(NOTE: I usually publish this kind of post once-a-week. However, even more links than usual have accumulated during our annual field trip where we take one hundred students to San Francisco, and then during my subsequent recovery time. So, here’s a collection to get them “out of the way.”)
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”:
NASA has created an amazing slideshow of the International Space Station compiling photos taking from a recent Soyuz flight. I’m adding it to The Best Images Taken In Space.
The world’s tallest skyscrapers and structures is a slideshow from The Telegraph. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About The World’s Tallest Buildings.
Beating The Heat On The East Coast is a Wall Street Journal Slideshow. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The Summer.
Jot Form looks like a pretty intriguing way to create forms, surveys and polls on the web. It’s a little more complicated than other tools I have on The Best Sites For Creating Online Polls & Surveys list, so I’m not sure if I should add it there. What do you think?
