  1. Another good tool is

    http://ideagenerator.creativitygames.net

    It generates random words and images and allows you to manipulate them. You can conduct a variety of activities with this tool including Creativity building games (several listed on the site), pictionary, flash fiction, freestyle rapping and much more. Works well on a smartboard as well.

    The site has links to several examples of what others are using the tool for to get you started too.
