Technology integration matrix from Florida. This amazing resource was picked up from Lucy Gray. Really amazing.
Webby awards voting is open now. Very cool. Voting closes May 1st and some cool things are there. How about having students vote (but check the sites in a category first!)
Remember the milk — an add in for gmail and google calendar that has come highly recommended from Sharon Peters.
Bud the Teacher and Stephanie Sandifer are planning an I read blocked blogs day. This is going to be an event for educators advocating access. It would also be a great time to talk about ways to monitor when you provide access.
This also happens to be the first aspect of ad4dcss and we’ve listed it on the wiki. They have shirts that people can get and buttons for your blog.
Phenomenal page about integrating ICT into the classroom witha wide variety of rubrics based upon Bloom’s taxonomy. You’ll see blog journaling, wiki editing, threaded discussion, bookmarking rubrics, search rubrics, podcasting rubrics, audio conferencing, data analysis, and collaborative rubrics. I haven’t been through all of these but would love it if we could go through them and work on them.
They are in PDF format, but it would be great to share and edit them collaboratively. Very nice website.
Cool page with a lot of neat hotlinks in Microsoft Word. I’ve highlighted some that I really like.
This is an excellent article that has been reposted. It includes a lot of the information that outlines WHAT web 2.0 is. This includes videos and many important hyperlinks. Excellent article for newcomers to web 2.0 to pick up on.
Website that lets you make logos. I could picture students using this to design logos for their projects. I often have my team design a logo like a crest to represent things about the team. It forces them to think deeply about what they want their team to do.
