Promethean Planet Australian Flipcharts, Weblinks and Resources is a collection of all these resources in the one location.

Learning Objects is a collection of favourite learning objects from The Learning Federation.

EtherPad is a Realtime Collaborative Text Editing site that allows multiple people to work on the same text simultaneously. Great for collaborative storywriting.

Pencil Animation If you are just wanting to try out animation, and see if it might fit in with your class, then there is a great free product called Pencil .. It is available for MAC, PC and Linux!

This lets you or your students build up animations using frames (like a flick book animation) and export them in various formats including FLASH files that you or they can embed in Promethean Flipcharts.

It is great on the Activboard because the pen is the natural interface for a program like this... and you can use the "onion skins" (Seeing what the previous page included) to help when drawing details because it is all so much bigger.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Lesson ideas...

- Illustrate how a seed grows
- Develop an animation showing how planets, moons and the sun all move
- Show the cycle of a four stroke engine
- Make characters act our certain moods or activities
- illustrate a life cycle

Or just have fun!
