 Welcome to Creative Tools For and By Kids  


Creative Web Tools For and By Kids is a project designed for students, ages 9 to 14, to use emerging technologies for engaging, thinking, learning, collaborating, creating, and innovating. The focus is on the use of free, open-source, or minimal cost tools, so the project can be replicated.  An underlying goal is to demonstrate how advanced technological applications for enhancing learning can be implemented with only a computer and Internet access.

hi...Mrs. Dekorsi, I was just wondering where I put my website that I found and the rating that I gave it. Is it under resources/references?

Nat., look at the cooking example. It went right under the overview and objectives. Look at some other people's posts.
MaC- Haven't heard back. I would like to do it in class- you the interviewer, we are the audience. You should probably start thinking and writing down questions.

Hi, Sidika - did you post your HTML code in the PB Wiki Magic link? See the technology troubleshooting page. If you still have trouble, email me the code from Animato or your login information.

Mrs. D and Mrs. Jackie- I sent a letter (i could not find his email address) to Michael Phelps today with my email address so we can do an interview and i gave him the URL to this website. I also requested an autograph to put on my webpage, and i hope he will email me back and send an autographed photo!

How do you post a voki? PLEASE HELP ME!

Jackie Gerstein, Ed.D. said

at 8:43 am on Oct 30, 2008

To make a Voki - you need to register, follow the directions, and then copy/insert the code as you would do for an Animoto. There are some directions in the Technology Troubleshooting page.

Mrs. D said

If you go to the pg. titled Dekorsi Directions there is an explanation on how to do that with a PC computer. I'm confident you will figure it out.

Steph - I actually had to figure font out for myself. It is a little tricky. You need to highlight your text and format it using the FONT and the SIZE for all text.

Maclayn - It is sooo good to see you again! If you look at the Clustermap numbers, we have been have over 100 visitors per day! As for you movie, one of two things (1) when you add the HTML, you need to make sure that the little box at the bottom left is checked to allow Java, or (2) it is being blocked. I hope you continue to add!

maclaynj said

Hey guys! Long time no see! Jackie, since I don't know what else I could do with my Mini Coopers page and little information I could find about them, I was wondering if I could have another page about Adobe Illustrator and the things you could to with it. I would start after Christmas because that is when I am getting the software/

Maclayn - great to see you! Of course, you can start a new page. Lexi (from my class last year) wanted to do another one too. I love seeing you do another project. I added one for Adode Illustrator.
