The increase of teachers using blogs and wikis, and students networking and utilizing online tools, the demand for easier and more efficient ways of learning is on the rise. So what's new?
I came across a great list of fun and helpful tools from Solution Watch by Brian Benzinger (http://www.solutionwatch.com/512/back-to-school-with-the-class-of-w...) that I think you will find useful as you head back to school or just back to work after a great summer –
For Teachers, Clubs, and Management
To Do's and Note Taking
Learning and Research
This is just the start of the book as they say; stayed tuned over the next few weeks for more WEB2.0 tools that you can use for school and work.
Part 2 - Web-based alternatives to desktop office applications
Part 3 - Blogging, photo sharing, podcasting, wikis, video sharing, and more
Part 4 – Bringing it all together with the iPad
With my freshly sharpened pencil raised high I am wishing you a Happy New School Year!
"There is no recipe for raising children to be successful adults, but parental warmth and affection make more of a difference than any other factor… The main finding… was that 'subjects who had warm mothers or warm fathers were more likely to be rated as higher in social accomplishments 36 years later.' - Radcliffe Study, Quoted in the Boston Globe (4/8/91)
“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.” - Mahatma Gandhi
