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). I also sometimes include tech tools that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:

Sketch Toy is a simple and useful online drawing tool. You can learn more about it at Richard Byrne’s blog. I’m adding it to The Best Art Websites For Learning English.

Tapestry is both an online tool and an app that has multiple storymaking tools. You can read more about it at TechCrunch.

I’ve previously posted about SAS Curriculum Pathways and Literably. SAS has tons of useful resources, and has just added the ability for teachers to create virtual classrooms and have students record reading assessments, which teachers then listen to and assess. Literably also has students record reading assessments, and they do the assessment (though they have recently reduced the number of free ones they will do). Personally, I don’t think anything beats a teacher doing it one-on-one with a student — both in terms of data and in terms of building relationships but, if used appropriately, I think an audio recording can be useful.
