At St. Hilda’s and St. Hugh’s today, I’m talking with an extraordinary group of teachers at a NYSAIS workshop. The topic is using technology in teaching. We’re going to build a list of resources we’ve talked about today for posterity. Who’s first?

  1. I noticed that your center had an interview with Timo Hannay of Nature. Their Connotea (www.connotea.org) project is a worthwhile resource for science research–it’s like flickr or del.ic.ious but specifically for science citations. CiteULike is similar project and also worth checking out (www.citeulike.org).
