Mrs. Eubanks's Website - 0 views

  •  
    Jennifer Eubank's Class Blog. She is in Taylor County (just spent some time there) and is really on fire! She used a google form this week.

    There are so many great ways to use these tools and NO ONE has the monopoly. (No, not me either!) It is so important to keep looking at what teachers are doing and share what we think works and doesn't. I expect great things out of Jennifer!

Discover More | Glubble® - 0 views

  •  
    Firefox extension that lets you filter what kids view in a firefox browser.
  •  
    Glubble is a firefox plug in to allow you to sort of monitor/ filter what they view online without having to pay for a filter. Yes, it is a filter, but for elementary aged children, I think it could be a good idea. Would love to hear a review from a reader.

    With so many easy options, we should all be able to find something that suits our needs (and/or our filter.) This one costs $20 CAD a year but you can have a 90 day free trial.

When Google Owns You | chrisbrogan.com - 0 views

  •  
    Oh, what a disturbing message. What if Google held our gmails for ransom? How much would you pay? Would it be right? This is the case with all of the things we have.

    Recent changes at Jott and Twitter should make us think! In fact, I couldn't even blog about it if it happened to me!

The Freecycle Network - 0 views

  •  
    Freecycle is for giving away items that you don't want to go into landfillls.
  •  
    This is not a "greenwashing." (Greenwashing is a new term coined for those who claim green and its not.)

    This is a grassroots effort of people who are giving things away for free -- keeping them out of landfills. What a great opportunity to share. My students and I are going to spend some time on here and we're going to register some items we have to freecycle. PLEASE PASS THIS ONE ALONG!

    What a great use of Web 2.

    Organizations that organize these tools also ignore potential donations.
