Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 8/7/09

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!

The Math Teacher’s Toolkit – “a compilation of macromedia flash resources to support whole class teaching and learning in the primary school.”

Elearning for kids – “is a global, nonprofit foundation dedicated to fun and free learning on the Internet for children ages 5 - 12. We offer free, best-in-class courseware in math, science, reading and keyboarding; and we’re building a community for parents and educators to share innovations and insights in childhood education.”

Spinner – 8 option spinner to use in the classroom.

CAST UDL Book Builder – “Use this site to create, read, and share engaging digital books that build reading skills for students. Your universally designed books will engage and support diverse learners according to their individual needs, interests, and skills.” (Thanks to Faye Valbert for bringing this to my attention!)

GeoNet – great geography game, lots of quiz questions using graphs and charts
