Kwout it!

Trying a new tool that I read about called Kwout. Don’t really know why it’s called that–I think a lot of people in my world would be more likely to try tools if the language didn’t get in the way, but that’s another post…

Twitter via kwout

That is a screen capture of a piece of my twitter page this afternoon.

I can capture a screen shot easily and quickly and make it any size I need it to be. This is done with a useful little slider that sizes your kwout so you can see exactly how big it’ll be before you save/upload it–love that. They mashup with Blogger so that it’s wildly easy to post to my blog. Cool thing is that it says the hyperlinks within the graphic above are still hot, although I can’t tell as I type this. They’re not now, but they should be once this goes live. I’ll see how useful it ends up being. Like it at first blush!

Week 5 Thing #11 3rd entry!

What great timing! I subscribe to Joyce Valenza’s SLJ blog and yesterday’s post was an extensive list of Web 2.0 tools and how these tools might be used in the classroom/library.

Many of the tools she discusses are the same ones that we’ve explored, however there are some additional ones too! Take a look!
Her list is in 2 blog posts: here and here .
