In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth sharing, I’ve recently begin a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” It’ll be a short compilation of new decent sites that are worth noting, but maybe not necessarily worth a separate post and generally — though not always — not worthy of being on a “The Best…” list (let me know if you think I’m wrong in my assessment, though):
‘Miss, what’s my password?’ 14 Web 2.0 tools without student logins is a nice post from Slome School. One site on the list that was new to me is an easy Word Cloud generator called Make A Word Cloud. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About “Word Clouds.”
Stipple is another tool that lets you annotate photos with links to other sites or text. I’ve posted about others in The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons (Thinglink being the most prominent). I had posted about it several months ago, but said then I wouldn’t add it to that list until it went public. I recently learned from Richard Byrne that it is now open, so I’m adding it to that list.
Quizlet is a flashcard and game-maker tool that’s already on a number of “Best” lists. Here’s a screencast from David Deubelbeiss from EFL Classroom 2.0 sharing new features it has, particularly being able to use audio.
