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”:
Leveraging Your PLN With Hashtags comes from the Powerful Learning Practice blog. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning To Learn What Twitter Is All About.
Bloom’s taxonomy and English language learners is by Judie Haynes. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom.
