Last Tuesday I ran a session at Limmud conference on E-tools for education and community building at Limmud Conference UK.
As promised I am including links to all the resources discussed here, this post also gives me a chance to thank all the people who helped me put the session together.
You can watch the session replayed via Flashmeeting here http://flashmeeting.e2bn.net/fm/fmm.php?pwd=6091f7-11930&jt=00:19:52
It’s all taken via a laptop webcam so no great quality but if you listen with headphones you should be able to hear the audio fine and I will link to the presentation below.
You can see the voicethread I created below or via this direct link
Thanks to the following people who participated, many of whom have excellent blogs and websites that are linked to via their twitter profiles.
For those that don’t know Flashmeeting it’s a great and really simple tool for online meetings and discussion, I usually use the E2BN server at www.flashmeeting.e2bn.net which is free for UK Educators, an alternative is the Open University Open Learn server which seems to be open to all as long as you are happy for your meeting to be syndicated.
A couple of online participants mentioned the open Google Document “Useful Web 2.0 Tools for Jewish Educators and Staff Developers” – it is a a quickly growing and already large resource listing so many great web tools but also with links to tutorials and examples of each tool being used in education, a great resource for anyone in education.
Another list is one I compiled last year for a similar presentation where I asked people to submit their favourite tool via a Google Form, you can see the results at this link.
And an example use of wallwisher to compile yet more tools is here
Finally a link to my presentation from the session here also embedded below – it’s not a standalone presentation but maybe if you watch it alongside the flashmeeting linked to above it will make sense!
