ShareDrop is a free app that allows you to easily and securely share files directly between devices in the same local network, without having to upload them to any server first.
To send a file to another device, open this page on both devices. Drag and drop the file directly on other user's avatar or click the avatar and select the file you want to send. The file transfer will start once the recipient accepts the file.
Tackk allows anyone, to create anything, and share it anywhere. There is no software to download, no login required, nothing to join + no special design or development skills needed. In fact, those who have used Tackk, literally call it "ridiculously simple." And we agree.
Simply visit the Tackk home page and start typing. Tackk about that bike you have for sale. Tackk about your engagement or your new baby. Tackk about your band's upcoming gig. Tackk about your vacation. You can Tackk about anything.
It begins with a story start.
A story start is the first chapter of the book. The rest of the story is up to you.
The story start could be written by a professional writer, a teacher, you or your classmates, or maybe even a celebrity!
You write your version of Chapter 2.
Take the story where you like. The only limits are your imagination and a word count.
At the same time, other BoomWriters will be writing their own version of what happens next.
Submit your entry.
When you're done (and before the deadline), you submit your entry for review.
If it's accepted, you'll get points and BoomDollars. You'll use BoomDollars to purchase accessories for your Boomer avatar.
Vote, Vote, Vote!
You and the other BoomWriters vote on the entry you think is the best.
Of course you can't vote for you own entry, and you won't know whose entry it is you're voting for.
You may be able to vote more than once, which is good, as voting also earns you points and BoomDollars.
Did you win?
If so, then your entry becomes the official Chapter 2 of the book. If not, don't worry because there will be many more chances for you to win.
Read, write and then vote!
The competitions continue until the book is finished. Then, *Boom!* you're a published author!
A real book
The end result? A real book that you, your friends, family, and the whole world can buy. Imagine that, a book with your name in it that you helped write.
Symantec is warning users of a phishing scam that takes advantage of Google Docs that is worming its way around the web. And, since it uses a google.com URL, and even uses Google’s SSL encryption, its could fool even wary users.
However, as Gizmodo points out, just playing it safe, and using some common sense will help you avoid problems.
The scam arrives in your inbox with the subject line “Documents,” and points to a Google Docs link. It shows up in your browser’s address bar as a google.com domain, and it takes you to a fake login page that looks like a genuine Google login page. If you enter your Google login credentials here, the phishers have you.
“The fake page is actually hosted on Google’s servers and is served over SSL, making the page even more convincing,” explains Symantec security expert Nick Johnston. “The scammers have simply created a folder inside a Google Drive account, marked it as public, uploaded a file there, and then used Google Drive’s preview feature to get a publicly accessible URL to include in their messages.”
Following your login via the fake page, you’re taken to an actual Google Doc, and your login info is sent to a PHP script on a compromised server.
To avoid becoming a victim of this sly scheme, just be wary and use common sense. First, be careful clicking links in emails. Yeah, we all do it, especially if we think we know the links are genuine, but be careful. Also, if you receive an email from someone you don’t know, and the subject line is something like “Documents,” well, that’s suspicious in itself.
Also, if you are taken to what is supposed to be a Google login screen, and you are a Google user, and it doesn’t recognize you as such, AND you have to login with all your credentials, be VERY wary.
Engage students and build phonemic awareness by using Alphabet Organizer in the classroom. Students create an alphabet book or alphabet chart with words for each letter of the alphabet. Or choose just one word per letter and upload an image to help early readers make a visual connection between the word and the beginning letter.
Alphabet Organizer features our worksaver so that students can save a draft of their unfinished work or share their final work via e-mail.
Lesson plans on ReadWriteThink illustrate various examples of how the tool can be used in the classroom; for ideas of how to use it outside the classroom, see Alphabet Organizer in the Parent & Afterschool Resourcessection.
