Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 01/16/09

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Grammar Ninja (Thanks to Chris Prout) – fun grammar game

Mapness – “A place to share your travel experience. Your online travel journal. Show on the map where you’ve been and what you saw.”

Go To Freebie – “makes it easy to find and share the hottest freebies, free stuff and free samples. GotoFreebie offers useful and quality free samples and giveaways on everything from baby and healthcare products to games and music.”

Study Stack – “Find data to study or add your own data. Study and play with data online as flashcards, hangman game, crossword puzzle, matching, word search, or word scramble. Study anytime/anywhere by printing data or exporting flash cards to your cell phone, PDA, or iPod.”

Johnny Money Online Game – “is a FREE Internet-based small business simulation game that engages students as they explore the risks and rewards of business ownership.”

Love the Mapness site.

I am going to pass this link to my parents - they sold their house and are traveling in a 5th wheel camper full time (early retirement)all over the country.

This would be a great way for my Dad to keep other informed of their journey (he's also making a video of their 1st year).

M-Dawg: I thought the same thing because I like to travel so much.
