Stuff That Rocks for the Week of January 20

In this week’s edition of Stuff That Rocks, I got to play around with a different template in  Yup, I’m addicted. If you haven’t checked it out by now, please do. It is my official happy place.

I’ve been perusing Twitter all week and found two amazing hacks I didn’t know you could do. Jake Miller shares how he sets audio to play for a subset of Google slides, but not for others. Kasey Bell blew my mind with directions on how to create an animated gif from a YouTube video. I love Twitter.

I also wanted to share 3 of my favorite tools that will make your life so much easier:

  • Virtual Manipulatives from The Math Learning Center
  • Windows 10 Video Editor
  • Template Tab by Alice Keeler

Hopefully you will find these resources useful. If you have something you think other educators should know, please let me know in the comments section. Click here to view the presentation in full screen mode. It’s going to ask if you want to hear the background music. Yes, you do.

Stuff That Rocks for the Week of January 13

RIP Rock the Lab. I decided last year to no longer maintain the site because of the time it took away from my personal life. The archived version that I moved to this blog had outdated resources and broken links, so I made the decision to permanently remove the site. However, I do want to continue to provide you with all of the content I was either making myself or curating from other content creators on the web. Stuff That Rocks will be a weekly post that shares inspirational lessons or tools that can support engagement and interactive lesson design. Check out 5 things I found recently that will hopefully rock your week.
