Thing 21 - Pageflakes

I have created a personal start page at Jessica's Pageflake. To be honest, I didn't really spend a lot of time on this "Thing" because I have my own personal start up page through Google. Their version is called iGoogle. It does the same thing as Pageflakes, but it is not sharable. I like it for my personal use, because once you log into google you are logged into all of the aspects of google. So, if I log into my iGoogle page, I can then go to Blogger, GoogleDocs, etc. without having to log on again. For classroom use, I think Pageflakes is better, because it is sharable. Students are not good at typing accurately, especially when it comes to typing urls. I can't tell you how many times I have had to type urls into the address bar for students in the computer lab because thye have tried a million times and still didn't type it right. Also, when I was discovering the other pageflakes offered, I absolutely loved the idea of using one for an assignment. Here is a link to the example.


  1. Hmmm...I wonder if this is happening to anyone else? When I click on Jessica's links above I get my own Pageflake page. ???

  2. Yeah! I knew that pageflake wasn't quite right, but I can't figure out how to fix it.
