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!
Internet Safety with Professor Garfield – helps students protect themselves online
What Was There – “The premise is simple: provide a platform where anyone can easily upload a photograph with two straightforward tags to provide context: Location and Year. If enough people upload enough photographs in enough places, together we will weave together a photographic history of the world (or at least any place covered by Google Maps). So wherever you are in the world, take a moment to upload a photograph and contribute to history!”
Meet Me At Midnight – “an interactive adventure set in the Smithsonian American Art Museum (American Art). Our goal is to introduce youngsters to American art and artists using examples from our collection. We also aim to teach art terms and concepts in a fun, game-based setting. We hope this Web site will encourage you to take children to the Smithsonian American Art Museum—or to an art museum in your hometown.”
