The Week In Review - And a Special Beta Invite

It was another busy week for Free Technology for Teachers. This week we found out that Free Technology for Teachers is on the short list of nominees for an Edublog Award in the category of Best Resource Sharing Blog. I'm still flattered just to be in the same list as people like Larry Ferlazzo.

Now for that special beta invite. Earlier this week I wrote a long post about an exciting reference resource called Nibipedia. In a nut shell Nibipedia combines Wikipedia with YouTube. Until this week Nibipedia was doing all of the reference to video matching in a closed system. On Wednesday they opened it up a bit. Nibipedia is looking for classroom teachers that would like to try making they're own mash-ups of Wikipedia and YouTube. If you would like to give it a try I have a beta key that I can give to 23 more people. If you're interested please send me an email at rbyrnetech at hotmail or direct message me on Twitter.
And now, here are the five most popular items of the last seven days.
1. We Didn't Start the Fire Montage
2. Show World- Change the World One Map At a Time
3. Five Free Crossword Puzzle Builders
4. Twitter 4 Teachers - Find Twitterers Like You
5. Attention Art Teachers
