Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 1/29/10

tool1 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!

CarrotSticks – “CarrotSticks is an online multiplayer game that improves math skills for 1st - 5th graders as they practice and compete with peers around the world!”

Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit
from a lot of the information you provide here.

Please let me know if this ok with you. Thank you!
