American Association of School Librarians, announced the new top 25 Best Websites for Teaching and Learning. Of those twenty-five, seven have previously been explored in posts on this blog, Popplet, Comic Master, My Story Maker, Quicklyst, SpiderScribe, Stixy, and Wiggio. The first on the new list under Media Sharing, Standards for the 21st Century Learner, is Projeqt. Projeqt is a free web 2.0 application whose site motto is:
dynamic presentations for a real-time world.
Upon signing up for an account you are asked for your full name, a desired username, email address, password and acceptance of the Terms of Service. (Due to statements in the TOS users under the age of thirteen must have parental or guardian consent to use this site.) A confirming email is sent immediately. Across the top of the page are links to the Home page, Features of this application, Examples of other Projeqts and the Blog which contains updates to the site and newer examples.
When a Projeqt is completed it can be edited, deleted or duplicated. To embed a Projeqt simply copy either the small or large HTML code provided. I created a Projeqt listing those books read to date in my Book-a-Day Challenge for the summer of 2012.
With a Projeqt stacks, a group of slides added to an initial slide, can be created You can work in Projeqt on your laptop computer, tablet or mobile phone. Rather than creating a Projeqt from scratch you can also upload a previous presentation and incorporate it into Projeqt.
The dashboard for creating a Projeqt was easy to understand; moving slides within a presentation was as simple as click and drag. I highly recommended Projeqt to be placed in your virtual toolbox. I can't wait to see how an uploaded project works within this application.
