Organizing your Personal Start Pages

Today's assignment was to create a series of indexable tabs on your iGoogle, Netvibes and Pageflakes pages. Tabs help you organize your information feeds into user-friendly links. Tabs literally put your online knowledge base at your fingertips.

All students were asked to create four tabs. You may create more if you like, but all students must have a tab for the following subject areas: Web 2.0/Blogs, Photos/Video, Music/Entertainment, News

(Tabs created in iGoogle)

(Tabs created in Netvibes)

(Tabs created in Pageflakes)

You can easily drag and drop gadgets from one tabbed location to another and it is easy to change the names of your tabs.

Part two of today's assignment was to create an authentic hypertext document on your "home city" of Philadelphia. Please use Karl Fisch's Did You Know presentation as your guide. Create this hypertext document in Google Presentation (Google Docs) and use the Karl Fisch Did You Know syntax as your model for presenting your facts.
The document must be e-mailed to me no later than Monday, October 15, 2007.

See me right away if you have questions.

    An alternative start page to consider is at Odysen, It has free-formatting widgets, multiple pages, and social networking features.

    Here's an example page from Pennsylvania.

    There's also a blog available for feature updates and page examples at
