Trick.ly adds the ability to password protect the url. This could add a layer of learning and fun to accessing websites in the classroom. Give your students a Trick.ly shortened url with a secret clue that helps students “unlock” the website. For example, if you are using National Geographic Maps website with your students, don’t just send them to the website, give them a clue that is related to the website such as “Capital of Colorado”. Students have to correctly solve the puzzle to unlock access to the game. The password “Denver” would provide students with access to the website. Create Trick.lyshortened url’s with math, geography, history, spelling, vocabulary, science, or foreign language problems built in. Make the clue to solve related to the end website that students will access. Kids enjoy solving problems, adding a puzzle to a website gives students a sense of anticipation for the activity they will be completing. Trick.ly urls take just seconds to create, they are a fast, easy way to direct your students to a website.

They even have an interface for the iPhone, which means that you literally have access to these bookmarks wherever you are.

Highlight and Comment on webpages, get a unique URL, share with friends. Collaborate over webpages. Create your own page and invite friends to comment on it . Well, that's their blurb, all in one neat handy title element. Input a URL, create a 'klip', write what you want to say, extract content. Create your own pages as well. Looks nice and easy to use, with good functionality. Would be good for education or guided tours


Possible Uses:


  • An awesome way to save time in the classroom when using multiple websites.
  • Instead of waiting for kids to type in several URL’s to get to the days activities, they type in one URL and share tabs does all the work.
  • Instead of spending 15 minutes waiting for students to type in web addresses, have that time to spend on the web activities.
  • Perfect in the computer lab setting or any time that you want students to visit multiple websites for a lesson.
  • Use for virtual field trips through cyber space without spending time creating a webquest.

  • Also makes sharing sites with colleauges a snap. As you are finding resources for a lesson, "pull them together" and send one link. Your colleagues will thank you!
