The ever-increasing abundance of free downloadables available for educators continues to astonish me.They are as numerous as the sites that catalogue them by the hundreds.
Recently I was made aware of yet another index – this time specifically for teachers. I must admit I was sceptical – just another list, I thought. But closer inspection got me thinking that, perhaps, this one was worth a second look.
My last GPS Website Gold Rush site for this month is Online Degree, a resource for online degree program information. It has just posted an article on 100 Essential Web 2.0 Tools For Teachers. There are goodies listed there I've never seen before.
Check them out. To name a few, I recommend taking a look at:
- Befuddlr (No. 93) – adds fun to pictures by making them into puzzles – easy-to-use, it offers choices of flickr picture groups to choose from
Fleck (No. 86) – puts sticky notes and annotations onto existing web pages and permits you to share them with others
Many Eyes (No. 94) – a take on the power of human visual intelligence to find patterns – this tool has the potential to create great discussion and debate in the classroom.
Could be a useful site to bookmark?
