Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 03/27/09

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!

SlideMap - “explore the world through Flickr geotagged images”

Tenement Museum – From Ellis Island to Orchard Street. It lets students simulate immigrating to America. They fill out information for a passport and go through the different stages. They even get to see what an apartment was like.

American Experience Films – “featuring over 200 films. Watch full films online, download teacher’s guides, go behind the scenes, and learn more about your favorite films.”

Jeopardy Labs – “allows you to create a customized jeopardy template without PowerPoint. The games you make can be played online from anywhere in the world.”

The Elements – You can click on any element and get more information about it, as well as examples of how each element is used.
