Tech BFF: There’s Snow Flake Like PageFlakes!

BFF is an acronym for “Best Friend Forever.” These websites and tips are so good that they will become your technology BFFs!

Pleasantly stunned is an accurate description to describe the joy of finding PageFlakes unblocked on the school filters of our 4OOPS LinkClickers.

PageFlakes is a free, interactive webpage authorship portal. Simply create a free account and begin your page by choosing from interactive modules called “flakes.” There are thousands of flakes available that make it easy for anyone to aggregate content, RSS feeds, and widgets for many practical applications. There is even an “Anything Flake” which is pretty self-explanatory.

Publish your page by creating a “Pagecast” with a personalized link. Pagecasts may be either public, private, and/or shared. Students love the dynamic collaborative interactivity and message board options for immediate feedback with teachers. One student remarked that PageFlakes was more fun than MySpace. Pleasantly stunned again!
