Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/26/10

tools2Here 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!

Fatworld – “is a video game about the politics of nutrition. It explores the relationships between obesity, nutrition, and socioeconomics in the contemporary U.S. The game's goal is not to tell people what to eat or how to exercise, but to demonstrate the complex, interwoven relationships between nutrition and factors like budgets, the physical world, subsidies, and regulations;” it has to be downloaded in order to play it.

Vocabsushi – “for anyone looking to learn vocabulary and have fun doing it. It is ideal for students studying for standardized tests, and is also perfect for anyone looking to expand his or her vocabulary to communicate more precisely.”

Encyclomedia – “is a free video encyclopedia that covers everything you need to know or want to learn. If your passion is entertainment, fitness, health, history, nature, people, science, spirituality, religion, or travel - free video encyclopedia provides the access you need.”

The Super Hero Squad Show – create your own super hero comic strips and comic books.

Speechable –“is a free photo service that lets you easily upload and add speech bubbles to your photos”

Thanks for the links, and as usual, they're helpful.

I tried the one out right away, and even put a couple on my blog. I think it would help make digital presentations at the end of the school year much more fun and meaningful.

Again, thank you.
