Anyone familiar with software for making interactive lessons?

Asked by pallen123 (1510 points ) April 28th, 2010

I’m looking for software or a website that let’s you easily create interactive lessons.

Specifically I’d like to create interactive lessons for kids with special needs. Has anyone come across software that let’s you easily create matching exercises, quizzes, games, etc. that you can personalize with words and images?

You can do this with most presentation “slide deck” type software such as power point.

Open office is free and has one that will work.

Basically, all you have to do is set up an element in on a particular slide as a link to another slide. When you click on that particular element the slide you linked to will be displayed.

My son has even coded up a few basic “shoot em up” video games using this technique.

Are you looking for something free? You can download the Smartboard software for a free trial (you don’t need a board to use the software). www.smarttech.com

Also Kidspiration and/or Inspiration have a lot of potential. You can download a free trial of that as well. www.inspiration.com

We use www.bubbl.us frequently as well.

ComicLife is an awesome program that is extremely interactive. www.plasq.com/comiclife/

www.readwritethink.org has a lot of pre-made interactive lessons, that can also be chanegd.

If you are a school employee and your school buys Smartboards, you can use the software free at school or home, even if you don’t have one installed in your classroom.

smart boards are great, once you use the software. Teachers use them as glorified dry erase boards, and they’re so so so much more useful.
