Tag Galaxy

Well worth a play, Tag Galaxy searches for and displays photos from Flickr as an array of planets. Great for seeing places through the collective lenses of both amateur and professional photographers from over the world.  To get started, try searching for a location such as ‘Egypt’ or ‘Machu Picchu’ or ‘Great Barrier Reef’ – you’ll be amazed at the results!

The Scale of the Universe

How much smaller is a quark than an electron? How does the size of the Vatican City compare to Uluru? Is the Minecraft World bigger or smaller than Jupiter? Of course you’ve all wondered such things (and if you haven’t, just be a good sport and play along), and now you can see the answers for yourself with this fantastic ‘interactivity’ – The Scale of the Universe 2 by Cary Huang.

As you can see, seriously mind blowing and cool stuff! Thanks to Matthew, one of my Year 6 students, for sharing this one.

Are you Symbaloo-ing?

Here’s one of my favourite tools that my students love – Symbaloo is a funky bookmark organiser that uses colourful tiles rather than boring old folders in your web browser. Why not create your own and make it your homepage today!
