom!

    Great for online teaching and collaborating. I use it for working on my designs with other in my field.
    Its free and pretty simple – you just upload your file and invite others to view it together.
