Tool 4

Google Docs & Google Reader

Google Docs: I created a sample document and shared it with my family. It was actually easier than I thought it would be - :). This tool could be used for team input to update and collaborate on various activities/planning. It is also helpful by not having to remember to attach a document to an email!

Google Reader: I subscribed to 6 sites to follow (Technology & the Classroom; Mrs. Green's Blog Spot; Technology is my Challenge; Mary's Art Spot; Serenity Now; Kirina's Closet) - also easier to do than I thought. This tool could be helpful for saving time by having all the sites you follow in a central location.

Question: Do I need to 'hot link' any of these sites? and how? Thanks!

  1. Thanks for the link, mom! ^_^ ...even though my site isn't necessarily teaching related.

    You don't necessarily have to link the sites you listed, but, to your readers, it's "polite", and will make things easier for them - instead of copying and pasting what you listed into a search engine. I don't know how you would link through Blogspot. For my site, when I write the post, I highlight what I want to link, click the "link button", and then enter the actual web address. Try this code out:
    []Title of site/whatever you want to say[/url]
