Top Sites to Get Students to Create

These are my favorites tools you can use to get your students presenting! Included is a brief description and helpful links to facilitate using these tools more effectively in the classroom. I have also included the links to the free educator accounts for each of these sites.

Prezi-the alternative to PowerPoint. Create non-linear presentations with images, text, video, and cool transitions.





  • Google Tools for Educators- Students collaborate in real time to create slideshows, drawings, documents, and more that are on the web and can easily be embedded. Google has numerous free apps that make collaboration and creation easy!
  • VoiceThread- Integrate slides, drawings, videos, and images. People can leave comments in a variety of formats. See these resources for examples.
  • Glogster- An interactive and multimedia poster. 
  • Zoho Shows- Similar to Google apps, but you also have great drag and drop features! Very useful alternative if you can’t get Google apps in your school. Includes pre-built themes, clipart and shapes.
  • Animoto- Make videos with creative common images and audio. Upload your own images, video clips, and audios.
  • Empressr-Upload video, images and audio to create cool slideshows with impressive effects. Use the charting and table tools, import images from Flickr, embed your presentation on your blog, and create a backchannel with Twitter during your presentation.
