Other Web 2.0 Tools

 

NOTE: There are hundreds of new Web 2.0 tools coming out every day.  Some make it some don't.  Below are a few our favorites.

 

  • VoiceThread - One of the best new-ish resources out there (IMHO).  Check out the VoiceThread wiki I put together, and please share your ideas with the rest of us!
  • Ustream - Broadcast live for free!
  • PBWiki - This is my favorite wiki site due to the simplistic nature of it.  However, others out there, such as wikispaces and WetPaint are probably a little more feature-rich.
  •  Yugma -  This is an easy, secure and reliable collaboration tool for Windows, Mac and Linux.  Yugma enables any group to spontaneously collaborate on projects in real-time.  Collaborate anytime with offsite team members, give virtual presentations, host webinars, streamline workflow, provide remote tech support, and much more.
  • WebHuddle - Meetings can be conducted either in conjunction with an existing teleconferencing service, or utilizing WebHuddle’s optional voice over IP. WebHuddle also offers recording capabilities -- presentations can easily be recorded for playback over any web browser.
  • Flash Meeting - A simple meeting tool that works in a web browser and creates instant web replays.
  • Gaggle - Gaggle used to be strictly a safe, filtered e-mail tool for students.  Now they have added message boards, blogs, chat rooms, storage lockers, etc. to their suite of safe, filtered tools for students.  I highly recommend this for all educators (K-16+).
  • Weebly - I use Weebly with my students who are creating websites.  It is super easy to use, and their final product always looks great.
  • Del.icio.us - Del.icio.us (pronounced as "delicious") is a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks.  Check out Beth's del.icio.us site and Laurie's del.icio.us site as examples.
  • Twitter - is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send "updates" (or "tweets"; text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) to the Twitter website, via short message service, instant messaging, or a third-party application such as Twitterrific.  I would NOT use this with students, but it's a great tool for collaborating with other educators.  Take a look at Beth's Twitter site and Laurie's Twitter site.
  • Google Docs - An online productivity suite (similar to Microsoft Office) that allows multiple users to collaborate on the same documents from anywhere in the world.  This works great with group projects...no more group projects where one person does the work for the whole group!
