Holidays and a chance to catch up on blogs and Twitter. I found some inspirational posts from the Global Digital Citizen Foundation’s Blog. First of all, 100 best video sites for educators open HERE.

I suggest subscribing to Global Digital Citizen Foundation’s Blog for inspirational reading and creative ideas especially about using technology and lots more teaching topics.
Edutopia is also another blog to subscribe to. This post (below) by Beth Holland, on using ICT, suggests the best ways use digital tools and gives links to some free sites. Beth makes a great concluding comment.
The challenge is to seek out the empty and timeless tools, to find the apps that give students the most options for how they demonstrate their learning. In other words, we need to let the tools become the box. Beth Holland
One of Beth’s suggestions that I’ve just signed up to is ThingLink (iOS and Web) which enables links, images, videos, sound, and text as hotspots to be added on top of a picture. The free teacher subscription also has student groups. Can’t wait to give it a go…endless possibilities.
Some fabulous ways to use photographs.
Also from Global Digital Citizen Foundation’s Blog.
An annotated photo guide is Snapguide . One use could be for ESL students to create ‘how to guides’.
