Where can we store and share with the world outside the classroom all the work our students do in blended and online lessons with the type of tools I've just shown? Blogs and wikis are my favorite suggestion.


I've been calling them text tools for quite some time, but in fact they are much more than that. They are multimedia tools, because we can link and embed in them different types of  tools, from text to audio, image and video. Thus the title "Multimedia tools".


Blogs and wikis are not only great tools to practice reading and writing. They can also be considered the "4 in 1": the four basic tools integrated in only one tool.


And then there's my latest discovery, "My Posterous", which allows for text, images, audio and video to be sent by email and uploaded in a matter of seconds.


Here are a few examples of work done with these tools.
