Week 11- Tool Exploration

I did my project on an online collaboration site called Stixy.com.  I chose this site because it is a free site that you can use for professional or personal projects.  You can invite others to collaborate and you can incorporate your own photos and documents.  In the classroom, you could use it for small groups of students to do collaborative projects, or a whole class could do a project.  You could also create stixyboards for Open House or professional development days.

I used Jing (video recording) and Screencast (video sharing) for the first time as well.  They were really easy to use and have a lot of potential for use in the classroom and professional development areas.
