Thanks to all those that shared their ideas, views, knowledge, and interest in using technology in the classroom. I hope you found some new ideas and are now more able to move forward with your own education in technology development. I was about to put together a list of my favorite Web 2.0 software and went to a fellow teachers site where I knew there was a posting I wanted to include. I discovered he had already posted his list which included many of my favorite so I decided to post a list of helpful sites of lists instead. If there is something specific that isn’t listed here that you heard me talk about and wanted to follow up on, please drop me a note. If you are looking for music related software that I either mentioned or demonstrated see the first list below or find a connection on my website at www.yismusic.net or here on this blog.
