Fun Resources I Found ...

I had a few minutes the other day to look at the blogs I follow on my google reader, and look what I found (so many great ideas):
  • "Stage’d is a tool that helps students to tell digital stories in a new 3-d way. Students can create a stage full of characters and dialogue as if they are directing their own digital play. They can choose characters, costumes, animations, set design and provide characters with dialog. When the 3-d comic has been saved, it can be emailed or linked to with a unique url. Stage’d is perfect for use in any classroom, to save a comic requires no personal identifying information or even an email address. All students have to do is type in the name of the director (first name only or a pseudonym)." from iLearnTechnology Blog
  • Another one found on iLearnTechnology Blog : "Ditch That Word- John doesn’t offer a vocabulary boosting word-a-day, instead he aims at helping us ditch the words that have watered down our language and twisted it into something unrecognizable or cliche. Ditch that word makes me laugh out loud and groan in realization of how often I use those words in my own daily language. John is usually right on about words to ditch. Now I must figure out how to weed them out of my vocabulary :)"
  • Project Roundup: Poetry Portfolio with Carbonmade ... Great project idea and examples on this blog post by @MrR0g3rs
  • "I spend a lot of time visiting innovative classrooms in New York City. As I do, there is something that I've noticed in almost every room I've visited and that is that educators don't seem to know the no nos for teaching with a projector or interactive whiteboard (IWB). Perhaps it's easier to notice when you're sitting as an audience member or an observer which is not often the case for teachers. If you're an innovative educator teaching with a projector or IWB take it from me and your students, you might be engaging in a no no or two. Here are ten no nos to keep in mind as you teach with technology." from The Innovative Educator blog
