At St. Hilda’s and St. Hugh’s today, I’m talking with an extraordinary group of teachers at a NYSAIS workshop. The topic is using technology in teaching. We’re going to build a list of resources we’ve talked about today for posterity. Who’s first?
A meta resource for technology and education, including sharing of information and tools and the like
An RSS aggregator with a social component
Another RSS aggregator
A tagging service and search engine
A course management system or content management system, which is open source
A virtual world in which some classes are taught
A wiki service, related to Wikipedia
Another wiki service
A means of finding works online that you can re-use in the classroom, or that your students could use
A new blog on tech and teaching
A best-of-breed, free/open source rotisserie discussion system
A place to share reading lists, course syllabuses, and the like, with support for cool things like OPML
I guess eduforge.org should be a must in this list 🙂
Good list! I just started a blog on technology in teaching (applied toward online and hybrid university-level faculty).

I noticed that your center had an interview with Timo Hannay of Nature. Their Connotea (www.connotea.org) project is a worthwhile resource for science research–it’s like flickr or del.ic.ious but specifically for science citations. CiteULike is similar project and also worth checking out (www.citeulike.org).
