8 Epic Tools to Try This School Year - A Podcast With Vicki Davis

A few weeks ago I Vicki Davis invited me to be a guest on her fantastic 10 Minute Teacher Podcast. As the title implies, in the podcast I shared an overview of eight educational technology tools that can be used in almost any classroom. You can find the 10 Minute Teacher Podcast on all major podcast distribution networks. You can also listen to it directly on Vicki's Cool Cat Teacher blog and on YouTube.

Have You Listened to the 10-Minute Teacher Podcast?

I don't listen to many podcasts because many of them feel like the hosts are just talking to fill time. But the 10-Minute Teacher Podcast hosted by Vicki Davis is an exception to that pattern. Every episode is just ten minutes long and is packed with handy tips for teachers. Every episode features a different guest who passes along some knowledge to teachers.

I was fortunate enough to be a guest on one of Vicki's recent 10-Minute Teacher episodes. In the episode I shared five of my favorite ed tech tools for social studies classrooms. You can listen to it here. And you can find all of the episodes here.

How to Automatically Send Diigo Links to Your Blog - H/T @CoolCatTeacher

Last night on Twitter Rick Burkett asked me for a suggestion on how to efficiently share with his faculty members the apps and sites he discovers. One of my suggestions was to use Diigo to automatically post bookmarks to an existing school / staff site. I knew that Vicki Davis does this on a regular basis so I referred Rick to Vicki. This morning Vicki shared a video that she made about how to automatically post Diigo links to bookmarks to your blog. That video is embedded below.


While I was looking at Vicki's video I noticed that she has a great list of video tutorials on her Cool Cat Teacher YouTube channel, check it out.

Help 20 Cool (cat) 9th Graders from Georgia

If you subscribe to Read Write Web you may have already seen this story. Vicki Davis, author of the Cool Cat Teacher blog, and her students are planning a protest against Google's planned shut-down of Lively. On her blog, Vicki has outlined the ways in which others can join in the attempt to get Google to reconsider their decision. See Vicki's blog post, In Google We Trusted and Now Our Project's Busted, for the details.

I doubt that Google will reverse their decision, but I do see value in this project. Vicki's students and your students, if you choose to participate, will see the power and value of connected digital citizenship.
