Making Connections #10 6-12-07

We took a look at some new sites : 
Electrocity ElectroCity is a new online computer game that lets players manage
their own virtual towns and cities. It’s great fun to play and also
teaches players all about energy, sustainability and environmental
management. This site comes to us from New Zealand.

Smilebox, lets you can create animated scrapbooks, photobooks,
slideshows, postcards, and greetings for any occasion, and email them
to anyone. Free- with Google ads.  Here is a sample from graduation.

And we revisited Gliffy, another concept mapping tool.  Jose had a
great idea for using Gliffy to design a classroom.  This will be a
great tool for new teachers as well as experienced educators.  Move all
those desk around on your screen before you break you back moving the
"real" furniture.  I’m definitely going to add this one to my new teacher orientation.
