> Kanban2go is a new task management service that has a highly visually-driven interface. The basic function of Kanban2go is to provide you with a virtual sticky note board that is divided into three columns. Your to-do notes are color coded and sorted into columns of to-do, in progress, and completed. Each to-do note can be assigned a due date and a status.
Kanban2go can be synched with Google Calendar, iCal, Outlook, and Evernote. You can share your assignment boards with others via email and or Twitter.
Applications for Education
There certainly is not a shortage of online task management tools for students and teachers to try. If you're looking for a task management tool with a bit of visual pop, give Kanban2go a try.

Blogs and Wikis have some common denominators:
They are both websites
They are both user-generated (the content of blogs and wikis is created by the actual people who use the blogs or wikis)
They both allow users to comment on the content
Wikis are better than blogs for:
Archiving information for easy access
Gathering information from a group of people. For example, the wiki Library Success collects information from librarians around the world. (See this past MPLIC Tech Train blog post for more information about Library Success)
Blogs are better than wikis for:
Quickly sharing new information
Starting and maintaining a dialog between the publisher and reader
It is really amazing how technology is transforming education and making it way easier and better than it used to be. If you are a digital immigrant like me ( 30 years old up ), you would exactly not only know what I am talking about but also feel it. When I think back to those pen and pencil days when instruction used to take place in a boring classroom full of chalk dust and how hard and limited our access to information was, I know how lucky our students are to be living in this digital boom where unlimited knowledge is at their fingertips.
Please keep in mind that many of the tools I have already reviewed here before are not included and I listed only new ones , because if I include all, the list will be more than 50 tools.

Creating videos and using them with students in the classroom is an important skill of the 21st century teacher. Some educators wrongly think that making a video requires software download and advanced video editing skills, a claim which has been rebutted by web 2.0 technologies. There are now several online and web-based tools where one can easily and simply create a video and share it with others. These tools do not need any software installation and , most of the time, needs only a quick and free sign up.
To help teachers and educators make the maximum benefit from such web technologies, I have compiled a list of some useful tools for this purpose. Check it out :
