Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 4/15/11

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!

Manga High – free, math games and teachers who register there classes can monitor statistics of their students progress

Flubaroo – uses google docs and is “ a free tool that helps you quickly grade multiple-choice or fill-in-blank assignments.” It also “Computes average assignment score. Computes average score per question, and flags low-scoring questions. Shows you a grade distribution graph. Gives you the option to email each student their grade, and an answer key.”

Comic Builder – at Lego City; build your own comic strip by dragging and dropping.

Learn A Language – “hundreds of free language-learning lessons, games, and activities.”

Music Games and Quizzes – from Music Tech Teacher’s site; “play over 130 elementary quizzes, puzzles and games about music. Music Information and Theory pages below will help you learn the names of music notes, rhythms, terms and the names of famous musicianand composers.”
