Very simple website for your class that multiple people can edit. Think wiki with no ropes attached! No email address needed. Kids can use an alias. One password for the whole site. Locks multiple users out of page to prevent overwriting editing.
Conference Recorder for recording video iChats for vodcasting. Will also take QT movies and convert to mp3 for the audio only. Lots of other plug-ins at the site. Not free, but definitely inexpensive!
DropCopy’sjust a cool app! Only on the Mac, but allows you to drag and drop files to multiple users on your LAN. Also see IP Broadcaster and IP Scanner – two more helpful apps that we love!

Stop Cyberbullying Day is March 30th! We have to take a stand and speak out against what is happening. Freedom of speech does not mean you can harass and force people to hide out in their houses. Use March 30th to talk with your students about cyberbullyingâ€“what to do if they are being bullied and how not to be a cyberbully. This is not just kids, but everyone! (donâ€™t forget to tag your online entries with stopcyberbullying)
