    I am using this feature at NECC quite a bit - you can turn bookmarks into webslides. It is very useful and helpful!

Geo Education - 0 views

  •  
    Google for Educators launches Geo Education today! Cool. It includes information on Google EArth, Maps, Sky, and Sketcup and lesson plans from teachers. It also includes tips on getting started with these tools in your classroom.

    As you plan your summer PD, Geography teachers simply must get this on their list for fall!

Home - Microsoft Popfly - 0 views

  •  
    Using mashups is going to become an essential skill, I believe. Students should understand what they are.
  •  
    Microsoft Popfly lets you make mashups and build web pages without knowing code. I am to the point I don't teach the detailed web site creation coding I used to. I teach RSS, embedding, creating wikis, uploading media of all kinds, but I just don't know how important coding is any more at the basic level.

    I want to spend some time tinkering with this.

Setting up your PLN - Horizon Project 2008 - 0 views

  •  
    Today on horizon, my students set up their PLN (personal learning network) in their RSS reader -- we use Netvibes although some switched to Google reader.

    Here is how I will assess this:

    I am assessing the students on this by having them print the page out and turn it in -- I'm also checking over their shoulders in lieu of printing -- but I may not get to everyone. -- In this blog post, I've REQUIRED 6 things on the page -- each is worth 10 points -- with 2 of those points being for a properly edited title in Netvibes (so that they may see what is what!) -- and then I have them find at least four additional sources of information for another 10 points each.

    Knowing how to set up a PLN for a topic of study is a VITAL skill for the 21st century researcher. I like Netvibes because it is very simple -- one page interface.
