The Friday Five – Week in Review

This week was an exciting week for Free Technology for Teachers. On Tuesday, Larry Ferlazzo nominated this blog for an Edublog Eddy Award. Then on Thursday, Free Technology for Teachers surpassed the 1000 subscriber mark for the first time. Thank you to everyone who has subscribed. Sharing the things I find on the web is fun for me and I am glad that so many people find the things I write useful in some way.

Every week I share the five most popular items of the week. This week there were three blog posts that were tied for the fifth position so this week there are seven items in the list.

1. 34 Ways to Use RSS
2. View Ancient Rome in Google Earth… A Chance to Win Stuff Too
3. My Nominations for the 2008 Edublog Awards
4. Five Great Grammar Resources
5. Create a National Parks Virtual Tour
5. The Tell Tale Heart Narrated by James Mason
5. Middle Spot – Visualize and Share Search Results

In celebration of passing 1000 subscribers I am listing some of the people that have helped grow Free Technology for Teachers. I’m always nervous making a list like this because I’m afraid of leaving someone out. If I forgot to add your name to the list, I sincerely apologize.
