Notes from OFT Thursday (better late than never!)

classtools.net - name picker, math facts, can embed in blog
todaysmeet.com - chat room/back channel (can you text to it? need to check)
filedropper.com - upload files to share
worksheetworks.com - graphic organizers (Venn diagrams?)
tripit.com - build travel itinerary

google search - wonder wheel, advanced search (file type: .ppt... look for Jeopardy, etc.)

Searching for free/usable images:
compfight.com
images.google.com/hosted/life (pictures from Life magazines)
stockvault.net
morguefile.com (not dead people, really)
flickr.com/commons
blip.tv
hulu.com (can edit to just a specific clip; embeddable)

Music:
owl.com
ccmixter.com
freemusicplay.com
One thing that I picked up at the Free Images talk was that Firefox (which I use as my browser) has the option of searching within Creative Commons. Up in the top right corner of the page, in the normal search engine box (which is usually set to Google for me)


you can pull down and change to CC. Very cool!
