Playlists and mixtapes

Happy Friday!

I don't know about you but as I approach the end  of the school year I really begin to reflect on what went well and what didn't go so well for me instructionaly for 2015-2016.  I try to save  or bookmark resources as I go but sometime I move on so quickly that I forgot I bookmarked them. That's one of the reasons that I created the blog this year so I can go back and reflect on the digital resources here and can go back and review them easily because they are all in one place.  If you are trying to organize your resources  please consider a couple of these ideas.

 Create a Symbaloo page with your digital resources.  Symbaloos are a great visual representations of your sites and or resources.  Also, these can be shared with others in your grade level or department. You can create a free symbaloo account and sign in with your CCSD Google account. These are what we use as the student start page. 

If you have Youtube Videos or clips that you may use again and and again consider making a YouTube playlist. If you are familiar with creating Music Playlists with other services it is the same idea. You can create a list that has all of your videos in one place. For example I may create a Youtube Playlist of, "Science videos for Unit 2"  now, I will always have those videos in one place and know that they are all specifically for Unit 2. Here is a short tutorial of how to make this work

Finally, my new favorite thing of the week. As one of the greatest thinkers of our time MC Hammer once said, "Yo let me bust those funky lyrcis"  Now you can do just that for free with your computer. Cassette Tape   is a Google Chrome Experiment where your students can make and record their own music. Just press play on the cassettee player to hear the beat then press record to record over it.   Don't worry I spared creating my own. 


  1. Hammer time! Thanks Clint for all you do and did this year! -Matt

  2. Thanks Clint, I think Symbaloo might be a good fit in some of our classes.
