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”:
Patricia Ryan: Don’t insist on English! is a new TED Talk.
Here are two new additions to The Best Sites To Learn About Pandas:
Panda’s Debut At Tokyo Zoo is a Wall Street Journal slideshow.
Scientists Don Panda Costumes is a TIME Magazine slideshow.
Free Tools Challenge #10: Word clouds with Wordle comes from Edublogs. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About “Word Clouds.”
Page Speed Online is from Google and will measure how fast your webpages are loading, in addition to offering suggestions on how to improve its performance. You can read more about it at TechCrunch. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Keeping Your Own Website Or Blog “Healthy.”
Here are three new additions to The Best Digital Storytelling Resources:
On the Go- Mobile Storytelling is from Langwitches.
Storyboarding: Pre-Writing Activity is also from Langwitches.
The Narrative in the Neurons is by Wray Herbert.
