ICT Tip: Furly allows you to line-up a list of websites before teaching your class

28 Sep

Quick overview: Furly is a website that allows you to store multiple website addresses you’d like to present in your upcoming class. Once class starts, you can simply jump to each website without having to type in complicated web addresses or sift through piles of bookmarks. No complicated installations or passwords required. Extremely easy to use!

How can this be used in the classroom: If you regularly present different websites to your students, the Furly website (http://fur.ly) can help things run more smoothly. Using the Furly website, you won’t have to scramble to type in long addresses (while your class waits!) or search through a huge list of bookmarks when presenting different websites to your class. An added bonus is that you can you can easily share the list of websites with your students after class (with a unique URL) so they can consult the list of websites at a later date. I’ll show you how it’s all done in the video tutorial below. Highly recommended! (Source: Tammy Worcester, ISTE 2010 Denver conference)
