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”:
Our tips for getting blogs ready for the end of the school year is by Sue Waters. I’m adding it to The Best Sources For Advice On Student Blogging. I’m also adding 14 Steps to Meaningful Student Blogging by Pernille Ripp to the same “The Best…” list.
Iceland volcano: Experts say eruption winding down is an Associated Press interactive. I’m adding it to The Best Sites About The Latest Volcano In Iceland To Erupt.
The Global Peace Index is a pretty interesting interactive map from The Guardian. It maps world conflicts over a period of time.
Here’s a collection of “maps in the form of plants, animals and humans” created in the sixteen and seventeenth century. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Historic Maps.
INFOGRAPHIC: Amazing Twitter Facts And Figures is pretty interesting. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning To Learn What Twitter Is All About.
