In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth , I’ve recently begin a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” (you might also be interested in The Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2013):
Common Core in Action: Screencasting in the Fourth Grade Math Classroom is a useful post from Edutopia that shares screencasting tools for the iPad:

I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Beginning iPad Users.
It isn’t exactly a fit for this post, but I’m still sharing about the new Google Maps Gallery here. Google has created this portal where lots of groups can share their Google Maps, and there are some pretty impressive resources. Here are three posts that share more about it:
Google Launches Maps Gallery To Make Public Data Maps More Discoverable is from TechCrunch.
Google Maps Gallery Wants To Be The Internet’s Digital Atlas is from ReadWrite.
Google Releases the YouTube of Google Maps is from Google Maps Mania.
