Latest Web 2.0 Tools from our K-12 Editor

From our October Edition of the MindShare Learning Report our K-12 Editor Tim Gard gives us three great web 2.0 tools for teachers to check out! Follow Tim Gard on Twitter @MindShareK12

Edsby is a cloud-based social learning platform that helps schools and districts transform communication. It’s the brainstorm of the individuals who put together FirstClass and it’s Canadian-based. Truly worth a serious look if you’re looking to replace your current LMS! – Touted as a business tool, but definitely has application in the educational community. This is part online slideshow combined with YouTube combined with screen recording! Nice feature set and definitely worth the time to explore if you want to stay a step ahead of the online slide revolution.

Deeyoon is  an online platform that lets you participate in live debates, create your own video debates, and even watch and vote on other debates. Definitely an interesting forum; but can you ‘can it’ for the classroom?
