Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 5/1/09

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!

Papervision 3D – really no educational value other than it really looks cool. It feels like you are inside an giant aquarium. Move your mouse around you.

Weboword – visual vocabulary search

Planets – great visuals to better understand the planets.

Essay Map - a mapping tool to help students write an informational essay.

My Ebook – “myebook aims to revolutionise the way we create, publish and share ebook content online. Built on a feature-rich social platform, complete with powerful, browser-based, builder software, and a slick reader environment, there's never been an easier way for anyone and everyone to 'get it out there'.”

Hi Pat

Thanks so much for mentioning WeboWord on your blog! :) It is our privilege to be noticed and recognized by you.

Would love to take this opportunity to inform you as well as your blog readers about, which is WeboWord's Ning network where everyone - teachers, parents and students can create, collaborate and share their own visual vocabulary!

Hope you find it valuable.

Thanks and warm regards,
