Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 8/12/11

tools2Here 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!

Quicklyst – taking simple notes digitally

QR Treasure Hunt Generator- “Get students using their mobile devices to move and to learn”

Word Strips – “Word Strips is a fun, interactive Word Puzzle from Road To Grammar. Very suitable for ESL learners. Enjoy.”

WordsLike.Net – “is a free service that allows you to find words and phrases that are similar or related to each other. Type in a word or a phrase and Words will come up with a list of related words and their corresponding definitions.”

One Day On Earth – “On October 10, 2010 (10.10.10), across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and inspired citizens recorded the human experience over a 24-hour period and contributed their voice to the largest participatory media event in history. Founded in 2008, ONE DAY ON EARTH is creating an online community, shared archive, and film. Together, we are showcasing the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occur in one day. We invite you to join our international community of thousands of filmmakers, hundreds of schools, and dozens of non-profits, and contribute to this unique global mosaic. One Day on Earth is a community that not only watches, but participates.”
