Explanation

This page is for any students who are looking to put more than just words into their Utopia proposal. Please use the following resources to embed multi-media into your proposal so that your reader can more fully understand what your utopia looks like and feels like. If you find any other resources that you think might be useful to your fellow utopians, please add them below.

Mr. Wilkoff's Found Resources

Seal Creator: Use this resource to create the emblem of your utopia. A great way to get ideas for the environment of your utopia is to create a matching seal.
Slideshare: Use this resource if you would like to create a PowerPoint of your Utopia summarizing its ideals. This site will allow you to embed that powerpoint into your wiki page, so that your reader will not have to download the PowerPoint file in order to enjoy your work.
Newspaper Clip Generator: Use this resource in order to quickly show the newspaper of your Utopia. You can create news-flashes or daily events through this resource if you would like.
Gcast: Use this resource if you would like to use your cell phone to record a podcast of your Utopia. Give us a tour of what you would see in your utopia. "Interview" someone who lives in this society. Ask someone to describe how their society is different than yours.
Splashcast: Use this resource if you would like to put video, audio, and pictures all together and then embed them onto your wiki page. This resource is a little more complex than some of the others, but you can create something really unique with this one.
Bubblr: We have used this one before, but I thought I would remind you that creating a interactive comic strip of your utopia is a great way of introducing some of the finer points (hopefully not just geography either).
Bitty Browsers: Use this resource if you would like to include another webpage within your wikipage but there isn't any other way of embedding it. This may be a last resort for getting other content onto your Utopia pages, or it could be a way for you enhance your utopia with more rich content.
Google My Maps: Use this resource to create an interactive map on your wikipage. You can put multiple pins in the map and give some information about each one. Unfortunately, you can only create maps of the real world. So, if your utopia is someplace other than earth, you will have to use another resource for creating your own map.
Create a Graph -ables you to create graphs for your page.
Create a Warning Sign-ables you to create a warning sign for your page.
Ninja Text- ables you create a animation that writes text for you.
