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.

Classtell - class websites for teachers - 0 views

  •  
    Fifteen year old programmer, Kasra Kyanzadeh, from Canada, emailed me to tell her about this website. This is another one to review. I hope that you'll share if you've used this site and what you think.

    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.

    I'm proud of Beth Kanter and her recent work at Gnomedex in showing people the power of social media to help important causes. It was all over twitter this weekend. Way to go Beth!

    Organizations that organize these tools also ignore potential donations.

PTA launches back to school webcasts for parents - 0 views

  •  
    National PTA (the parents organization for public school parents in the US) has launched a webcast to communicate with parents.

    Not sure where the podcast is, but it is probably linked here. It looks like a video. (It would be great to also rip the audio off and link as a podcast too, I think parents would find it useful.)

    One thing this does do is legitimize the webcast for parents. You can say "Look parents, PTA is webcasting, it must not be evil." For the use of this tool, I applaud PTA.

    I haven't listened to the webcast yet. Hope they turn it into to a podcast as my screentime is limited, but listen to things as I wash dishes and cook dinner (a nightly happening.)

  •  
    Tools are emerging to move content to student cell phones.
  •  
    Interested to see this software. Hope to get a copy and see how it works with my students.

    I have no doubt that moving content to mobile devices is going to be an incredibly useful thing to be able to do in the coming years. Do it now or do it later?

    How about 1:1 cell phone schools instead of laptops.
