Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 4/2/10

tool1 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!

Energy Kids – from the US Energy Information Administration; includes lesson plans, teacher guides, games and lots of information

The Open Innovation Portal – by the Dept. of Education; “Contribute your ideas, Collaborate on solutions, Find partners and resources”

Certificate Street – used to be MyAwardMaker; templates for certificates of all kinds

Wise Mapping – free mind mapping tool

Creative Exercises – “This 36 pages free eBook is a collection of 17 practical exercises for artists.”

Headmagnet – “Headmagnet is a learning tool that helps you to memorize new facts quickly and maintain what you have learned. Headmagnet helps you to predict when you will forget things, so that you can review only what you need to. With Headmagnet, you can create your own lists of things to remember and learn them in a variety of modes which you can easily customize and create. In your study sessions, you can set the focus on learning new items, or reviewing old items.”
