Tech Integration Group

Once a month I attend a tech integration group at Essdack. This time provides an opportunity for me to network and learn from other professionals in the field of technology integration.

I thought I'd take this opportunity to share some of the exciting tools and resources I learned about in the September and October meetings.

I found one of my new favorite bookmarking sites in the September. The site is called Linkable (www.linkable.com). 

  • Free
  • Use categories to organize your bookmarks
  • Import bookmarks from your browser
  • Access your bookmarks on any computer
  • Create new pages for better organization
  • Make pages public or private
  • Share categories with others through email or embedding code
  • Save to Linkable button for your browser (click this instead of bookmark page & you can send the link to your inbox or assign it to a category right away)

Another great resource was the book Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction:  Build Implements of Spitball Warfare by John Austin.  This could be a good tool for science.
Available on Amazon for $10.98

Finally, if you've ever wanted to learn a little about coding or JavaScript check out Codecademy (http://www.codecademy.com/).  This free site provides on few courses on both topics.  You can track your progress, keep tabs on a friend's progress and have fun learning.
