Created by Kim Ball, a teacher of Gifted and Talented students in San Antonio’s North East Independent School District, The Producer’s Toolbox is a great resource for anyone, teacher or student, who is interested in creating multimedia presentations. It has links to video, audio, and research sites, as well as other fun extras.
- Teachers can create their own websites on the site, designing different pages with different assignments for students based on ability levels or multiple intelligences. This could be an alternative to a menu or tic-tac-toe board.
- Students can create their own websites as final products for independent studies based on rubrics.
I haven’t had a chance to try this one with students, yet, but it shows great promise. With videos of different math challenges and supporting resources for K-12, this site has great potential for allowing students to do some independent critical thinking.
