NO Registration Necessary Web 2.0

Updated August 18, 2017

When working with K-8 students we must be concerned for students' privacy and anonymity. Most Web 2.0 sites require registration or allow teachers to set up class accounts. These extra steps to set up educational accounts takes time that's hard to locate in your busy day. Surely too a majority of us are tired of remembering are own usernames and passwords let alone keeping track of those of our students. Below are sites that do not require username, email or password. Sites were tested and whenever possible examples provided. Since 2010 the list has grown from 38 to 274. Over 400 have been reviewed and sadly over 100 are either no longer available or viable. Though the emphasis on this page is web browser tools, whenever there is an app available for other devices it has been so noted. It is to the students' advantage to know that they have similar choices to those tools they have available at school so the learning, collaborating, integrating, and publishing continues anytime, anywhere.
