Very useful. I'm especially enjoying exploring beyond the usual suspects, with sites such as CogDogRoo and his storytelling wiki... it's great.

I'm curious- how did you gather the information for slide 9?

I've been traveling and busy - finally back home! Home sweet home.

I just wanted to list my fav. sites that I feel could be both student / teacher friendly. Yes, I've visited CogDogRoo and like you , thinking the storytelling emphasis is the best part. I have to revisit more often!

Slide 9? I don't follow, can you elaborate? What information?

Well no wonder you are confused, David, page 9 appears to have changed! The page 9 I was referring to (I wonder what page it really is on) is "Favorite web 2.0 tools from PLN" and is a google doc. It's got a column for comments and shared by... and I'm wondering how you collected it. Did you ask on twitter? Did people respond? Or something else?

I had originally written a long response to this post, but after awhile I thought, no one is going to be interested in this! and I shortened it.. a lot! Trying to make a long story short, when I first got on ning 2 1/2 years ago it was with the intention of exploring blogs, wikis, etc so I could present the info to other elementary teachers in a useful and approachable way. I got sidetracked, but I'm still interested in the handful or so of programs other educators feel are essential to the beginning.. what do you call it? Elementary teacher on the web? Hence my interest in your collection methods ;)

I see. It should still be there, linked somewhere. Also, see it in the Prezi which is meant to introduce this to teachers.

That doc was started a while back on twitter. I participated and added some tools and it was purely collaborative. Still being built and you will get a requested to see the updated version when new stuff appears. But a really nice way of educators showing / sharing / collaborating. Go HERE.

Click on the voicethread and you will see a very nice voicethread along the same lines but more reflective. I updated it/the presentation, because it wasn't working....

Excellent show David... I'm discovering new things at every turn on this website!
I can't wait to get back to England and maybe use some of the web apps with students.
Thanks again.
