Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 7/2/10

tools1 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!

Word Steps –“ is a place for people to learn foreign words and keep their vocabularies in fit condition. Here you can not only enrich your vocabulary, but you can also track your progress and recall the words you could forget.”

Fit Brains – “Fit Brains games offer a variety of well-rounded, scientifically based activities wrapped within a fun and engaging experience that is accessible even to first-time players. By offering stimulation across the spectrum of the brain, and ramping the difficulty in a way that increases the complexity of the tasks over time, brain games can offer people an effective means of brain exercise.”

Verbs Online – learn verbs in different languages

Story Place - is “an interactive web site, came about to provide children with the virtual experience of going to the library and participating in the same types of activities the library offers.”

Vocabulix - Improve your vocabulary skills in foreign languages, online and free!
