The Awesome Highlighter
From Michael Gorman's blog:
"The Awesome Highlighter, a free web resource that allows students to save only the text needed, keep it in a digital format, archive the resource it came from, and print only the information necessary!" Read his summary of how it works. Students can also add sticky notes.
The part I like is that it has social media functionality because it allows you to share marked up pages via email, Facebook, Delicious, or Twitter.
I started following Gorman on Twitter. [http://21centuryedtech.wikispaces.com/] He has a 21st Century Ed Tech Wiki that looks good. I know I can learn something from his wiki. He is really into project-based learning.
