S'Cool Tools of the Week: Learning Upgrade, Wideo, PublicSchoolWORKS

Sep 28, 2014

TOO COOL (PERFECT FOR SCHOOL): Here we go again! We've got our favorite edtech teacher and administrator tools for the week right here, as highlighted in our Instruct newsletter. Our fave S'Cool Tools are:

Free! Learning Upgrade aims to keep student on track for Common Core assessments with courses made up of 60 lessons on Common Core standards include songs and games. Learning Upgrade also provides teachers with class reports on how students are doing on the standards. Get one free 20-student license (if your school has at least 300 students) here. Otherwise, the cost is $30 per student.

Freemium: Liven up your classroom with animated videos using Wideo. Build a presentation using Wideo templates (or from scratch), integrateing music, voice-over options and graphic animations. Upgrade to Startup ($9/month) or Pro options ($49/month) for more music, graphic and video length options.

License: Educators make a serious impact on the lives of their students, both inside and outside of the classroom. PublicSchoolWORKS can help prepare teachers to give students emotional counsel when they need it most. The site’s EmployeeSafe Suite offers over 400 online trainings for school educators, including courses on childhood depression, teen dating violence and a series of suicide prevention modules. Test out the program here.
