Some bulk resources

The TBI activities of Dominique et Compagnie editions
www.dominiqueetcompagnie.com/pedagogie/activites_tbi.asp
In SMART Notebook or Activinspire format, a collection of free files to use some of the children's books published by Dominique et Compagnie. A great way to make connections between paper and technology!

I review
www.jerevise.fr
A father shares tons of activity sheets for elementary school on this site. Upon registration (free), we receive by email a “pack” of 300 reproducible worksheets in PDF format. Just display them on the IWB and fill them in directly using the annotation tools.

Noise level in the classroom
http://neave.com/fr/balles-sauteuses/
The jumping balls on this webpage get activated more and more as the noise level rises in the class! (You need a microphone plugged into the computer.)

Readability
www.readability.com
An online app that strips a web page of all the non-essentials so that it can focus on text and images. It improves the reading experience on the TBI, for example news articles.

Stopwatch
www.chronometre-en-ligne.com
A simple website that offers a stopwatch or a countdown timer, for whatever it takes to be timed! You can even export the data to keep it.

Allô Prof Library
Collection of explanatory videos in French and mathematics, ideal for introducing a new concept and referring to it again as needed: http://bv.alloprof.qc.ca
Also, interactive review exercises in French and mathematics: http://bv.alloprof.qc.ca/tous-les-exercices.aspx Finally, interactive tools in French, mathematics and chemistry: http://bv.alloprof.qc.ca/tous-les-outils.aspx

 

Make your own interactive exercises

Usina Quiz
http://usinaquiz.free.fr
Create exercises such as multiple choice questions, text with gaps, association, etc.

Classtools
www.classtools.net
In English. Many templates to boost activities, for example the Random Name Picker to choose a name or a word at random. To eliminate advertisements, one can subscribe to the premium version.
.ca / videos.aspx

Textivate
www.textivate.com
Online application in which a short text (up to 500 words) is pasted to automatically generate a series of “drag and drop” style activities allowing the text to be reconstructed in different ways. Interesting in languages to work on the sequence. The activity display is large enough for the IWB and the exercises are done by moving the items with the pointer (finger or stylus). The free version includes ads that are not very annoying, but without the possibility of saving or sharing.
