That's right! Thought you could get rid of me, didn't you? After a six month hiatus from the blogosphere (except for my 365 blog that is really only for friends and family), I'm back at it! Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and contributing tips, tricks and hopefully the odd piece of humour with all of my ed tech family!
Where have I been, you ask? Well for the past 6 months I've been completely devoted to this beautiful little man:
And while I'm still going to be at home with him, I'm jumping back into being a contributor for our blog here at Sharp's Audio Visual. I promise to not bore you too much with pictures of my babe or funny YouTube videos of other people's babes and I certainly will keep my diaper/poop stories to myself. ;)
Just to prove how serious I am about keeping this promise, I give you my first techie tip of 2012...which is really more of a "have you heard?" but go easy on me -- it's my first one!
For those who haven't yet heard of this fantastic site, I encourage you to check out fur.ly. Essentially, it allows you to enter multiple urls, that will then be grouped onto one website.
Once you've entered them (such as the 3 elementary math games sites that I used in the example above), it gives you a shortened url that you can then direct your students to. It will pull up the first website that you entered, and allow them to navigate through the others using the forward and back arrows in the top left hand corner:
Happy 2012 everyone! So excited to be back on here!
