The last few posts on Accountability have been pretty serious. We’ll pick up the thread of Accountability at a later date. It’s time to lighten things up.
And now, for something completely different….
Update on “Toe the Line or Ride the Line?”
Many of you have linked from my post on Line Rider to try your hand at sledding. My 14 year old son and his friends have moved on to a site called Line Flyer. It allows you to ride the line on a motorcycle, a jeep, or a chair, as well as dozens of other “Line Rider-like” games. I still like the original.
Update on “Honoring the Chickadee”
Tom Woodward, who was featured in this post has moved to a new site called Bionic Teaching. He is an innovator and has some practical and creative ideas on his site. Check it out.
Non-Educational Web Site Worth Checking Out
If you want to see a beautiful web site that has definitely broken the mold check out Jeff Bridges home page. Yes, that’s Jeff Bridges the actor. I want to thank my artist friend Tom McKeveny for pointing me to this site.
Informative video from the Fischbowl blog is a thought provoking and creative look at the graduation of today’s kindergartners in 2020.
Update on “Pulling the Thread”
In my very first post, I listed a number of Web 2.0 applications. If I had to narrow it down to the application that has had the most value for me it would have to be Flock . This is a wonderful web browser. In addition to being a browser, it also has a built in RSS aggregator and a simple blogging tool that allows you to publish to your blog site. Another great feature that comes standard is the connection to your del.icio.us account and your Flickr account . Once you configure Flock, it automatically logs you into the two other accounts. You can share you bookmarks and your photos easily. In fact, Flock gives you a toolbar that has your photos in it. It’s easy to drag and drop photos or images onto the Flock tool bar or from the toolbar to your document.
Update on “Adding Students to Your Tech Plan” and “Ed Tech Planning 1: Content Plan”
I will be publishing several new posts on Ed Tech Planning after a presentation on Long Island next week. All the tools and templates will be on the edtechjourneys wiki.
Finally, for something “really” completely different try the Silly Walks Generator.
