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”:
12 Things You Didn’t Know Facebook Could Do comes from The New York Times. I’m adding it to A Beginning List Of The Best Resources For Learning About Facebook.
Facebook and Twitter Guides For Educators comes from Smartboard Goodies. I’m adding it to the same Facebook list and to The Best Resources For Beginning To Learn What Twitter Is All About.
10 Productive Tasks You Should Be Doing On Google+ Right Now comes from ProBlogger. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning What Google+ Is All About.
Google+ Hangouts Are Now Free Conference Calls, Too is from Read Write Web. I’m adding it to the same Google+ list.
Apps 4 Edu comes from the Utah Education Network. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Beginning iPhone Users Like Me.
Education Pays is a good chart showing salary by educational attainment. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Showing Students Why They Should Continue Their Academic Career.
The Amazing History and the Strange Invention of the Bendy Straw is a pretty interesting short story of a simple invention.
Have Fun With History has a large collection of short video clips divided by historical era. Even better, they’re not hosted on YouTube, so are accessible to classes where YouTube is blocked. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Teaching & Learning About U.S. History.
A Generation Of Widening Inequality is a report from The California Budget Project. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Wealth & Income Inequality.
We Are the 99.9% is by Paul Krugman at The New York Times. I’m adding it to the same Inequality list.
