  • Free Puzzlemaker | Discovery Education

    The puzzlemaker from Discovery Education is free and incredibly useful. Our teachers at Westwood love it.

    The only trick is that if you have short words you need to add a few longer ones in so that it has enough words to make the puzzle.

  • Diffbot: Follow Anything

    I'm starting to get a lot of traffic from diffbot. It looks like a new sort of RSS reader but one that turns webpages of choice into a “newspaper” sort of look. This may be easy for others to read. I find this interesting.

I made a few photo puzzles for my kids and the family online with a company called printerstudio.com. I used them mainly in the beginning because their puzzlemaker was easy to use and they delivered worldwide and also because they had an offer going on at the time. I was impressed with the quality that they came in and the funny thing was that the box that it came in was personalized with my photo as well so I’ve been telling friends and colleagues at work about them too. The link to their puzzle page is at:

Interesting–on first look, Diffbot reminds me a bit of the papers you can create for Twitter. I’ll have to give it a whirl. Thanks for sharing the link.
