1 ) How To Create An Awesome Infographic
- Infographics are sprouting up everywhere online and they can be a
great addition to any lesson. With infographics on pretty much
anything, it can be easy to add in these informational visuals as a way
to meet the needs of your visual learners.
- This website has a created a great infographic on how to create
infographics. I've had my students create their own infographics once
but never sat down and formally went through anything like this. I am
definitely saving this to use in my classroom next year!

2 ) CBC Digital Archives
- The CBC archives houses film clips, audio tracks and images that have
been featured in CBC over the years. These digital archives can be
easily accessed and allow a great "window to the past".
- This website is great for any Social Studies class and is perfect for
revisiting newscasts about historical events, but these resources can
also be used in any classroom as they cover a wide variety of topics.
- There is also a great "For Teachers" section that features lesson plans,
support documents and activity suggestions.
3 ) Sound Gator
- Have you ever had your students work on a video project and had them
wandering around the school trying to recreate sound effects for their
project? Sound Gator is an online collection of free sound effects that can
be easily downloaded and inserted into various projects.
- Organized by genres like "Sports Sounds" and "Human Sounds", audio
clips can be easily searched and downloaded as MP3 files. Perfect for
any digital storytelling and/or video project!
