Looking back to the beginning of February, I discussed URL Shorteners and there are a bunch to choose from. Now they are great for a single URL, but what about when you have a bunch of links you want to give access to? In comes Symbaloo as a simple graphic way of displaying links for students to click on.
March 4th – Symbaloo
Symbaloo has been a life saver in the elementary school I work at. Our Director of Technology introduced me to it and created a robust one for all of the websites the classrooms use.
Symbaloo simply makes a grid and uses the logo of the website to create tiles to fill it in – but you can also give it a separate name – in case you want your students to go to Lightbot on March 4th, you can name in March 4th and the students know the plan for the day!
This has been a great help because just like the URL shorteners, teachers everywhere are finding how difficult it can be for students of all ages to type in these loooonnnnggg URL addresses.
