In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth blogging about, I post a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” (you might also be interested in The Fifty Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2016).

I’m not adding either one to The Best Websites For Creating Online Learning Games – they’re just a little too complicated for my taste.

15 Second Book Talks Take 1 is from Colby Sharp. It’s about using Instagram’s new Stories tool for creating book talks. I’ve written a lot about how I use Instagram’s video feature for book talks and other projects (see The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram). I hadn’t paid much attention to the Stories feature because I knew it would automatically delete after twenty-four hours. But, after further investigation, I learned that it’s easy to save the videos as permanent.
