I’m in a week of training on better ways to teach with technology and one of the cool tools I’ve learned is Symbaloo. If you’re like me you run out of bookmark tabs on your browser and it’s a hassle to copy them from browser to browser or computer to computer. So here is a visual webpage that you can make your homepage and use it for quick links to as many as 100 bookmarks:
Here’s the first draft of my tab which includes news sites. I’ve put them in columns by topics.
So all I have to do is click on the icon and I go directly to that news site. You can have several tabs of these grids. There’s also an app for your mobile device.
It took me a couple hours to put it all together. While it recognizes some websites and provides logos, I ended up searching for a lot of them to input here. And as you can tell I made the quick-and-dirty column headers. But I think it will be a great time-saver in the end.
What if you did one that everyone in your newsroom could use? You can embed it on a website — another great feature.
