Sharing my Compilation of Resources

For those of you who have been around technology a while, you might have used Diigo in the past or maybe you are using it now. I used it during my master's degree and then not much since then. But it is a great way to save and share out resources with your students or the community at large. I've been using it to save all of the resources I've been finding to make it easier to keep track of what I've found and what my thoughts are about the tool, website, or article. If you are looking for resources to use in your own classroom, check out my library on my profile and then start by looking via your subject matter or by the keyword that I've tagged it with.

As always, let me know what you think about this post!

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
