Edmodoworld

Principal function(s): Blogging Course management

An educational website that allows teachers to share materials with students, prepare quizzes, have students collaborate on projects, give grades, and more. It can also serve the function of a virtual exchange platform where teachers can meet others, and share and exchange their knowledge and resources. It is a new and partially paid version of the old Edmodo.

Evaluation: A great tool for course organisation, facilitating activities, assessing, and grading. An excellent -although paid for the premium version- alternative to Moodle, especially for primary and secondary education. Parents also have (limited) access to the contents, which allows all the participants of this teaching-learning process to be actively involved and up-to-date. Average IT skills required for its use.

Cost: Free with registration + premium plans available

Write & Improve (A tool to improve writing in English)

Write & Improve is a free online tool developed by the University of Cambridge to help English language learners improve their writing skills. Students choose their level and then receive a selection of writing tasks that match it. Once the assignment has been submitted, the tool automatically assigns an appropriate grade and gives feedback on the writing. Students can later incorporate it into the original text. They can also create their own writing assignments.... View details
