Many thanks to Charlene Chausis of Lincolnshire, Illinois, for bringing the following web 2.0 tools to my attention today. Wow!
- Woophy is a photo website that conceptually combines to Flickr and 43places. Click on a map location and photos from that place are displayed in a right sidebar. Some really fantastic photos here. And they have a photo contest you can join too! Over 20,000 photos are currently on the site. Amazing. Don’t see photos from your home town? Contribute some!
- Writely, the “Web Word Processor,” allows people to collaboratively edit word processing files simultaneously using just their web browser. This looks like a read/write web version of SubEthaEdit (but cross-platform, of course!) You share access to a page you create using someone’s email address. This looks like a great tool to use when you want to collaborate on a document or set of documents, but the project doesn’t warrant creating an entire Wiki. This is in beta, hopefully they won’t start charging fees like JotSpot.
All the cool Web 2.0 resources I know about are listed on http://del.icio.us/wfryer/ReadWriteWebTools. My Web 2.0 workshop curriculum for teachers is available on www.wtvi.com/teks/web2/. Please use these resources with others! If you find them helpful or have suggestions please drop me a line.
