Video Creation
Topic: All subjects

Video is the language of the new millennium. This site will be used to help students and teachers begin to view video content creation in much the same way that we look at writing now.  There will be short “How To” videos on video. There will be sample videos. Eventually students will create content and upload it to the site, where teachers can critique and can help students. No content will be longer than 5 minutes.

140+ Search Engines
Topic: All subjects
A great research link to over 140 search engines and directories. The fact that most students don’t even consider switching Google for anything else doesn’t mean that there’s no innovation going on in the field of search. Quite the contrary; which can be seen from the list of search engines at this site.

Topic: All subjects
MindMeister, which is currently in private beta (enter your email and you might get an invite), is a new online mindmapping tool similar to, Gliffy’s web-based diagram service and Mayomi (now dead, it seems).
