Good collection of resources about using Diigo - check links on left to easy-to-read overviews, classroom ideas (lesson plans, training videos), and other resources. Start with Diigo 101 and Social Bookmarking and Diigo. From the About link, you see that this website (Google site) was created by a group of graduate students for a course, but they appear to have done a great job!
"Short guide to using backchannels for increasing participation in classroom discussions and for informally assessing your students' knowledge." Created by Richard Byrne. Gives detailed instructions on TodaysMeet, Wallwisher (now renamed to Padlet), and Socrative.
Great page that renames the ISTE/NETS-S categories into student-friendly language - check the Prezi and the Glogster glog that has links to resources young students can use to demonstrate mastery in each category.
Great page from Kathy Schrock with resources about Dr. Ruben Puentedura's SAMR model of technology integration - explains hope that teachers will move beyond Substitution to Augmentation to Modification to Redefinition - not just using technology as a substitute for the usual ways of doing things, but to redefining teaching and learning tasks in ways not previously possible. Scroll down on Kathy's page for her own thoughts about SAMR and for a list of resources from others including graphics and videos.
Links to rubrics from Teacher Planet organized by subject and topic. Also check out their link to Free Rubric Builders. Rubistar is there, but also a nice Rubric and Assessment Generator from Teacher Planet that lets you start from scratch to create your own.

"StoryJumper StoryJumper is a website that allows kids to build their own books. You can easily create cover pages, add text, upload drawings or photos to illustrate your story, and you can use the StoryJumper clipart gallery, too. When you re done, you can order your own professionally published hardback book!"
Great video to get you going with RSS feeds and Feedly in particular.
