The Graphite site is full of useful information including reviews of applications, app flows, and teacher blogs. Here is a link to the top picks for the best apps, games, websites, and digital curricula rated for learning. I would encourage you to check out the site and spend some time reading the teacher blogs and boards.

Below are a few links to some of the teacher blogs and app flows that I found interesting:

Issue: I tried to subscribe to the Graphite Blog (teacher blogs), but I couldn’t for some reason. It currently links you to the code feed. I also tried to type in the URL to add a blog in WordPress, but it said that the site didn’t have an Atom or RSS feed associated with it. So, for now I’ll just be clicking on the links to follow…or checking my email. If you have any advice on how I can add the teacher blogs to my page, please let me know.

Forget the Blog, Create a Glog

img-1For one of our class projects, we could create a Glog by going to glogster.com. A Glog is similar to a blog and as easy to use. When you are done, you have an active URL domain that you can use on your Facebook page, website, etc.

The website states that “Glogster EDU is the leading global education platform for the creative expression of knowledge and skills in the classroom and beyond.  We empower educators and students with the technology to create GLOGS – online multimedia posters – with text, photos, videos, graphics, sounds, drawings, data attachments and more.”
