I’m always looking for great tools that students can use, especially my IB Theory of Knowledge students, to save links to articles and websites when they’re doing research. In addition, it’s a bonus when I can find one that’s especially accessible to English Language Learners — those stand-out by have the ability to show images of sites and not just text links.
Start.me is a new one of these “home-page” creators that looks like it fits both those bills. It’s free, doesn’t require any kind of browser bookmarklet to use (in other words, you can just copy and paste url addresses). One of its features that I really like is that it seems to have the ability to let you embed any webpage just by pasting its url address.
I’m adding it to The Best Personal Home Page Creators.
