In the latest of our series highlighting great online resources, we highlight a fantastic ‘wheel’ deciding site, which reminded us of ‘Wheel of Fortune’ to make the decision process in your class fair and random. For those interested in creating podcasts of teaching and learning, a great free site allows you to record, sending back your recording as a mp3; and a great image site providing high resolution images – always useful for blogs and/or classroom projects.

Bored with slot-type random name generators? Fancy a new way of deciding what to do in class? Wheel decide is a great site, styled in a similar fashion to ‘Wheel of Fortune’, allowing easy creation of wheels, as well as allowing to embed within your own site (See below) as an iFrame, this is a welcome addition in helping your class decision making process.

This is a really useful site, especially for those who continue to be interested in creating podcasts or audio to help the teaching and learning proces. Record mp3 allows you to record straight from your device (we tested on iPad and PC successfully) and once completed you receive your recording back in mp3 format, so easily editable or playable in most audio programs. The site is simple, and includes tips on ensuring that your recording is of good quality. Really useful if you don’t want to download programs to your device that take up valuable memory.

Locating high-quality images which you can use in the classroom and/or online can be tricky, making sure you don’t infringe copyright regulations etc. Captured by Ryan McGuire of Bells Design, the images placed on Gratisography are high quality and high resolution, being made freely available with no copyright restrictions. There is a great mix of safe, stimulating and inspirational images that can accompany blog posts, classroom inspiration or prompts for discussion or writing. The library is ever growing, and certainly one worthy of regular exploration. Click here to visit Gratisography.
