I’ve mentioned Phil Bradley many a time. He writes a very helpful blog, is extremely knowledgeable and has a sense of humour. I sense he does, anyway, from the way he writes. I like writers whose personality shines through, especially humour. There can’t be enough of it as far as I’m concerned! One of the things he does is maintain a site called ‘I want to’. Here’s what it’s about from its front page;
I want to:
“I want to…” or “I need to” or “How do I?” These are all questions we all ask all the time. This is a small collection of resources that will help to answer those questions. It is not complete, nor will it ever be. I will be adding to this on a regular basis, so feel free to bookmark it and come back and visit. Now listing over 1,000 applications.
Web 2.0 applications and resources to help collaborate, communicate, discover, email, laugh, generate images, podcast, use multimedia, store photographs, use RSS, internet search, shop, create start pages, store information, time management, train, teach and do things with webpages and websites.
This is a fabulous resource. Phil keeps it updated so the links are live and if something goes belly up he’ll let you know. It’s organised into categories and sub categories and a brief explanation accompanies each link so you have some idea of what the app is about. Like he says, this is one to bookmark and one to use in PD for staff. Pointing our students in the direction of this wouldn’t hurt also!
