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 Twenty-Five Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2017 – So Far). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:
We Transfer is a super-easy tool for sending large files to someone. My Theory of Knowledge students love it – when they have to create videos for an assignment, they can use the website or smartphone apps to easily send them to me. They find it easier to use than uploading a video to Google Drive.
I’ve previously posted about the Buncee tool that lets you compose multi-media creations (it’s on The Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2013 list). I’ve learned from David Kapuler that they’ve developed a feature for teachers to create virtual classrooms at a cost of $100 per year. I’m adding it to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress.
Richard Byrne now has 500 videos on his YouTube Channel teaching how to use different web tools. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Learn Web 2.0 Basics, which I have to revise and update one of these days.
Richard Byrne has also posted Six Types of Classroom Video Projects – And 18 Video Creation Tools. I’m adding it to A Potpourri Of The Best & Most Useful Video Sites.
