In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth blogging about, 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 2015 – So Far). I also sometimes include tech tools that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:
7 Good Options for Building Digital Portfolios – A PDF Handout is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Developing Student Portfolios.
FreeConferenceCall.com comes highly recommended by Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration.
Sketchlot lets teachers create virtual classrooms for their students, who can then create drawings or other products on an online whiteboard that can be monitored by their teachers. I’m adding it to The Best Art Websites For Learning English and to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress. Thanks to – who else? – Richard Byrne for the tip.
Showbox, a new online video-editing platform isn’t open to the public yet, but it sounds like it could be a game-changer.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Online Sources For Images:
