my student colleague Grace Yeo shared with us this “EmergingEdTech’s 2012 Free Education Technology Resources eBook” released earlier in the year by EmergingEdTech.com under the CC-BY-NC-SA license.
while i’m not sure if all the ICT mentioned are still “emerging”, it does give a good list of tools which teachers can explore or revisit, which includes:
- Blogs (it’s listed first! but no, this is not the reason why i blogged an entry of this ebook :p )
- Collaboration & Brainstorming Tools
- Educations Games & Fun Tools
- Educational Videos, Lecutres, and Podcasts
- Free resources
- iPads and the list goes up to 13 (:

James Farmer and his team over at edublogs.org have put together this “The WordPress MU Site Admin Guide” guide. It may give some tips on WordPress MU administration if you are running one.
Btw, WordPress (in short “WP“) is an opensource blog publishing platform/engine (:
Excellent post and list of resources for the bloggers:
Blogging Toolbox: 120+ Resources for Bloggers by Stan Schroeder, Livia Iacolare, Rodney Rumford, Scott Allen, James Mowery, Todd Carter & Ben Gold.
Thanks to one and all at Mashable for putting this together!
Microsoft has released the Windows Live Writer which is a WYSIWYG. It can do posting to different blog engines, not just Spaces. However the software is still in its BETA, so do expect many bugs to run around 😛
Read this post off Dave Tosh’s blog, a paper “Elgg and Blogging in primary education” by Miles Berry was mentioned in the post. Could serve as a useful resource if one would like to explore/implement the ELGG platform.
