I’m still a big fan of Diigo and Twitter. My professional development has fast-forwarded at warp speed as a result of interacting with individuals with common professional interests worldwide. I’d enjoy having you join me.

Weebly is an excellent way for teachers and students to develop websites. The time investment in learning this tool is under five minutes. There’s little reason for newbies to struggle with learning Composer, Dreamweaver, or HTML. Weebly also makes it possible to seamlessly integrate a blog with your website. Unbelievable.

Zoho is another favorite online tool. While my needs do not cause me to use Zoho on a daily basis…yet…I’m amazed and impressed by their offerings. The Zoho team is quietly developing some of the most robust tools out there. I’m currently using Zoho Polls to help collect data for this discussion.

As a reminder, I still think Jott rocks.

Adium works as well on a Mac as Trillian does on a PC. I’ve been a fan of Trillian for many years and have always wished I could use it on my Mac computers. I intend to make a full transition back to Mac in June, so this is a welcome discovery. The best part is that I get everything I like about the subscription version of Trillian for free with Adium.

Thank goodness for Wi-Fi. I’m sitting in the shade in the backyard watching the sunset over the lake while putting the final touches on this post. I remember the days when we had to get up and walk across the room and turn the dial on the TV to change the channel. I wonder what future innovations will bring us.

  1. Hi!

    I agree! Zoho has some amazing stuff (I’ve completed several projects using the writer and spreadsheet programs). Everyone runs to googleDocs because it’s from Google, but every time I show someone Zoho they are really impressed.

    The future? Hmmm…maybe the keyboard will become a quaint reminder…wondering how we put up with numb fingers and carpal tunnel…

    Interesting ideas!
    Adam
