HOOVER your sites

Sitehoover is the top 2010 tool (Web 2.0) from Larry Ferlazzo’s The Best Lists on Technology in 2010.

It is great tool for sharing websites.  A possible use for students would be  compiling their recommended researched sites with annotations highlighting  the reasons for the selection of each specific site (being critical evaluators).

This is a link to my library and ICT resources SITE HOOVER page (blog, wikis, twitter) that I created to evaluate just how simple it is to use.

Easy! Highly recommend it.

Graeme Base and the Golden Snail

The Legend of the Golden Snail is another beautifully whimsical book by Graeme Base. To me it has a feel of an earlier book written by him “The Sign of the Seahorse” but it still quite different and worth a read.

This will be a resource that will hopefully be of value to teachers and will be contantly added to. Please let me know if you have resources that you would like to add.
