Draw Faces

With various face shapes and features, make a drawing that looks great! With, you actually can become a 'sketch artist'.

Believe it or not, this really does look like one of our staff!

Imagine the possibilities, especially during those self-conscious early teen years when many students think they cannot draw a person.

Real time collaboration

iEtherPad allows users to word process in real time. Great for brainstorming! CAN also use asynchronously. Users need the URL. Creating an account allows you to have your own iEtherPad url as well as designate yourself and selected others as administrators.

Good points

REAL, real time brainstorming
No advertising
Easy to use
Membership is free
Public pads do not need membership
Administrator can add a password to a public pad
Only Administrators has access to security and can change pad to public and add a password.
Public AND password protected allow anyone with the url AND password to write, so students do not need to join or have email.

Story Writing

The UK has created a site of Myths & Legends and encourages the retelling of these stories. This in itself is a great place to visit when studying that genre! However, there is even a better reason. Story Creator 2 allows students to create their own tales with sound and animation. If that were not enough, you can even register your school to enable you to review and approve student's stories. You can download creations and keep them or put them on your own website. Best stories can be submitted to the site's competitions.
