Raise your hand if you've ever taken a class to a lab and had more than half of them type in a web address incorrectly... over and over, and seriously, how can you misspell GOOGLE?!? Symbaloo is cool web tool that lets you gather all of your links in one place. Once you get your students to your Symbaloo page, all of the web resources you want them to use are a click away!

Share Links with Students with Symbaloo!

Symbaloo is a web tool that lets you create interactive link menus. All you have to do is click, type or paste in the web link, arrange your links, then share the menu with your students.

You can also use Symbaloo to organize your own favorite links. I've shared a pic of my Symbaloo webmix that I use as my homepage.
