Jan Schwartz's insight:

I haven't tried this yet, but it looks pretty good and easy to use.

Much like dropping pins on a Google Map, with Taggstar you can insert little stars into any image you wish. (See the small stars in the blue circles on the image above. This is just a sample image to show what the stars look like, they are not functional here. If you want to see a demo, click on the image and go to the Taggstar website)

 

When clicked, the stars lead visitors to any content you select -- another image, a video, a website, a document. This is a great way to make your images serve as portals to a world of information.

 

It's also a great alternative way to make a presentation...better than Prezi IMO.

I installed the code on several of my blogs.  Now when I'm logged in and editing my blog, I can add hyperlinked hotspots to any image.  I could do this with an HTML editor, but Taggstar makes it a much easier process.  


Any diagram or image you post on a blog could become quite an interactive roadmap.  Fun!

I love to browse lists like these.  I'm always looking for a site I've never heard about.  Half a dozen unkowns on this list~!  Fun! ~Den

Don't forget this is the third incarnation of this list -- there are 50 more websites included in the AASL "Top 25" lists for 2009 and 2010. Now if I could only get my teachers to use some of them...
