Social mention lets you track what people are saying about you, your school or more. It looks like it works a lot like Google alerts. Another great way for administrators to monitor “the buzz” about their school, particularly if it has a hashtag.
A lesson plan search engine for teacher lesson plans.
Website that sends you text messages to encourage literacy in their children. Great for parents or teaches. Interesting idea.
The showme app on the ipad has some fascinating potential. I am going to play with this over the summer. Would love to hear from anyone who is already using it.
Not sure how interactive ebooks will help students learn (dual encoding works) but here are some more interactive story books.
Our project coordinator, Lisa Durff, makes lists of the Flat Classroom teacher “alumni” so we can keep in touch. This is a great group of incredible global collaborative teachers who are doing it.
Suzie Nestico's webslides (made automatically from a Diigo list) for the diigo session at ISTE.
Lovely wiki about diigos. Lots of things from Michell Krill who pitched in to help in our diigo workshop.
Debby Atwater has some great links in her public library. Another example to review.
here is my public library of diigo bookmarks.
Neil is pulling over his bookmarks for his fourth and fifth grade classes. Here are some sample libraries from diigo users.
Not everyone does what they say with money for charity. Lady GaGa is under scrutiny and criticism for not donating money to japanese quake survivors from the sale of her wristbands.
Some major computer science programs at top universities are seeing a slight uptick in the number of women going into the programs. Citing statistics from Harvard (up from 13% to 25%) and MIT (a 28% jump in 3 years), and Carnegie Mellon (from 1/5 in 2007 to 1/4 last year.)
Most think it is the economy although some attribute programs to get more women interested in the programs.
Interesting website for those who are graduating or getting married. This lets you create one master registry out of everything on the web. Interesting.
For nonprofits, you can create a list of the things that you need and people can put money towards those items. So, this could be used for schools too. Teachers could make a wishlist. Cool idea.
Start mixing music. Got this information from an iste tweet (without the link.)
