Cool New Tools I Learned About this Week!

One of the best parts of my job as a teacher librarian is finding new tools and media for our teachers and students to use. This week I found a few new ones and here they are:

Google Sites is an incredible resource! It is very easy to use and has a lot to offer. I created one for our library and you can see it at I am going to use Google Sites to create an electronic portfolio for my graduate work at the University of Northern Iowa. which I created one for Our Library VOICE at for videos from WatchLearn, YouTube, TeacherTube, GoogleVideo and SchoolTube for kids to learn from(age level filter)

Storybird are short, visual stories that you can make with family and friends to share and (soon) print.

I subscribe to the Google Blog. This morning they had a great new resource listed called Freedom of Expression Google This is what the blog said: To commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, we're launching a YouTube channel — — to highlight and celebrate free expression around the world, and we want to hear from you. What a great new website....We like that we can hear others with a VOICE too using this resource!
