Dear Colleagues, Here is an excellent, creative, and brief article by Kelly Tenkely: http://theapple.monster.com/benefits/articles/8529-10-technology-enhance... ps: I also like the 'old-fashioned' ones that are enhanced by student hand-made arts, like: dioramas, puppets, desktop cardboard theater sets, collages, music videos, etc. Allen Berg kasha8888

Dear Colleagues,

Upon closer re-view of this article, I just realized that it was written about 2 years ago!! but it was delivered to my emailbox today:
April 25, 2011 by curriki.org.

And I don't like the introductory text of the article that makes "book reports" sound like some evil inflicted upon students...

Perhaps the List is useful...but because it is from 2 years ago, some of the websites are changed dramatically ("Shelfari" is now commercially-orientedand for the adult general public) and maybe some websites are dormant or 'deceased'...?

I apologize for this hasty posting, without first confirming its currency and appropriateness...

Maybe some of the websites and readers comments on the original page will be helpful to teachers... I hope so...

to be continued...
