Thank you for all the emails you sent and the comments you submitted to nominate your favorite blogs, Facebook pages and Twitter accounts. From the great amount of nominations we received (935 in total), we selected the Top 100 (Top 200 for language learning) for each category. These made it to the voting phase!
How to vote: First of all, go to the voting page of each category (links below). Then click on the name of the blog/Facebook page/Twitter account you want to vote for. For your convenience, all entries are listed alphabetically. You can vote once in each category. Remember that we will check the votes at the end of the voting phase for fraudulent votes and, if necessary, adjust the number of votes.
Remember when you first started using email? It was cool, wasn’t it? And fun? Now email has become a chore. For modern Americans, our inboxes are a bit like our homes–we spend a lot of time there so it might as well be as pleasant of an experience as possible. Our lives still run on email, of course, because it’s a default form of communication but also an avenue of authentication (how many sites still require you to enter your email address in order to create an account?). Email may slowly become less relevant (or more likely, morph and change shape) in our personal and business lives over the next decade or so, but it’s not going to disappear over night.
That’s why I’ve rounded up some of the best email tools and resources I could find. Even for such a mature space there is plenty of innovation taking place. Startups are coming on the scene looking for mature players to disrupt or adding lots of extra value to current solutions. Thanks to Gmail’s API there are now tons of excellent browser add ons and extensions to power-up and enhance Google’s popular email offering. Here in this list you will find email tools for both business and personal use. These products and services will not only help you get more done but will hopefully help to put the joy back in your email experience.
Teachers change the world by spreading knowledge and making an impact on their students from the classroom through to the rest of their lives.
Yeditepe University in Istanbul will be hosting the With or Without Technology conference in a couple of weeks’ time and I’m very pleased to have been invited to give a talk there.
I have been lucky enough to make working visits to Turkey more than a dozen times in the last ten years. Most of these visits have been to ELT conferences and I am constantly amazed at the friendliness, enthusiasm and openness to new ideas shown by Turkish teachers – well, the ones who come to conferences, anyway.
File-sharing for facebook groups is here. For some folks anyway.
According to Mashable, the file-sharing feature was rolled out to members starting yesterday, and will continue over the next several days.
“We started to roll out file sharing for all groups,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement reported by zdnet.com. “We previously launched it to Groups for Schools and now we’re making that feature more widely available. It’s only out to a small percentage right now, but we’ll be rolling it out to all groups soon.”

Last year my students did a webquest on English speaking countries. They showed their findings in presentations that they delivered to their peers in the classroom. I uploaded some of their presos to my Slideshare account (I still have more than a half to upload). One of their tasks was to create interactive quizzes in power point, which are absolutely meaningless on Slideshare. However, last week I came across QuizSlides, a great tool for ppts. QuizSlides enables you to keep interactive ppt multiple-choice quizzes interactive. QuizSlides is still in Beta and it's still free (The authors are planning to introduce premium features in the future, unfortunately.)
Numbers don't lie, but a bad chart decision makes it extremely difficult to understand what those numbers mean.

Wikipedia is a great educational resource for both teachers and students. Its articles appear almost always in the first four links of the search results. I know there are some issues with the use of this resource in education such as : plagiarism, trusted content and many more but still instead of excluding it all together we better learn and teach our students the best ways to use it.

I just read an article at Edudemic entitiled "20 Must-Have Educational Resources For All Teachers". In this article, the author writes about the devices and web-resources that he feels are must have's for education. In it, he challenges the readers to create their own list too. I agree with much of his list, but thought I'd make my own list a little differently.
Infographics is a way of presenting information using graphics. They tell a deeper and broader story than text alone, and usually take up less space as well.

In this week's New Yorker we learn of two competing schools of language scholars: The stodgy, old-school prescriptivists, who think there should be set rules for speaking and writing English, and the more liberal descriptivists, who aim to describe...
