The personal learning network for educators
Hello all, I see that this group has been quiet for awhile, and thought I'd join/stop by to see if I might wake it up! :)
It's easier and easier to learn of resources these days, and I believe/hope we're all getting a bit better at limiting how many tools / resources we invest time into working with.
I am curious about which might most fall into the category of "tried and true" for you?
Are you more inclined to pay for resources now than you were 5 years ago? (I am, to some extent, though I still love the freebies.)
I don't use diigo nearly as much as I used to (used it several times a week for years, now don't; not entirely sure why?)
I teach primarily online, with a Ning site.
[I worked for English Cafe for years before they went offline in 2012. I founded/started my own site, lewwwp.com the day English Cafe closed, ran LEWWWP (Learn English With a WorldWide Perspective) from Feb. 2012 through Dec. 2016, but it is now closed.]
Some major health and personal challenges left me unable to work for many months. Now I'm essentially retired, but what does that mean in this day and age? I'm back, on a more limited basis.
I've started another Ning, 7H, much smaller scale, simpler than LEWWWP (Learn English With a WorldWide Perspective) was. 7H is entirely free. You're welcome to visit and certainly welcome to join if so inclined.
I collect/share resources there: https://sevenh.ning.com/discussion-topics/Resource+Lists
Thanks to Nik Peachey, I've been exploring word-booster.com
I find myself using https://www.powerthesaurus.org/ a lot, too.

Hope to learn with/from you,
