the list

Posted by Debby on 17th April and posted in Cool Tech, Social Media, Teaching and Learning

I’ve been playing around with a lot of 2.0 toys lately, trying to wrap my brain around new and interesting ways I could use these in my classes to connect students to each other and to a larger network outside of the classroom. Every time something new comes along I try it out because I think the only way to really understand something is to become a user, not just a viewer. I finally decided to make a listing of the sites I’ve been playing on, mostly to put them all in one place so I can start thinking about how I want to use them. Some of the links are to less than active accounts, but at least they are all listed… well, at least I am starting to list them all. There are a few I can’t remember, but I am sure they will come to me eventually. Of course, I had to use one of the new tools to create the list. It’s at http://debbyk.jottit.com

    Thanks for the link.

  • I like you logic, Debby, regarding “becoming a user” in order to learn new applications. I am taking a on-line course right now that has me and my cohort doing just that. I am visiting your blog, while beginning my own, as well as a social bookmarking site, and a wiki. We are using these, as a group, to learn technology material together and, hopefully, become adept at each as well as discover ways to use them in the classroom.

    If you have not yet discovered Delicious or Diigo for bookmark making, check them out.

    Here is the address of a great video clip to explain them:
