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:

Pantrom seems like a very easy new tool for creating simple collaborative webpages. You can create up to ten for free. I’m adding it to The Best Ways For Students Or Teachers To Create A Website and to The Best Online Tools For Collaboration — NOT In Real Time.

Twiducate is on The Best Places Where Students Can Write Online list. It provides a private social network where teachers and students can communicate, with messages not visible unless users register and sign-in, and is free. They just announced they completely rebuilt the site and that the new version is in beta, but will be open to everyone in a month. It might be worth checking out then.

AndroVid looks like a decent video editor for…Android. I’m adding it to Not The “Best,” But A List… Of Online Video Editors.

I had thought that I had previously posted a “Best” list of tools presenters can use to get immediate audience feedback.  But I guess I was mistaken.  I’ll eventually get around to publishing it (and would love to hear reader suggestions). In the meantime, however, here are a few suggestions:

I’ve used Today’s Meet.

Here’s a list of ten others from Presentation Guru.

Here’s a blog post by Catlin Tucker about how she uses one of those tools (Mentimeter) for creating Word Clouds with her students.  I’m adding that post to The Best Resources For Learning About “Word Clouds”
