    x37 Ways Teachers Should Use Pinterest37 Ways Teachers Should Use Pinterest
    http://www.bestcollegesonline.com/blog/2012/02/05/37-ways-teachers-should-use-pinterest/
    There are a lot of great technology tools out there for teachers that can make it easier to connect with other educators, get ideas for classroom activities, and find inspiration. One of the newest and best of these online tools is Pinterest, which has quickly become a favorite among educators. Using online “pinboards” teachers can save everything from photos to blog posts in one easily accessible and usable place.
    Educators who are curious about Pinterest should sign up for an invitation today (it’s still invite only, but it doesn’t take long to get an invitation) and start creating their own amazing collections of pins. Not sure where to start? Check out some of these great ideas on how teachers can use Pinterest.

    2. A series of Tools to check out.
    This one is a wiki, in fact Wikispaces, same as this course site. Web 2.0 Cool Tools for Schools. There is a ton here, so dive deep. http://cooltoolsforschools.wikispaces.com/. This wiki had been nominated for the Best Wiki award and son several years in a row.
    Before you dig in to deep, click on the last link in the list, Tools Index for this site A-Z.
    I think you will be surprised at the length of this list. For your reflection, find 3 tools, you did not know about already and that your think will be useful to you in your teaching and classroom.
    Your post should contain, a screen capture form the original tools website, the complete URL, a description of what the tool is and of course your reflection about why you love it and think it will be useful and how you see yourself using it.
    And.......create an small example/sample using the tool.
    The sample should also be included in your reflection. Each tool should be a new reflection with its own title.

    Make sure you add your slideshow to your website as a movie. HINT: Sometimes it is easier to add a movie to WP by uploading the movie to your YOUTUBE account and getting the embed code from there.
    And of course, write a reflection/response about using iPhotos in your classroom to help you teach a concept or whatever and give not less than 2 ideas of how you could use images and tools like iPhoto or something similar like PhotoStory for Windows in your classroom. This should be located in the same post as the photo slideshow movie.
    Adding your Mystery Word Slide show to your website, File > Export > Medium, then that the exported movie, upload to YouTube, grab the embed code and add your your site.
    Title this project: Mystery Word Slideshow using iPhoto
    Each team will share their slideshow in class
