Description

Nowadays instead of keeping your students’ writing confined to an exercise book in the classroom let your students use free web-based tools to make the most beautiful online creations. These tools are very simple to use and have friendly interfaces. This keeps students engaged and gives them a sense of achievement as they can easily share their work with their families and friends. The webinar will cover free applications such as Glossi, Youblisher, Microsoft Photostory 3, Slideshare, Authorstream, Slideboom and several others.
