If you follow my blog or follow me on Twitter (@bigtechcoach in case you don’t!), or if you have ever attended one of my presentations then you likely have heard me wax poetic about Symbaloo. The visual bookmarking platform saved my life after Google killed iGoogle! Seriously, my Symbaloo webmix jumped in front of a speeding bus and Saved. My. Life!
Ok, Ok, maybe that is a stretch, but I truly don’t know what I would do without Symbaloo. My home webmix is as large as the platform allows. Just take a look!
I estimate that 80% of the sites I visit on any given day are just one click away because I have them on this wonderfully crowded webmix.
I love Symbaloo so much and was using it so frequently to create organized collections of links for the classes I teach and the presentations I share that I decided to take part in the Symbaloo Certified Teacher program and eventually became a Symbaloo PD Pro. When I completed the Certified Teacher program I had to pony up ten bucks for the privilege. I didn’t mind, however, because certified teachers gain access to exclusive opportunities like free swag to give out at your presentations.
They still require that small administrative cost. Except when very cool sponsors step up. I received an email today from the team over at Spiral. Apparently, Spiral and Symbaloo have formed a partnership (read about it here) and to celebrate, the folks at Spiral are going to cover the cost of Symbaloo Certification for you!
Here are the details:
