Blendspace - Bundle Lessons and Organize Student Work #edtech @blendspace

Blendspace is a great site that a colleague showed me that does a few things very well.  It helps teachers to organize all kinds of documents, links,  and media in one convenient location.  Plus, it gives a teacher a place to easily add student work onto one page to compile and show off what they've done.  It's like a virtual corkboard that you would normally see on the walls of a traditional classroom.

Right off the bat you get to sign in with your Google credentials, which is becoming more and more popular, and rightly so, especially when you're dealing with kids who can't remember passwords (and teachers too).  Once you're in you can create a lesson and you are presented with tiles on the left side that represent spaces where you can add stuff.  The list of things you can add and the places you can add them from is pretty impressive: YouTube, Google Search, Flickr, Educreations, Gooru, any webpage, upload media from your computer, DropBox, Google Drive, and Common Core Standards.

I highly recommend you check it out as well as the video below.
