Just created an animoto using the free educator plus account for the CBCA 2011 Shortlisted Books. See the blog post here.
The JSSALCLibrary wiki has resources I have been gathering for Term 3. Let me know if you have anything to add or share.
Have you used BUBBL.US?
It is a simple Web 2.0 tool tobrainstorming and mind map.
Year 4 students are using this to gather their thoughts about their current unit of inquiry about water pollution.

Another great aspect of using bubbl.us is you don’t need to register. This wiki gives you instructions about how-to use bubbl.us.
