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.
I usually bring these together weekly but, because my blacklog is so big right now, I decided to publish this second “special edition.”
Here are the resources in this special edition of “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
The Why and How of Using Facebook For Educators – No Need to be Friends At All! is an important post from Ronnie Burt at The Edublogger. I’m adding it to A Beginning List Of The Best Resources For Learning About Facebook.
World’s tallest buildings, monuments and other structures is a slideshow from CBS News. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About The World’s Tallest Buildings.
Here is a selection of video clips from the Nevada’s Test Sites historical film archive (via The Atlantic) that I’m adding to The Best Sites For Learning About Nuclear Weapons:
MailTemp gives you a temporary email address — it lasts 24 hours. I’m adding it to The Best Temporary Email Address Sites For Students (Or Anyone).
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
“The Best…” series (which are now 650 in number)
