Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 3/19/10

tools2 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!

Time for Time – Resource for teaching students how to tell time.

Puzzles – These puzzles can be played online or downloaded.

Zimmer Twins – “is a fun way to incorporate technology into the classroom. Watch your students expand their vocabulary, practice proper writing habits, and become junior movie producers all at the same time!” There are even lesson plans included.

NASA eclips – “NASA eClips™ are short, relevant educational video segments. These videos inspire and engage students, helping them see real world connections.”

Neat Chat – adfree chat room that can be used for a backchannel in the classroom.
