You didn’t highlight one of my favorite shortcuts–Shift+F3 to change the case. Ever accidentally leave the Caps Lock on? This is what fixes it without having to retype your text. Mostly I use it now for removing capitals from article titles for APA citations, where all but the first word should be lower case.

By the way, the ability for people to comment on your links is one advantage of having them posted in your blog rather than splicing the feeds together. I get a surprising number of comments on bookmark posts. Have you had the same experience?

I liked the Tech Integration Matrix. I think it was a bit too light in terms of only providing one example of an integration activity for each possibility but I can definitely see its use. Does anyone have another resource like it that lists more possibilities for each area? Also, I noticed that the samples were disproportionately skewed towards the earlier grade levels. I can see this site being very useful once there are samples for multiple grade levels and multiple disciplines under each of these headings. Otherwise, it is a very nice start.
