Hate those long URL's? Fun Tip:

Go to http://www.tinyurl.com/ and paste the BIG BAD URL and the generator will provide a shorter address for you to use in emails and for students to access.

This is an example from Tiny URL retrived April 1, 2011:

Turn this URL:

http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-Wireless-Reading-Display-Globa lly/dp/B003FSUDM4/ref=amb_link_353259562_2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIK X0DER&pf_rd_s=center-10&pf_rd_r=11EYKTN682A79T370AM3&pf_rd_ t=201&pf_rd_p=1270985982&pf_rd_i=B002Y27P3M
into this TinyURL:

Thanks for all the great resources that will help to make us better communicators. I am beginning to believe that I have been living in a cave to have missed all these tools before now.
