This post goes out to the wonderful group of people that I had the privilege of facilitating some technology training for yesterday at the Western Arkansas Education Cooperative.

As you practice the skills that were covered yesterday pertaining to RSS and Google Reader, visit and subscribe to this page containing all the resources that I collect and tag as “administration.”

You’ll find articles there dealing with student discipline, curriculum issues, technology leadership, etc.

Most recently, you’ll find information debating the importance of homework and the move to make electronic textbooks available to students.

P.S. Don’t forget to access and bookmark the wiki that contains all of the resources that we dealt with yesterday and add your own ideas on the Future Topics page.

We go back to the week of September 7-13, 2008 for this week’s blast-from-the-past.

On September 12, I linked to a resource from the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies that identified 25 of the Top 100 Tools for Learning in 2008.

While reviewing those tools, I found that out of the 25 tools listed, 5 were “Google Tools.”

If you aren’t familiar with Google’s Tools for Educators, do yourself a favor and check out the enormous list of applications that Google makes available to teachers.

Google also identifies several examples of how their products are being used in K-12 classrooms every day.

As usual, I have collected several other resources for you to review including integration links for Google Earth and Google Sites.

All of these tools are free and will help you be more productive and effective.
