  • Curriki – SummerofContent
    This is a great opportunity from a great education (and social change) project – and I hope some of the teachers in my network will take advantage of this: "Do you have an instructional unit or course you’re proud of that you’d like to publish and get paid for? Interested in earning money this summer to develop a new unit that will be shared with a global audience? For our Summer of Content initiative, Curriki is soliciting elementary and middle school content in ELA, math, science, and social studies. Apply by April 15th, 2009."

  • Session Manager :: Firefox Add-ons
    Thanks to @mslinch who shared this with me. I think this is a must-have Firefox extension for teachers or anyone else: "Session Manager saves and restores the state of all windows – either when you want it or automatically at startup and after crashes. Additionally it offers you to reopen (accidentally) closed windows and tabs."
