[TIPS] - wikis and moodles in classrooms plus Google Earth visual guides

I can't help it! There's SO MUCH to tell you about. :-)
 
This first one is a link to a couple of audio recordings that you may find interesting. http://edtechlive.wikispaces.com/Recordings+List They're on the EdTech LIVE's wikispaces site and they are recordings of SKYPE (http://www.skype.com) conversations about using wikis and Moodle in the classroom. Actually, I'm not real impressed with the discussion on Moodle, but I did like the one on wikis, even though the audio is poor in a couple of spots. The teacher being interviewed uses wikispaces for her class wiki found here: http://westwood.wikispaces.com/ Remember, the CAIU offers wikis to districts, too, so if you're interested, tell your tech director.
 
Finally, Google Earth has a new version out, version 4. Very nice. Last year I sent you a link to some Visual Guides for version 3. Here is a link to the Visual Guides for version 4: http://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2006/08/google_earth_4_1.html

And don't forget, you del.icio.us users, that I'd LOVE for you to share your bookmarks with me by using for:jgates513 as one of your tags. (Don't understand that? Maybe you can search my blog for tips on del.icio.us.)    :-)
