Please, what is the difference between educational web-based widget and educational desktop widget?
nice post, thx for sharing it]]>
I love the term “widget fever”. Very funny. Topoi is one of my favorites. Thank you for the post.]]>
I read about a site on John Chow’s blog today called http://www.43marks.com - its like Pageflakes and iGoogle but better cuz you can add all your bookmarks and the bookmarks can be websites not just gadgets and RSS feeds although you can upload your favorite RSS feeds too. Its free and totally customizable re-arranging categories and bookmarks in anyway you want. I really do like 43marks much better. It’s great for teachers! They give you a unique URL (43MARKS.com/username) where you can upload bookmarks that are of interest to the class your teaching Just give out the URL so the the whole class can see the bookmarks]]>
Thanks for the note, Karen,
I also enjoyed your comments on the use fo the blackboard.
I’ll be interested to hear what happens when teachers try to use them in their classrooms. I’m wondering if the tools are sufficiently customizable.]]>
