    For Tuesday 3-25-086-3-08
    1. Lulu - Self Publishing: This is a great service. Lulu will take any PDF file, turn it in a book and sell it on their Website. You can sell it at cost, or increase the price to make a profit. I think this has great possibility for kids to publish their work at the end of a course and/or as a fund raiser. People can buy the book right off of their Website, so there is no initial startup cost. Check it out here: http://www.lulu.com/
    2. Web 2.0 Award Winning Websites for 2008: Check out this list of great Websites. It is organized by category. Categories include Bookmarking, Collaborative Writing, Music and Health. There is a first, second, third place and honorable mention in each category. You should recognize many of the sites from my previous "Two For Tuesdays." Here is the link: http://www.seomoz.org/web2.0/short
    Two For Tuesday 5-20-08
    1. Back Up Your Files! All computers will be re-imaged over the summer. You will need to back up all of your files by Friday, June 20th. Any files not backed up will be lost. I have attached directions for how to back up to the school server and/or to a flash drive. You can also find these directions on the WHS Website: http://www.wellesley.mec.edu/whs/pages/WHS%20Library/How%20To/howtoTEACHER.htm
    2. Twenty First Century Technology Tools: Tutorials for Teachers: If you are looking for something to do this summer, I have put together a Wiki which includes directions for how to use many of the tools I have told you about this year. I even put all of the directions together in a book (using www.lulu.com) which you can download for free. You can find my tutorials here: http://21ctools.wikispaces.com/

    1. Google Earth: Google Earth lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings and even explore galaxies in the Sky. You can explore rich geographical content, save your toured places and share with others.This is a much richer experience than Google Maps. Google Earth is a free download: http://earth.google.com/
    2. Google Sky (new): To help you explore the far reaches of our universe, Google has teamed up with astronomers at some of the largest observatories in the world to bring you a new view of the sky. Using Google Maps this tool provides an exciting way to browse and explore the universe. You can find the positions of the planets and constellations on the sky and even watching the birth of distant galaxies as seen by the Hubble Space Telescope. You do not have to download anything to use Google Sky. Check it out here: http://www.google.com/sky/

    Two For Tuesday 3-18-08
    1. Drop.io: Drop.io is like an electronic in box. Set up a drop and your students can hand in their papers and projects electronically. It is also a great way to share documents and media with a group. Drop.io describes itself this way: "Drop.io enables you to create simple private exchange points called "drops." The service has no email signup and no "accounts." Each drop is private, and only as accessible as you choose to deliberately make it. Create multiple drops, add any type of media, and share or subscribe as you want. To make a drop just click the big red button that says 'drop it'" I've embedded a drop.io box on the right column of my blog. Try it out here: http://drop.io/
    2. Blabberize: Animate your pictures to speak for themselves. Check out my blog to see this in action: http://edtechpower.blogspot.com/2008/03/two-for-tuesday-3-18-2008.html

    Two For Tuesday 3-11-08
    1. Looking for some blogs to read? Alltop.com has collected the top blog sites and stories on the Web and grouped them into categories. Their interface lets you mouse over and read a blog post right from their page. They suggest you "think of an Alltop site as a “dashboard,” “table of contents,” or even a “digital magazine rack” of the Internet." They include a wide range of categories including education, sports, politics, fashion and celebrities. This is a great resource for good blogs - crazily, my blog is included on their education page!
