Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 7/24/09

Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my Personal Learning Network (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!

Guess the Wordle – “Each Monday, Wednesday, & Friday a new wordle will be posted for you and your students to view. Each wordle will have a TOPIC and you will need to use your deciphering skills to figure out exactly what that topic is. Then by using the Google form, you are invited to share what you think that topic is.”

OnlineProject4Teachers - join this ning and find other teachers who are interested in collaborating on an online project.

Gamequarium – great resource for decimal games

Playing History – “There are tons of free historical games, interactives and simulations on the web. Playing history aggregates info on these resources in a simple, searchable database making it easy to find, rate, and review historical games. There are currently 128 shared games.”

Worldometers – world statistics updated in real time

Thanks for the links, Pat. I'm a history teacher who'll be going back to school in a few weeks, so I'm starting to think about what I can do for next year.
