Bubble.us is a great freebie that allows its users to visually collaborate and/or organize projects. Below is a quick concept map that I created for past workshop I have taught. I am thinking of how I can move some of my sessions online. Each objective should list specific course materials (readings, resources and rubrics), high quality discussions that embed critical thinking skills, and assignments/projects as evidence of the user's newly developed podcasting skills. As you look at my map - what else should I add? Maybe quality feedback from the student to the instructor and visa versa?
You should be able to zoom in and out and move the map around to read it better!
I always knew that the SMART Phone was a fabulous tool and could be extremely useful in the classroom – but today really takes the cake! Feedbooks is a web2.0 resource that allows users to dowload free books! But what made this site extremely powerful was downloading the books to my mobipocket reader! Mobipocket is like the iTunes for books on mobile devices! You can use the mobipocket store to purchase, download, and syncronize books to your smart phone. However, when using both feedbooks and mobipocket, I can now synchronize literary works such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, White Fang, or Hamlet onto my Palm Treo for FREE! I also noted that mobipocket has free application called Mobipocket creator (home and pro) which enables users to create personal content like ebooks, photo albums, ect.. and then distribute via the SMART phone! I think our teachers and students could be very creative when using tools like this in the classroom! What do you think?
