Places to find free images
- Pixabay (my favourite source of public domain images)
- Icons – The Noun Project
- Music notation library
- Guitar chord symbols
- Ukelele chord symbols
- Music fonts
My favourite source of videos is the Internet Archive (Moving Image Archive). Try the Animation and Cartoons, Animation Shorts, Comedy or NASA collections.
My favourite source of music files is the collection by composer Kevin MacLeod on Incompetech. You can search for music by mood or genre. You will need to acknowledge the composer if you use his music in a project.
4. Formative Assessment Session
Links to resources below. Don’t forget to search for existing quizzes where possible, before creating something from scratch. Save or “favourite” the quiz so you can find it easily in the future. In many cases you can also copy/duplicate the quiz and then edit it if it doesn’t quite suit your needs.
Assessment resources we looked at:
- Create a Kahoot here (to PLAY a Kahoot game go here)
- TED-ED (we didn’t get time to look at this one!)
- Google Forms
- QR Code generator (QR Stuff) – this is the website I use to create QR codes
