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

tools2 Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my 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!

Snappy Words – free visual online dictionary

Teaching the Civil War with Technology – blog with great ideas! Great links to other resources

Remind Post – “a simple, free service to let you send tasks to people, and be notified when they're done.”

Student Cam 2011 – “is an annual national video documentary competition that encourages students to think seriously about issues that affect our communities and our nation. Students are asked to create a short (5-8 minute) video documentary on a topic related to the competition theme listed below.”; grades 6-12

ActivityTV – “Find lots of fun activities for kids, with video instructions and printables. Crafts, Magic, Puppets, Science, and more!”
