Tonight I had a wander around the web in between talking on twitter and gtalk, answering comments and sending emails. One of the things I found was this great video on Social Bookmarking by The Common Craft Show.
The Common Craft Show is written, directed, produced, etc. by Lee and Sachi LeFever using basic materials. The Show is presented by Common Craft, a social design consulting company. Their videos are under 5 minutes and explain things like Social Bookmarking in easy to understand terms. They call our format “paperworks” and think lo-fi is the new hi-fi.
I have several of their other videos on my What is that? page. I have just been introducing my students to del.icio.us and we will be viewing this in class next week. These are really wonderfully simple but get the point across so well. Well done guys!
I also found that on the home page of edublogs.org if I selected tags like bb31days from the tag cloud at the bottom of the page it brought up all my posts about the Blogging Challenge. I selected a lot of tags that I had included on my posts and could also see what other members of edublogs had written with the say tags. Very interesting way to be able to view post. This is a great tool Thanks James!
One of the other great feature that is on the home page of edublogs.org is the “Blog of the hour” of which Sue and I have been in several times over the past week due to our readers support. James also has an article to help you make your edublog frontpage news
