Cool Tools …

As we know the internet is literally growing every second – I first saw this very neat Social Media Counter at the Transliteracy conference – it’s an astounding visual – watch the internet grow literally before your eyes!!

At the conference we also played a lot with Word Clouds – collections of words from documents and web sites – here’s a great list – The Best Resources for Learning about Word Clouds – from Larry Ferlazzo – scroll down the list to learn how word clouds can be used for learning.

For the list makers among us ( I confess to being a very committed list maker…) here’s a useful application Itumz which allows you to make lists – access them from any web browser and share your lists with anyone…

Finally here’s a free web-based photo editor – Phixr has a good suite of photo editing tools and is very easy to use.
