Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 6/12/09

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my Personal Learning Network (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!

Learn to Be Healthy – “LearntobeHealthy.org is an online health science learning site designed to help educators and parents communicate important health concepts to students. The site contains comprehensive lesson plans, interactive games and activities, webquests and more. The goal of the site is to inspire students – and their families – to make healthy choices that will last a lifetime.”

25 Tools: A Toolbox for Learning Professionals 2009 - this is a slideshow sharing 25 tools and most are free.

Diffen – “Diffen is a free collection of comparisons that people all over the world help write and maintain.”
