A Short Post

I'm in St. Catharines, Ontario right now and I will be attending a meeting for the health and physical education part of my responsibilities. The Internet connection here is iffy tonight so I'll just post a few new items that I've harvested through the various blogs that I follow.

For those of you who use Animoto, there is a new educator account that will allow you and your students to make videos longer than 30 seconds. Check it out here.

There is a new wiki made by librarians in Florida that has links to various 2.0 tools called
Web Tools 4u 2Use. It puts a number of Read Write web tools in one convenient space and since it's a wiki anyone can add to it as new tools become available.

Here's a link to a wiki called 50 Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Digital Story. It shows how to combine traditional writing with other media. The list of 2.0 tools is extensive. I like it because it emphasizes the planning and preparation that must go into the work before the publishing (something that students have a hard time understanding sometimes).

Wes Fryer has a post on his Moving at the Speed of Creativity blog. It has ideas for summer professional learning. You can view his suggestions here. Most of this can be done from the comfort of your own home if you have a decent Internet connection (I don't have that great of an Internet plan but can still do most of the stuff I want except view video - takes forever to buffer).

I'm still having problems with the connection so that's all I'll post.
