First Week of Classes

Pursuant to a discussion at a November Learning conference this summer, I’ve decided to spend the first week of classes teaching my IB students about some internet tools and tips for their research, both in IB and in college.

Here’s the itinerary for the first week:


  • Expectations of my class
  • Sample video
  • Navigating my course website
  • Introduction to QR codes



  • More efficient Google searching
  • Country codes and internet suffixes
  • Using the “site:” command


  • Introduction to
  • Introduction of (with the WayBackMachine)


  • Introduction to Diigo

We can always start math next week, right?
