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”:
A complete guide to web, Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus privacy and security! is a must-read article by Ronnie Burt from Edublogs. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning Online Safety. By the way, I’ve revised and updated that entire list.
Google+ Improves on Facebook is by David Pogue of The New York Times. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning What Google+ Is All About. I’m also adding Google+: The Complete Guide from Mashable to that list.
I’ve updated and revised one of my favorite “The Best…” lists, The Best Sites For Walking In Someone Else’s Shoes. I’ve also added “The World of Useless Stereotypes” from The New York Times to that list.
David Deubelbeiss at EFL Classroom 2.0 has collected the best Mr. Bean videos for English Language Learners. I’m adding his collection to The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL.
This is a pretty impressive two minute video showing a visual history of Space Walks. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Planets & Space:
Here’s a video that Julie Lake suggested. It’s a Honda commercial that I’m adding to The Best Resources For Learning About Rube Goldberg Machines:
Sound of Post-Soviet Protest: Claps and Beeps is an intriguing New York Times story that would have to be modified for ELL’s. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Protests In History.
Summer PD: New Teacher Boot Camp Week 1 – Using Wordle comes from Edutopia. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About “Word Clouds.”
