THING #18-Online Productivity Tools
I visited Zoho Writer to see what it offered. It's an interesting site, like WORD online. I think it might have more uses for those with scientific needs. I think that for me personally, I can do about the same thing with WORD and a wiki. Zoho offers a wiki form also. I also took a tour of Google docs. It sounds like you can make a document and then post it directly to your blog. That would be neat. I've had trouble posting to this blog a few times when I did my post in WORD and then copy and pasted to blogger.com. They weren't friendly and I ended up typing my post again directly into the blog post. Perhaps Google and Zoho have a more blog friendly relationship! The Google Sites tutorial made creating a website sound very easy. I'm afraid the line between website and wiki becomes a bit blurred for me. To me, this is a site that acts as a website but is also a wiki.
THING #19- Check out Library Thing
I learned to use Library Thing just this last summer session for my YA class at Clarion. What a wonderful tool. I love seeing the pictures of the book jackets, being able to check out the reviews, and organizing my books in categories that work for me. For my poetry lesson I added 7 books under 5th grade poetry unit, assessible at http://www.librarything.com/catalog/Artzylibrarian. I have learned so much this semester and will have to spend some time updating my YA collection. I didn't understand about tags last semester. I used the tags column to record prices which also had to be included in our YA project. Hm...prices are not a good tag! I will have to work on that when I have more time.!
