I was cleaning out my emailbox and found some emails from Kathy Schrock I'd saved to explore this summer. Of course, I need to include Kathy Schrock in my Web 2.0 quest!!!
I subscribe to Kathy's "Site of the School Days" (SOS) newsletter to receive her weekly postings of innovative technology http://school.discoveryeducation.com/schrockguide/sos.html This page lists all of the sites she shared this year plus archives of previous years. What a treasure house!!
Since Kathy shared Diigo in March 2009 #31, she has created this great organized listing of various 2.0 tools using Diigo (June 2009 #41). http://www.diigo.com/list/kathyschrock/web20tools
This lady leaves me breathless!! I have very little time during the school year to explore many of her offerings and unfortunately many of her tools are beyond my understanding and use at this time! :/
Some of the tools I specifically want to explore are:
Site 6 bubbl.us http://bubbl.us/...an easy-to-use, online concept mapping tool; great to use when introducing a topic and using an interactive whiteboard or in computer lab when students are starting a project
Site 23 My Webspiration http://mywebspiration.com/...Inspiration, the useful mind-mapping tool, comes to the Web in an easy-to-use, collaborative version
Site 24 Slideshare http://www.slideshare.net/...an easy-to-use site that allows you to upload your presentations, share them with others, and also creates a text-based "transcript" of the text on all of the slides; in addition, there are thousands of presentations to search for, preview, download, and edit for use with your class
Thank you for sharing your research and expertise, Kathy!!
