During the last six or so years I have created a number of 'how-to' documents and presentations for a variety of web based and related technologies. They are available from the various workshop web pages however I thought it might prove helpful to link to all the documents from a single page.

Expo Writing Resource Center

| | Comments (0)
Scholastic and Expo have partnered together to create the Expo Writing Resource Center. The Expo Writing Resource Center offers lesson plans for teaching writing. The lesson plans are organized into four groups based on grade level. Each lesson plan includes PDFs of printables to distribute to your students. While the lesson plans are free, Expo is obviously trying to sell more markers because they give directions for color coding various aspects of the lesson plans.Expo Writing Resource Center

Google announced a new image search option called Image Swirl. Image Swirl is similar to Wonder Wheel which I've previously written about here and here. To use Image Swirl, just enter your search term as you would in the regular image search service. The results of your search will be displayed in a grid similar to that with which you're probably familiar. Click any image in the grid a web of more, related, images will appear. Click an image in the web and another web of images will appear.
