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:
Screens in the Classroom: Tool or Temptation? is from The NY Times.
The Image Annotator is a new tool from Class Tools that allows you to…annotate images. Class Tools has lots of neat…tools and is on The “All-Time” Best 2.0 Tools For Beginning English Language Learners list. You can learn more about the Image Annotator at Richard Byrne’s blog.
Caption Cat posts photos where you can write captions. The site is probably inappropriate to have students use, but the images could be useful. Thanks to ANA CRISTINA for the tip. I’m adding it to the same list.
I’ve previously posted a few times about Biteable, and put it on a couple of “Best” lists for making videos and infographics. They’ve just unveiled a brand new version.
Know Flow is a new mind-mapping tool. I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Mindmapping, Flow Chart Tools, & Graphic Organizers.
Biolinky lets you create lists of links that you can share. Ordinarily, I’d put a tool like this on The Best Places To Create (And Find) Internet Scavenger Hunts & Webquests list because that’s where I put other similar ones, but I haven’t really gotten a chance to check it out. So, until I do, I’m not ready to add it there.
You can create a Chat Bot at BotMake. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Creating Chatbots.
Writing Pal looks like it might have potential to assist students develop writing skills, though I found the registration process a bit too cumbersome and gave up. Let me know what you think if you try it out. I’m tentatively adding it to The Best Online Tools That Can Help Students Write An Essay.
What The Internet Can Learn From The Printing Press is an interesting Atlantic article.
