I will admit it. I am a complete web 2.0 junkie. My favorites folder on Internet Explorer has a sub-folder of about 50 sites that I have tried or dabbled as part of my quest to find apps that can be meaningfully integrated with our approach to teaching. Though my wife might disagree, I don’t like clutter. As more and more sites are added to my favorites, it’s making me feel a little cluttered. Thankfully, I came across www.symbaloo.com on Twitter and now feel like I’ve found religion when it comes to de-cluttering my web 2.0 apps.
The site is really simple in its use. It takes all the sites you use on a regular basis and creates an interface similar to the screen of an iPhone/Pad or Droid device. The little squares are quick links to the sites and are completely customizable. Now, I did have to pare down my list of apps a little…but that’s okay. I’ve still got that huge folder in my Internet Explorer as a back up!
