I forgot how much I enjoyed exploring Go2Web2.0 – I searched it when I took my first educational technology workshop years ago. Back then, there were not 71 pages of options to explore. I spent [insert embarrassing number] of hours looking at the site this week. These are some of the new favorites and old that had been forgotten that I found:

Brainstorming and Timelines

  • Edistorm ~ Collaborative brainstorming with options to enhance the discussion in real life.
  • Popplet ~ Collaborative brainstorming, basic but wonderful.
  • Dipity ~ Timeline creation
  • Preceden ~ Timeline creation that can include multiple tiers.

Visual Presentations or Pictures

  • PhotoPeach ~ Very cool display of pictures.
  • PhotoSnack ~ Upload pictures and get an interactive cube of the pictures.
  • Prezi ~ Presentations that will wow (or confuse if you aren’t careful)
  • FlixTime ~ Create multimedia presentations in 3 easy steps.

Digital Storytelling / Journals

  • StoryJumper ~ Create eBooks for students to read online. There are some partially prefabricated books that can be customized or you can create one from scratch. There is an option to buy a hard cover print of your book.
  • Penzu ~ Online private journal
  • Little Bird Tales ~ Their goal is to capture childhood
  • myebook ~ Create eBooks online

Polling / Quizzes


  • Draw.to ~ Like paint, but you can send or embed the result without needing to log in to anything.
  • Jux ~ Visually pleasing web. Create something powerful with images.
  • MessageHop ~  No sign in necessary to create and send a message. It can include a picture and text, which is automatically animated.
  • Mokk.me ~ Mobile app mock up. Still extremely beta, but might be applicable at in some contexts.
  • Stiqr ~ A widget for web design
  • Hi, I’m ~ Digital nametag, keep all your contact information for different sites in one place.
  • mind360 ~ Brain training games
  • AddInto ~ Add more possibilities to the Add/Share button on your website
  • Tynt ~ See who was interested in your web content and who might have copied form it
