Cool New Tools and Time to Try Them

A colleague and I are offering a Web Tools workshop that introduces five new Web 2.0 tools and gives participants time to try the tools. I selected them because they cover a range of grade levels and subject areas and I have tried them out personally. Our tools:
SoundCloud, which is a podcasting/recording tool. Completely free and embeddable.
Prezi, an alternative to PowerPoint or other slideshow creators.
Little Bird Tales, a digital storytelling tool designed for the youngest learners, complete with built-in sound and drawing tools.
Museum Box, where users can "build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual box."
Lucidchart, an online diagram and flowchart software program which is incredibly powerful, yet simple.
