Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 7/8/11

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!

ManyBooks – free ebooks

Animaps – “extends the My Maps feature of Google Maps by letting you create maps with markers that move, images and text that pop up on cue, and lines and shapes that change over time. When you send your Animap to friends it appears like a video - they can play, pause, slow and speed up the action!”

Monkey Machine – “is a free online drum machine for creating drum loops and providing rhythmic accompaniment for musicians.”

Weaving History – “Create 'factlets' — places, people, events — and string them together into 'threads' at the click of a button. Automatically visualize the results temporally and spatially, search by any attribute, automatically import Wikipedia articles and much more ...”

Your Special Chef – “is a collection of resources to help teach cooking skills to individuals with special needs. Click around the site to find cue-card recipes, lesson plans for life skills teachers, video tips, and more! Check back soon for a personalized recipe creator.”
