Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 2/12/10

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!

Wild Music – from Free Technology for Teachers, Rob Byrne says, “is a fun and educational website on which students can learn about sounds commonly heard in nature.”

MathTV – math tutorials that are free

Database of Award Winning Literature - DAWCL has over 7,000 records from 84 awards across six English-speaking countries (United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, and Ireland). Click the link Explanation of Awards above to see a list of awards, their countries, and a brief explanation. Each book is indexed to some degree so users can find it using the form search or the keyword search. As I read a book, I index it more fully. Naturally, DAWCL is always a work in progress, so results will change with the addition of new awards, award-winners, and my reading/indexing habits. See the Developments Log for more detail.

Museum of Online Museums – Interesting collection of museums

AudioOwl – “Your source for free audio books. Download one in mp3, iPod and iTunes format today!

Thank you for the great ideas. As teachers we are always looking into new ways to motivate and teach our students.
Ravelymic event sounds like a lot of fun, you have the option to pick a project and challenge eachother.
I like the fact the they are able to pick different project that would
involves different techniques/skills
The most important rule of this event is to challenge yourself!
To me this is showing them somethign that they could apply to the real life and teaching them to strive to do there best.
Thanks again for the great idea.
