Six years ago, in another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I began this occasional “Ed Tech Digest” post where I share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech, including some Web 2.0 apps.

Here are this week’s choices:
Spark learning with a Fliphunt is a very good post about using FlipGrid for a scavenger hunt.
FlowCV is another online resume builder. I’m adding it to The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes.
Taskade lets you do a video chat and share documents and write text. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration.
Kallu is a new free conference call site. FreeConferenceCall.com has clearly been the best site for that role, and I’m not sure how Kallu is better or worse….I’m adding it to the same list.
Book Trailer Project Guide is from English Teaching 101. I have a lot of other book trailer-related posts at Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them, so I’m adding it there.
Silicon Valley Came to Kansas Schools. That Started a Rebellion. is from The NY Times. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Understanding “Personalized Learning” Even more interesting, The NY Times Learning Network received over two-hundred comments from students reacting to the article.
Voiceflow, which allows anyone to make voice apps without coding, raises $3.5 million is from TechCrunch.
The New York Times Learning Network is holding its Second Annual Student Podcast Contest. You might be interested in The Best Resources For Teacher & Student Podcasting.
Maps of Mind is a new mindmapping tool. I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Mindmapping, Flow Chart Tools, & Graphic Organizers.
