I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.
Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
Changing Planet is a series of closed-captioned videos from NBC Learn. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Climate Change.
Slavery’s last stronghold is a slideshow from CNN and Slave master becomes an abolitionist is an accompanying article. I’m adding both to The Best Resources For Learning About Human Trafficking Today.
Uptime Fu will monitor your site and let you know when it’s down. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Keeping Your Own Website Or Blog “Healthy”.
Snaggy is yet another online photo-editing tool. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Online Photo-Editing & Photo Effects.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
“The Best…” series (which now number 691)
The most popular posts on this blog each month
My monthly choices for the best posts on this blog each month
Each month I do an “Interview Of The Month” with a leader in education
Periodically, I post “A Look Back” highlighting older posts that I think are particularly useful
Resources that share various “most popular” lists useful to teachers
