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!
Patrimonium-mundi.org – 360 degree panoramic views of sites around the world; “Click on the picture to visit 275 great sites from all over the world ! Discover wonders as if you were really there.”
Internet Safety Quiz – cute game for young children about internet safety
Google Map Maker – “lets you add to and update the map, for millions of people to see in Google Maps and Google Earth. You can add your local knowledge for over 180 countries and regions. Get started mapping the places you know.”
Present.me – “is simply the easiest way to record and share your presentation. With Present.Me you just upload your slides, click record, present into your webcam and then publish instantly on the web.”
Explore.org – “The lesson plans accompanying explore’s films are written for use in the K – 12 classroom and are connected to grade level national standards. Background information about the non-profit organizations is provided along with questions for guided discussion about the films. The questions are intended for students to connect to the people and issues profiled by exploring and developing their own viewpoints and opinions.”
