Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 3/11/11

tools1Here 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!

Knoword – vocabulary game;

Plagiarisma.Net – “Free Online Plagiarism Checker and Duplicate Content Finder”

My Fake Wall – “With you can easily create fake profile pages just for fun. This fake facebook wall generator allows you to create a funny profile to entertain your friends. Create it, and share it on Facebook!”

Quicklyst – “free notetaking program; “Take your notes with you on an Amazon Kindle, Android, iPhone, smartphone, or tablet device.”

Webonauts Internet Academy – “Webonauts Internet Academy is a web original game for PBS KIDS GO! that gives kids 8- to 10-year-old an opportunity to have some fun while exploring what it means to be a citizen in a web-infused‚ information-rich world. It is an engaging experience on its own but becomes all the more powerful when parents and teachers use game play as a springboard for conversations about media literacy and citizenship in the 21st Century.”
