I came across this toolbox for helping folks to facilitate online learning and online communities of practice. I really like the advice that they present, as well as their focus on curating and facilitating experiences. I also really like that they used a Google+ hangout to help develop the content for this organic course structure.
Are you interested in solving the problem of digital engagement? We are too. This website is designed for practitioners that want to develop online environments to build and sustain new audiences by using facilitation techniques that affect learning in these informal spaces. Below you’ll find different tools that we believe can help you successfully facilitate an online environment.
I wasn’t aware of this tool previously, but I am very interested in who is currently using it and how it fits into your classroom. I especially like their tagline…

I will write a follow up post to this, but I have recently started to actually write some scripts (or modify others’ scripts) for use in specific contexts in Denver Public Schools, and so I wanted to share one of the best introductions to Google Apps Script that I have seen, complete with a demo script to try out. While it is still highly technical, it does lay the ground work a bit more than most of the Google Developer pages.
While there may be significant push back on elements of the Common Core, the ability to demonstrate learning in unique and powerful ways probably isn’t one of them. It is in that vein that I would like to curate two Common Core-aligned Math portfolio sites for student use:
Please let me know if you have found any others.
I’ve been pretty impressed with the redeisgn of this tool for giving voice comments and feedback on Google Docs. I’m interested to hear who is using it in their classrooms and how it is going.
Fast. Giving feedback is faster with Kaizena than a word processor, and far faster than red pen. Every feature is designed to save you time, because fast feedback is high quality feedback.
I have found that you can do more and more with Google Sites recently. Here is someone who is really pushing the envelope with Jquery, CSS, and custom themes. Really great examples of how you don’t have to just settle for the default themes and work.
