Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: 50 Web 2.0 Sites for Schools

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: 50 Web 2.0 Sites for Schools | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Recently I've been experimenting w/ a bunch of curation sites that are beneficial to creating and sharing lists. While exploring these tools I've been "fine tuning" my Web 2.0 list for schools. I have created a list of 25 Web 2.0 sites for education over a year ago, but a lot has changed since then. More sites have been developed and more tools are available to students and educators then ever before.

The Joy of Books

"After organizing our bookshelf almost a year ago (http://youtu.be/zhRT-PM7vpA), my wife and I (Sean Ohlenkamp) decided to take it to the next level. We spent many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto (883 Queen Street West, (416) 366-8973)."

20+ Fun Free Apps that Promote Student Centered Learning & Literacy : Teacher Reboot Camp

20+ Fun Free Apps that Promote Student Centered Learning & Literacy : Teacher Reboot Camp | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

Lately, I have discovered many cool free apps that are incredible for creating digital stories, reading stories, and interacting with stories. These apps are incredibly engaging and meet the needs of our diverse learners. They allow learners to interact with the plot, characters, and even design of the story. They also support multiple learning styles because they are visual, have sound, and animation. Students can even begin to craft their own stories using their voices, drawings, images, videos, and so much more!
