In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth sharing, I’ve recently begin a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” It’ll be a short compilation of new decent sites that are worth noting, but maybe not necessarily worth a separate post and generally — though not always — not worthy of being on a “The Best…” list (let me know if you think I’m wrong in my assessment, though):
9 Word Cloud Generators That Aren’t Wordle is from Edudemic. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About “Word Clouds.”
I still use Flickr, especially for classroom-related photos, and TechCrunch recently shared about some useful updates: Yahoo Sharpens Its Flickr iOS App With Enhanced Filters, More Camera Tools; Makes Pro Tools Free.
Three Tools for Improving Flipped Video Lessons is a new post from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to both The Best Posts On The “Flipped Classroom” Idea and to A Potpourri Of The Best & Most Useful Video Sites.
TechCrunch writes about what sounds like a pretty easy tool for creating animations on an iPad: iPad Animation App Loop Captures The Fun Of Making Doodled Flipbooks. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning iPad Users.
Diigo recently got a “facelift.” I only use the site to back-up the many sites I bookmark on Delicious (see my somewhat outdated The Web 2.0/Social Media Tools I Use Everyday & How I Use Them), but I know that many other teachers use the tool for a number of other tasks.
