John Dalziel's insight:

Stoodle is a free, collaborative, real-time whiteboard app.
Stoodle.org started off as "Instunet" (the Interactive Student Network)
Practitioners can invite learners to join their online classroom by simply sharing the URL!
Users can also communicate on the whiteboard through a voice chat feature while they draw.
A big plus, it works on iPads and desktop browsers.
Ideal for collaborative learning where learners can learn from and teach fellow learners online.

Search Education – Google

Search Education – Google | technologies | Scoop.it

Being able to use Google (and/or other search engines) effectively is a skill that all learners need to develop as early as possible.

 

The lesson plans available on Google Search Education might not fit every learning situation, but at the very least they provide a great framework for teaching search strategies and evaluating information found on the web.

 

The lesson plans are arranged according to skill level in five categories. Those categories are...

- picking search terms,

- understanding results,

- narrowing results,

- searching for evidence, and

- evaluating credibility of sources.

Surfon

Surfon | technologies | Scoop.it
Many Learners and/or Practitioners may already be using tab-syncing solutions that are available for Chrome and Firefox, but only if they plan to move browser tabs from Chrome to Chrome or Firefox to Firefox. What if you want to move the tabs from Chrome to Firefox or vice-versa?

 

That’s where Surfon comes in. It’s a new tool that lets users save tabs in a browser and open them on another browser or on another machine. Surfon is the first of its kind to offers cross-browser compatibility.

 

Currently, Surfon is available for Chrome, Firefox and Safari for swift and seamless transfer of saved tabs, but it’s also possible to use Surfon – for one-way transfers – from the three aforementioned browsers to any other browser like Opera or Internet Explorer.

 

Tab lists are saved in a users account which can be reused any number of times on any number of machines and browsers.
