In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth blogging about, I post 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 2016 – So Far). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:
The Desmos Guide to Building Great (Digital) Math Activities is by Dan Meyer.
Ixil lets you create a virtual classroom for your students for $250. The activities all seem fairly basic, but it appears to be a fairly popular site among educators. I’m adding it to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress.
Wakelet is another addition to the very crowded resource curation market. It does seem fairly easy to use, and you can leave notes to the links you save. Because of those features, I’m adding it to The Best Places To Create (And Find) Internet Scavenger Hunts & Webquests because teachers and students can use it for that activity.
