Thing # 6

Every time I post I know I will return to school wanting to add more assignments to my lesson plans than I will have time to complete. My students are so impressed with what I know. This time is no exception. The list of mash-ups available is so immense. Bookr offers a great way to incorporate pictures with text. In my library I would suggest that students take advantage of this mash-up to put research information with photographs that correspond. Another web site I would incorporate is Flagrant Disregard's name badges. Students can identify a person and include important facts, including birthdate, aliases, and claims to fame. These tools can be used to modify research or simply add creative displays for the information students locate. These tools are easy to use and would be easy to explain to teachers, even reluctant ones. I cannot wait to coerce... I mean convince my team members to try these sites.


  1. How about creating a sample of something you would like your team to consider using?

  2. I checked out Bookr and loved it! I can think of many applications for using it in the classroom and library!

  3. Using Bookr or Name Badges for research is such a great idea! It's such an interactive way for students to learn, and it can be a nice, different way for assessment, too!
