Snap Shots: A New Blog Tool

While snowed in today (AGAIN), I visited some beautiful blogs around the world.  A new favorite of mine is the Green Park School Blog in the UK.  Their main school page links to the many classroom blogs, just like ours.  On their brilliant site (to borrow a word from Mr. Rafferty), I found nice little tool called Snap Shots.  Thank you Green Park School!

This tool enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, display inline videosRSSMP3sphotos, and more.

Sometimes Snap Shots bring you the information you need, without your having to leave the site, while other times it lets you “look ahead,” before deciding if you want to follow a link or not.

Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt-out.
