Cool IT Stuff :
Some links to interesting or just plain cool tools that might come in handy.
Pixlr - an online graphic tool which will do some of the same jobs as Photoshop
Sumo Paint - a simple to use image editing tool. A Year 3 child told me about it as they use it at his school...
dafont - wide range of fonts and font types which you can try out - great for creating banner text for example
Big Huge Labs - for cool image stuff like mosaics and motivational posters
Online Planning Tools
Mind Mup - for making mind maps
Milanotes - for mood boards (signup required)
Gliffy - for making flow diagrams and the like
Audacity - the most excellent audio editing thing. You'll want the Lame encoder as well - the Audacity site will tell you how to get it.
Survey Monkey - is a cool way of creating your own online surveys. Limited slightly by what you can do with the free version (notably to 10 questions and only 100 responses per survey) but still really rather cool.
Here's a brief (under 5 seconds) Typewriter sound I edited down. Someone might want to download it... (right click and save as may work best here)
