Calendars and More

by Mr. Sheehy

Well, thanks to Cool Cat Teacher, who alterted me to Brian Benzinger‘s work compiling lists (see 1 and 2) and analysis of the great tools of Web 2.0. I went looking for a calendar, mostly to keep myself on track with vocabulary units that I accidentally put off too often, and before I knew it, I had embeded the calendar into my static web site (oh, no – can I talk about that on Web 2.o?) and am looking forward to seeing if students come to create their own calendars using Spongecell. It’s great stuff, and I’m thrilled to be tapped into conversations that make finding these tools so easy. The comment I hear the most when I bust out another technical tool or funny bit is, “where did you find this stuff?” I listen to the right conversations.
