I think I am experiencing a bit of technology burnout this week, especially because I've been introduced to so many new sites and programs for the first time. I spent the last two days trapped in my kitchen making cupcakes (viewable at https://sites.google.com/site/stressfreedesserts if you are interested) which was a nice vacation from classwork but I will admit it has been wonderful today to sit on the couch with my laptop and surf through Delicious, Edublogs, and Classroom 2.0. However, sometimes I get so excited about using new tools that I forget about all the other ones I'm using.
Currently, my absolute favorite online tools to help me as an educator and in the classroom are: Google (all of it, sites, groups, etc...), Wikispaces, Delicious, and Pinterest. Pinterest, you say? Why yes. Just search for any activity you are looking to do and amidst all the pictures of delicious food and cute baby rooms you will find a plethora of ideas for teaching lessons, managing the class, and organizing your classroom!
What sites do you frequent for education?
