Twitter Tuesdays

I have been on twitter for several years now and have found it a great way to build my own Personal Learning Network (commonly refered to as a PLN).   I have found several people to follow that are also interested in educational technology.  Those connections lead me to new resources to share with you.   Each Tuesday this year I want to share some of those resources with you along with the original tweet  and who sent the tweet.  I have tried to group these resources into categories so that you can quickly go through and find ones that may be helpful to you.

Here are a collections of resources that caught my attention this past week on Twitter:

General Sites:

ConceptBoard – @addthis  Conceptboard – Realtime Teamwork & Collaboration Software http://t.co/YZ6KCl4

    • Create interactive whiteboards that can be shared

Moodle –  @moodlenews: 47 Interesting Ways to Use #Moodle in the Classroom (started by @TomBarrett)  http://www.moodlenews.com/2011/42-interesting-ways-to-use-moodle-in-the-classroom-started-by-tombarrett/

    •  A google presentation that lists different ways you can use moodle in the classroom.

 Language Arts

 The LightingBug –   @TCEA: Lightning Bug is a writing resource website with interactive elements for tween and teen writers. http://www.lightningbug.com.au/index.htm

  Math

SumDog – @briandvorak: Classrooms can enter the Sumdog contest: Sumdog – Free math games #edtech #math sumdog.com

    • Math Games – can hold class competitions and play against players in other areas.
    • Teachers can register for accounts and upload students.   Basic skills are covered, but might be appropriate for intervention classes

    • control the budget of the federal government
