Have you purchased a professional text and wanted to brainstorm or discuss with colleagues the content, yet no one else in your building or district had read the book? Perhaps you read text on integrating technology in the classroom and wanted to explore what educators in other districts or states were doing? Beginning, December 1, 2011, those professional reading challenges can be resolved. ITIP Ohio, an ISTE affiliate, is announcing a new professional development online book discussion of current ISTE titles. For more information and registration, check ITIPOhio.org for complete details. A preview of the discussion site is available at ITIP Ohio Book Chats. Please consider joining us, and perhaps, invite a few colleagues as well, to explore and analyze the decision-making required of educators today.

Students enjoy personalizing everything from their notebooks, lockers, to their clothes and hair styles. Bring that love of personalization into the computer lab with a personalized search desktop. A student only needs to login to ShinySearch by selecting a style/interest category and typing his/her name. ShinySearch then produces the Google search page into a customed-designed seach page for the student. Students can use ShinySearch at home, and once customized by their interests and name, save the site as a homepage. As a homepage, ShinySearch provides additional features with a quick link to email accounts, social networking sites, news, and more resource sites. Guaranteed a few adults might like this as a homepage as well. Check out this site and more @ Ace-Notebook.

Still developing, the possibilities of Qwiki are limitless. As advertised, it is truly "An Information Experience." To describe this tool as a search engine, would be a misnomer. You must "experience" it to understand Qwiki.


Caution:
As Qwiki moves from Alpha to Beta in development, hopefully there will be a filter for educational purposes as some content and images may be too mature for younger students.
