Great overview from Tara about how she uses wallwisher. I haven’t played with this new, cool tool but will. She says:
“One of my favorite new tools that I shared with the group was Wallwisher. It’s the whole ‘get a sticky note, write your thoughts and stick it to the chart paper’ activity but online. Brilliant! It’s free, and I can keep the information archived each time I build a new wall. “
Doug Johnson estimates the savings moving to Google apps, Great post for those considering this.
“These are rough and admittedly optimistic estimates, but I think you can see the general trend. Even if only 50% of my estimated nearly $2M in savings is realized, that averages out to close to $200,000 per year. (Out of a $1.2M budget.) I am not suggesting reducing tech budgets by this amount, but I can sure think of a lot more interesting things (like kids’ computers, a more robust wireless network, and more bandwidth) to spend tech dollars on.
Yes, I need to pay $7 a year per administrative, possibily teacher, e-mail account for archiving and retrieval. Not bad, though, considering.”
