Comics: My favorite comic creators are Makebeliefs, ToonDoon, Friendstrip, Comics Head, and Pixton (Web/iOS/Android).

Infographics: Students can create infographics using Piktochart, Infogram, Adioma, Visme, Smores, Canva, or Genial.ly. For resources and ideas check out ShellyTerrell.com/infographics.

Coding: For resources and ideas follow these hashtags: #coding, #kidscancode, #code, and #hourofcode.

Social Bookmarking: Get students to bookmark their research with free tools and apps like Diigo, Pearltrees, Storify, Pinterest, Livebinders, and Educlipper.

Global Projects: Skype or do a YouTube live event with classes worldwide. To connect with other classes try Skype Education, Epals, or Quadblogging.
