I read the article about you in THE Journal and checked out your Top 10 2.0 tools for Young Learns. I think they are fabulous!! I was wondering how you get around the need for email addresses to create accounts for your students. How can you use these tools for kids 13 years-old and under? I'm a middle school computer teacher and would love to use some of these 2.0 applications with my classes, but I am having difficulty with access. Any suggestions?

What are you doing about the part of the agreement that says:
This is in many Web 2.0 tools. If they are not 13 you are out of luck. If they are between 13 and 18 you need to depend on parents being able to do this at homw.
Do you find this valuable?

Good applications Gail. You have several of mine but some that I would like to add would be:
3) Wordle - http://wordle.net - Effective and fun way to create word clouds, for introducing new topics and subjects, reviewing information, or just designing your world with words.
2) Joggle - http://beta.joggle.com/ - Excellent tool for creating slide shows for student project presentations, for teaching multimedia lessons in class, or online presentations. You can embed movies straight onto your website. It is free and joggle hosts your movies.
1) AND MY NUMBER ONE (For today anyway) - Jing - http://www.jingproject.com/ - Snap a picture of your screen, Record video of onscreen action, and share instantly over the web, IM, email, or embed straight onto your own website. THIS IS SO COOL! Jing is free and allows you to record screencasts, with audio, and save the files as a swf, or if you pay for the pro version, mp4 files. Jing also has automatic uploading capabilities with Screencast.com (So I guess I am recommending screencast.com too!) I am using jing to record lectures and upload to my website. This is very cool!
Enjoy these tools. They make teaching more fun (for us!) and more relevant (for them!)
And when you get a chance, head over to Wired Wednesday, for tech tips, conversation and the Wired Wednesday Podcast! See you there.
