Edcanvas – one of my favourite resource for the classroom!

blendEdcanvas (now Blendspace) is one of the best digital resources I have come across in a long time! Once you set up your account, you can start collating all of your digital resources onto your canvases to create “living“ online lessons.

What`s best is that the process involved in creating your canvases is very simple. Find what you like and drag it onto your canvases.

You can even install a bookmarking tool (an add-on that will live on your toolbar) which allows you to send websites and videos straight to your Edcanvas with a simple click. This will send that link to your bookmarks. These links will get stored in your Bookmarks, which can then be dragged into any of your canvases when you need them. Here is the link for placing that tool onto your browsing toolbar.
