What have you bookmarked lately?

Keeping up with my world has been a little daunting these days, but I wanted to be sure to get a quick post out as I have been tagged...while I am not a big fan of these memes I kind of liked going to Lisa's site and seeing what she has been bookmarking and since I am doing a workshop on later this week so I thought it would be a good way to prove the power of networks as well as find some other users to add to my network.

So here are the rules and here are my bookmarked sites...
1) Once you've been tagged, link your most recent bookmarked pages back to your blog
2) Name the tag that you have used so others can access the links easily in a blog post
3) At the end of your post, tag 6 people and list their names, linking to them.
4) Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they've been tagged.

So what have I bookmarked on lately?

Kentucky Virtual Library has a neat how to do research page: I like the steps listed Plan, Search for Information, Take Notes, Use the Information, Report, and Evaluate and that each step models links for student use.

I also bookmarked this article from EdWeek about whether our Graduates are writing ready

I think the process of blogging in subject areas is fascinating and while I have read Dan Myer's Math blog for a while now, I came upon all of Chris Harbeck's Math blogs and wikis, boy is he doing neat things in middle school training kids to think about the Math Process.

Another cool blog project. Have students blog the story of Hamlet from the voice of the characters. The difference between Gertrude's and Hamlet's blogs from the theme of the skins to the voice of the writing is fun to see and I use this as an example all the time

With much of the "international travel" I have done lately with flashmeeting, I was looking for a timezone converter and really like this one.

So there you have it what I have bookmarked recently

I am going to call on some of my PA / network....
A. To help me out with my presentation at the CFF Bootcamp over the next 2 weeks
B. Cause you haven't shared anything recently with the tag for:hokie62798

Ken Rodoff
Kurt Paccio
Ken Pruitt
Chris Champion
Jim Gates

Even if you weren't tagged, feel free to leave me your most recent bookmarks here or better yet, tag them for:hokie62798 on


  1. I am attempting to seperate my messy personal bookmarks and bookmarks I offer to teachers here at DuBois.

    For that I have created a different delicious account.

    There I am trying to do a better job of tagging for content or grade level. Math, history, reading...ect.

    That's what I'm tagging. Good luck with your presentation. I will share more with you via delicious.
    Your Pal, :)

  2. Thanks for the link and nice comments about my students Math blogs. This years blogs are starting to roll out now. We'll see where they take themselves this year. I know the students will push the envelope of 21st Century learning.
