Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 2/4/11

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!

Khan Academy – self paced lessons, “We are complementing Salman's ever-growing library with user-paced exercises--developed as an open source project--allowing the Khan Academy to become the free classroom for the World.”

Smories – “are original stories for kids, read by kids”

Webcams.Travel – live webcams of places around the world

What is a Stock? – by; great infographic

Architect Studio 3D – “you can design a house, walk through it in 3D, and then share it with the world. You can also learn more about architecture, past and present, and explore Frank Lloyd Wright's life and work.”
