A dozen of my favorite Web 2.0 toolsThe first 8 on the list I use all the time
- delicious – social bookmarking site. Allows me to access my bookmarked websites from any computer.
- Google Reader –RSS reader. This gathers all the things I want to read on one website. The mobile version works great on the i-Phone and i-Touch
- Free mobile learning. I bought a 16gb itouch which is now half-full
of education and technology podcasts. I am now learning new things all
the time on the go.
- Flickr – Search for Creative Commons Photos to use in presentations.
- Wikispaces – makes it easy to quickly create simple web pages (alternate PBWiki)
- VoiceThread Allow students and teachers to leave comments on presentation slides. I have see some great example of students presentations using this application.
- Google Docs – It is like having an online version of “Word, Excel and PowerPoint” that can be worked on collaboratively from any computer.
- Teacher Tube similar to YouTube but more closely regulated and less likely to be blocked. Unfortunately it is also much slower.
- Wikipedia a great starting point for information.
- Glogster Great way to may poster like web pages.
- Wallwisher- Collaboratively create and organize post-it-notes.
- Animoto Allows you to create a photo slideshow timed to music
