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 50 Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2017). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:

Blended Play is a new free site that provides several types of games that teachers can add questions to and then display them on a computer projector for all-class play. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Creating Online Learning Games.

One Chronicle lets many people upload images to the same slideshow, and they can be moderated. A tool like this can be useful when going on field trips. I’m adding it to The Best Web Applications That Lets Multiple People Upload Their Photos To One Place.

Stelum is a site that lets users write and read simple explanations of complex topics. I’m adding it to The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience”. Thanks to Richard Byrne for the tip.

Toonstar lets you bring cartoon characters to life thanks to facial recognition is a TechCrunch post about an intriguing new app. You might also be interested in The Best Ways For Students To Create Online Animations.
