(Usually, I just post a weekly version of this regular feature. However, sometimes I post an extra “Special Edition” when I have more good links than usual)
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 is a Special Edition of “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
‘Beam Us Up, Mr. Scott!’: Why Misquotations Catch On is from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Find Quotations On The Web.
Dropbox: A Superb Classroom Tool is from PLP. I’m adding it to
