Some of the Super Cool Resources Demoed at EduBloggerCon’s “Smackdown”:

Sweet Search: A search engine for students which pulls only from sites vetted by research experts.

Metamark: A URL shortener, like, where the namespace is still fairly wide open and you can still get some good names.

Read it Later: How many times do you have a gazillion browser windows open because you want to read them later? Read it Later is a sanity-saving, one-time bookmarking tool that works with all the major browsers. Want.

Edmodo: Beautifully designed and free social networking platform customized for the needs of teachers and students. Private, collaborative, awesome. Every so often, someone asks a relatively dumb question that they could just have easily Googled the answer for themselves. This tool is to help you help them. But beware; it’s snarky, and best used very sparingly!
