Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 9/10/10

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!

Eye on Idioms – practice using idioms. Great for students who are learning the English language or special education students who have trouble with idioms.

Tripline – “Tripline is a great way to plan your trips ahead of time, and when you're back home, you can share your story with a single click.”

Nook Study – from Barnes and Noble; “free software that you download to your computer to help you study smarter, not harder”; 500,000 free ebooks

History Pin – “Historypin is a online tool that acts as a digital time machine, allowing people to view and share history in a totally new way. Using Google Maps and Street View technology, Historypin aims to become the largest user-generated archive of the world’s historical images and stories.”

Virtual Cockroach - is a web resource focused on insect anatomy by Orkin.
