Links of interest 10/04/2011

  • The EDKB Wiki is a database that makes available the various interests, talents, and resources of the English Department community. See the Main Page to learn more about the EDKB. The wiki does not offer information on current course offerings, nor is it a comprehensive archive of materials related to all past courses. Visit the English Department home page for this type of information.

    "Toy Chest" collects online or downloadable software tools/thinking toys that humanities students and others without programming skills (but with basic computer and Internet literacy) can use to create interesting projects. Most of the tools gathered here are free or relatively inexpensive (exceptions: items that are expensive but can be used on a free trial basis). Also on this page are "paradigms"--books, essays, digital projects, etc.--that illustrate the kinds of humanities projects that software thinking tools/toys might help create.

  • Whether you’re a new or seasoned Twitter user, you likely come across confusing hashtags that probably look like a bunch of nonsense.

  • Leading up to the annual conference of INOTE, the Irish National Organisation for Teachers of English, at the end of next week, here is a start on a list of useful websites for English teachers (not as a foreign or second language, but as a 'humanities' subject). 'Useful' actually means recommended - this is a 'curated' list, and very much evolving.

    The list will be updated almost every day, so feel free to suggest more sites, with a brief comment, by the comments section underneath the post, or by Twitter via @sccenglish. Starting with Shakespeare, and continuing with General Poetry and English Teaching.
