Tizmo - Build a Homepage of Your Favorite Websites

Tizmos is a new company offering customized homepages for your web browser. Using Tizmos you can select the websites that you frequently read and have thumbnails of those websites on your Tizmos homepage. In some ways this is like having visual references of an RSS feed from your favorite websites. See the screen capture below or visit my Tizmos page for an example.















Applications for Education
Having students create personalized Tizmos pages could be a good way for them to keep up with news from around the world. Allowing students to add a website of their own choosing along with your required websites might be one way to encourage students to check the news often.
