  1. Make a Splash with SplashCast!

    Add Mike_Bryant’s channel to your page The above embed comes from SplashCast.  I’ve played around with this service for about a month now, unable to decide if it’s any better than some other tools out there.  On one hand, SplashCast allows you to throw a lot of different file types into a single presentation.  This […]

  2. Got Too Many Profiles? AtomKeep will help

     There’s plenty of sites that will allow you to update dozens of your social sites at once (Ping.fm,  hellotext.com,  upcoming.me) which is handy to broadcast your messages all over the social web.  However, what’s more difficult is maintaining each of those different sites and ensuring that your information is accurate!  How many profiles do you […]

  3. Edmodo: Twitter DESIGNED for the classroom

    Without a doubt, Twitter has taken the education community by storm.  However, there really aren’t all that many people who are using it in the classroom.  Let’s face it, it just isn’t designed to be used in a teacher/student environment. Edmodo is. Jeffrey O’Hara is the network administrator/webmaster for Community Unit School District 200 in Wheaton, Illinois.  I […]

  4. Animoto for Education – Free is good!

    We’ve partnered with Animoto in the past, culminating in them giving free access to every DEN teacher during Teacher Appreciation Week.  But now they’ve just gone over the top.  We’re pleased to announce a new service exclusively for teachers. Animoto for Education (http://education.animoto.com) gives teachers, grades K-12, unlimited access to the full range of Animoto’s […]

  5. Fix your Movies… with FixMyMovie.com

    Learned about this from Scott’s blog, and thought it might be pretty useful.  Particularly if you use your cell phone as a video recording device! Basically, FixMyMovie.com is an all in one movie cleaner upper.  Too dark?  It brightens it.  Too shaky?  It steadies it.  Seemed to do a decent job on their blog in […]

  6. Mogulus: Your own custom TV studio

    I am constantly amazed by how sophisticated some Web2.0 applications can be. Take for example, Mogulus. While there are several sites that allow you to broadcast live video streams, this really takes things a step further. And then another step further. And then yet another step further! At its most basic level, Mogulus allows you […]

  7. Adoptic: Let's do some sharing

    One of the biggest challenges new bloggers face is finding an audience. It’s easy to say, “If you write it, they will come” but the reality is it just isn’t that simple. Everybody wants an audience. If you’re going to be putting the time in, you want your work to be seen. One of my […]

  8. Surfing Timelines with Dipity

    Thanks to Mike for sharing this one with me today. I’ve played around with many a Timeline creator, but this one truly seems to stand out. Dipity.com can serve as a traditional timeliner, and it will work well, but it can also become your FriendFeed with benefits. The basic view is exactly what you’d expect. […]

  9. WAKEUP with WakeRUpper

    Via Cindy Lane As I’ve often said, sometimes the simplest sites are the best. WakerUpper.com only does one thing and it does it well. You put in your phone number, date, time and message, and it’ll call you with it at that time. That’s it! Tadaaaaahhhh! And yet, its simplicity is its brilliance. I do […]

  10. Speedracer? No, Typeracer!

    There’s one 20th Century technology skill that isn’t going away any time soon. And that’s, Typing. Yea, voice dictation is coming around, but we’re still pretty far from going keyboard-free. And while there are are hundreds of typing programs out there, there’s always room for one more. Particularly when it’s web based, cross platform, and […]

  11. Social Networking at TechForum Midwest

    Today I feel pretty darn privileged because I get to spend the day networking at TechForum Midwest, which just happens to be local for me No flight required! Highlight of the day has been the networking taking place. Sheryl Nussbaum Beach set the right tone with her opening keynote, encouraging the attendees to spend time […]

  13. Adobe Photoshop Express vs. Picnik

    After months of waiting, Adobe has finally entered into the online photo editing arena with Adobe Photoshop Express. I’ve been waiting rather impatiently for this one, since I Adobe has always been the image editing king. I obviously had rather high hopes for it. That being said, I’ve been pretty darn impressed with Picnik.com, and […]
