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 Twenty-Five Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2017 – So Far). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:
Queeky is a free online drawing tool. I particularly like their MultiDraw feature, which lets you create private virtual rooms where users can collaborate in drawing. I’m adding it to The Best Art Websites For Learning English and to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration.
Taleship is a new simple site designed to promote “slow” collaborative writing. You write something, and then you invite a new person to continue the story. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Collaborative Storytelling.
I’ve previously posted about Amazon’s new site for teachers (Amazon Makes Its Teacher Resource-Sharing Site Public Today). It’s called Amazon Inspire. This week, they announced that educators can now post their own materials and resources on the site. It will be interesting to see how it all goes.
Instagram Stories are coming to the web is a post from TechCrunch covering an announcement made by Instagram this week that should create another tool educators and students can use. You can find more information about its potential classroom use at The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram.
