MrOwl Resources for Educators

MrOwl is a free online tool that helps you discover, create, and share internet topic playlists, called “branches”, about the things that are important to you. It’s never been easier to keep everything all in-one-easy place and create collections of information with subtopics, links, photos, documents and more. And everything is searchable – even the documents.

The best part is that MrOwl gets wiser as more people use it. The branches that you build help to shape the MrOwl community “tree,” an ever-growing, searchable collection of web links and resources. These branches are curated by real people in the MrOwl community, not a computer, so they’re free of inappropriate content and organized in a way that makes sense. MrOwl is free of advertising, too, so you aren’t distracted by annoying pop-ups or sidebar ads.

Discover MrOwl – Webinar Recording

One of the best ways to learn about MrOwl is to watch the recording of my webinar for teachers, Discover MrOwl: A Free Tech Tool for Organizing, Sharing, and Collaborating. A free professional development certificate is available at the conclusion of the webinar.

Connect with Other MrOwl Educators on Facebook

Are you interested in joining a Facebook group called MrOwl Educators? The group was set up for teachers to learn about new features and get early access to them. Group members can ask questions and share their ideas for using MrOwl in the classroom. A third function of the Facebook group will be to seek feedback about how to improve MrOwl. If you’d like to join the MrOwl Educators Facebook group, fill out this Google Doc form and follow the directions to request access.

To start exploring MrOwl and learning how it works, click over to my profile page and check out some of the branches I’ve created. It’s easy to create a free MrOwl account, but be sure to choose a user name that you don’t mind being public and visible to others. I recommend using your real name if it’s available, which is why I signed up with @laura_candler. After you log in, return to my profile page and follow me! Then grab any branches that you like and explore MrOwl to see what else you can find!
