#21 - Youtube and Teachertubes

You do need to be careful about youtube sights but if you pick them out before hand they are fine. It is amazing what is out there. As we are looking at fables and fairytales it was great to find them on the internet. I added these ones to share with everyone. Good to see what people can do.

#20 - podcasts

Interesting that so many people wish to record themselves - some things are very interesting but not to listen it.

Would be good for older children to use as a way of finishing a unit and discussing things learnt during the unit or favourite movies/books.

#19 - Rollyo

Do not know if I would use this much. Good to search to see what other's have found but quite content to use my bookmarks. Good for school if want children to use a range of set safe sites for work or play.

#18 Wikis

Like the possibilities as long as ensure have time to check to make sure all is right before children access it. Good way to show and share learning about things eg space, numbers, animals or dinosaurs.
Work well with either upper or
lower primary school kids.
Lower will need more hands on at start.

#17 Delicious

For myself I can not see to much use as I can use my own bookmarks on my own computer but it could be a place to go to look for something if needed. For a classroom I can see its use as it would allow a whole class to bookmark things that everyone in the class can use in one place or whole school and not use indo computers at school to bookmark things. As no guarantee you will get same computer. Also as teacher can check want is being bookmarked by class.

This is great, one easy place to go and see whats new on your favourite sites in easy format.
Could see it working well with older children for themselves and even as a class for lower primary - could find sites, blogs etc about what topic being covered in class. Great to be able to look and discover sites using main idea also linked to your igoogle information. will continue to use it in the future.
