Beginning this journey into the ‘Blogging World’ web tools have become my new focus.
There are so many great tools out there, which ones to use, try, sign up for, use with students, use with staff, use in my school/professional blog. SO many questions!!
***One great resource which I visit frequently is ‘Cool Tools For Schools‘, a very comprehensive guide to all things Web 2.0.
Here is the link: http://cooltoolsforschools.wikispaces.com/ It has all the different types of Web Tools you could wish for… and more!!
It also has a great section ‘Resources for Teachers‘ with lots of ideas and resources for teachers!!
**Kathleen Morris on her ‘Integrating Technology In The Primary Curriculum‘ blog has an excellent section for teachers showcasing the different web tools she has used. A great resource!!!
**The Department of Education Victoria has a variety of resources for educators: ePotential –eLearning Showcases
The different Web Tools I have explored so far …..
1. Global2 : Free blogging portal for teachers and students in Australia
2. WordPress.com – Great for professional blogs
3. Animoto – creating student showcase videos with sound and special effects
4. Smilebox – great presentation tool to showcase photos with ‘scrapbooking’ like effects
What are great web tools that you use?
Cheers Raffaela 🙂
