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 2018 – So Far). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:

BrandQuiz is a new tool that lets you create surveys or…quizzes. It seems decent enough, and has a free option, but I don’t think I’m ready to add it to either The Best Sites For Creating Online Polls & Surveys or The Best Ways To Create Online Tests.

Bot Star lets you create Chatbots.  I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Creating Chatbots.

iTeach: A Guide To The Most Useful Apps For The Classroom is from NPR.

Move Mirror: You move and 80,000 images move with you is new from Google. You take a short video of you moving, and then it will match it with images of many others making the same movement. Not sure that it has much educational value, but perhaps having ELLs use it and then describe what they are doing?

The Library of Congress has quite a few images that are in the public domain.  You can see them all at their Free to Use and Reuse Sets. I’m adding it to The Best Online Sources For Images.

I’m adding this tweet to the same list:

I’m also adding this Richard Byrne post to the same list: An Easy Way to Find Images for Google Slides Presentations.

Here’s another useful post from Richard: How to Protect Student Privacy With Blurring Effects in Videos. I’m adding it to The Best Teacher Resources For Online Student Safety & Legal Issues and to A Potpourri Of The Best & Most Useful Video Sites.
