Two great collections of educational Web 2.0 resources have recently become available:
- My friend Donna Baumbach's WebTools4U2 Use
- Top 100 Tools Spring 2008 Summary PDF from Jane's E-Learning Pick of the Day (thanks to Stephen Abrams for the heads up) is a very interesting compilation of popular online tools that compares their ranking from 2007-2008. Jane slices and dices the tools into categories as well and offers a Top 25 list for those of us with a touch of ADD.
I've added these to other illustrious resources that list and describe electronic learning tools on my Dipping One's Toes in the Stream of Social Networking wiki including:
- CSLA’s School Library Learning 2.0 <http://schoollibrarylearning2.blogspot.com>
- Joyce Valenza’s New Tools workshop wiki <http://joycevalenzaworkshop.wikispaces.com/>
- Library Media Specialist 2.0 - Annette Lamb and Larry Johnson <http://eduscapes.com/sessions/slms2/index.htm>
- Shambles Web 2.0 tools <http://www.shambles.net/web2/>
A list o' lists... Thanks to all the hard work by the individuals who've created and maintained these guides.
So, if you had but an hour and wanted to introduce just the top three most productive online tools for teachers, which three would they be? My nominations would be:
And yours? Just three. Just one hour. Just your normal classroom teacher.
