Handig app om dingen die je op het web tegenkomt van aantekeningen te voorzien en te bewaren.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 7:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

Ways by which to enrich PBS outputs

Sophia Vitilio's curator insight, February 17, 2014 12:26 AM

 This article gives some free websites that students can use for project based learning assignments.  They all make projects easier for students to put together and to get to from different computers.  In a way this makes me think of my personal learning network with the free ways to share ideas through the internet.  These resources all seem very useful for a project based learning classroom and I cannot wait to see how they will grow and expand by the time I have my own classroom.
