Edgalaxy - a blog for nerdy teachers

issuu - A website that can store documents for you with unlimited file storage, your files where and when you need them. Explore thousands of magazine, reports and documents from around the world. Of course there is a catch, yes, it's free, but if you don't want advertising on your site then you have to pay, but heck, who cares about the ads, if most of what you want is free. A site you have to see to believe it.

Imagine it Project - A website with a large collection of video material as well as other material, a lot can be of good use for educational needs.

Martin Levins
Martin currently teaches and is Director of Information Technology at The Armidale School in Northern NSW, Australia. Why this guy? He was a key note speaker at a conference I attended in Sydney in 2009, The IWB Conference, his address was great listening. His website holds some good information, so at least have a look. http://is.gd/5UvSw

Great for brainstorming. Not blocked for students. No need to sign up, no ads - just start a session and invite people to join via a unique URL. At the end, export your document to Word, PDF or HTML. Give it a go with your students in a computer lab (Mac or Windows of course). Courtesy of Stu Hasic #yam

This link will take you to a forum for all Software Design teachers and students. It is a forum that is designed to help students self help one another with occasional input from the teacher. I have two very smart programming students who wanted to administer the site and answer the questions teachers and students placed there, so help is always at hand, especially if the code is Python.
