Some of use the fakebook tool at classtools.net but if you need to be offline, this is a template to make a Facebook page for a famous character. It is a .doc (Microsoft Word) file and you can download it and use it for your activity. These are great for looking at famous characters and students enjoy them.

Google docs is a word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation software of choice in the cloud for many that need to be collaborative. But perhaps the most useful thing to me is google forms which let students make the form and put it out on the web for others to answer. Then, examining results is as simple as pasting into a word cloud maker.

College prof Judy Arzt from Connecticut writes about the usefulness of live binders. I like her simple 2 paragraph explanation of what it is. I find her simple language easy to understand and think that we need more edtech college profs to create blogs like this to share with their students. Nice blog. She is @JudyArtz on Twitter.

Take notes out of evernote and put them into a flashcard maker. Although the best student notetaking software, I believe, is and continues to be One NOte - the incredible apps and evernote trunk are attracting students because of how they help them study.

The link up can happen and you can use studyblue to help you study on any type of device. I know this is memorization and "lower order" thinking but it is still a fact that it is part of learning today.

Just learned about a new tool www.spruz.com - I know NOTHING about it, only that it seems to have a watered-down NIng-like environment and cynthia invited me to join. I'll let you know after I play with it what I think.

This is a fascinating tutorial about Web 2.0 tools using "jog the web" it is interesting how this is set up and is a take on a webquest, but the use of frames is really cool. Nice thing to share with beginners or anyone wanting to learn more about these tools.

Information on the new Digg toolbar - just put digg.com/ in front of any URL or the diggbar bookmarklet mentioned in this post.

I really only report my super "hot" thoughts on digg but it is a cool tool that I've integrated w/ facebook.

Online flashcard box that also lets you embed video / pictures into it.

New website for keeping up with parents and kids - this has just been initially launched and doesn't have a lot of integration with other sites, but could be a great standalone for teachers who cannot access the tools that are out there and don't have an SIS. Try this.
