Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 9/18/09

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!

Online Projects for Teachers – connecting teachers for projects.

Projects by Jen – K6 online projects

History Animated – The Revolutionary War, Civil War, and Pacific War is animated. Really great addition to history lessons!

Amazon Free Books – free .pdf books

Legistalker – “was created by Forum One Communications as an entry for the Apps for America competition. The ever-growing database is updated every 20 seconds, and relies on data from Twitter, YouTube, Capitol Words, literally hundreds of different news sources, and others.” Just insert your legislator’s name and it will find lots of info about what they are saying.
