Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 7/23/10

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!

Thanks for the roller coast link!:) Really slick! I can see how this would be a fun teaching tool! I was able to build a coaster and made it through the lop0p on my second attempt (used default setting the first time around.)
