Today in Cool Websites and Tools, we take a look at 5 cool websites, including creating your own Twitter bootstrap theme, two sites that deal with maintaining your privacy in the social media world, math instruction for students, and an interactive study notes service. Read on below!
Bootstrap Magic – allows you to easily create your own Twitter Bootstrap theme. See instantly what you are changing on the content. Import your own variables and CSS. Get the colors that you love with Colorpicker. Add awesome webfonts from Google Webfonts.
Ready Or Not – This app shows how people could use your social-media posts to find you in the physical world. It uses GPS data attached to Twitter and Instagram posts to create a map of where someone’s been posting from recently. Try to find yourself, your friends, or your favorite celebrity! Where are you most likely to be at 2:00 on a Tuesday? Then follow the links and find out.
GeoSocial Footprint – A geosocial footprint is the combined bits of location information that a user divulges through social media, which ultimately forms the users location “footprint”. For Twitter.com users, this footprint is created from GPS enabled tweets, social check-ins, natural language location searching, and profile harvesting. This website provides twitter users with an opportunity to view their geosocial footprint.
Ten Marks – presents math instruction and practice in a clear, manageable format that is complete with helpful hints, video lessons, and interventions. When a student doesn’t do well on a topic, TenMarks provides immediate and targeted intervention. The program analyzes precisely the areas in which the student is struggling, and assigns an “Amplifier” which diagnoses the root cause of the issue.
Classmint – is an interactive study notes service rooted in research-proven scientific techniques that help to learn faster and apply learned knowledge. Classmint lets anyone create annotable, audible, beautiful notes that can be folded like a paper. It also maintains automated revision list to aid in timely revision. Students and teachers can keep their notes private or publish them.
