Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/12/10

tools1Here 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!

Own Your Space – “Help teens ‘own their space’ online. Whether you are a parent, caregiver, or educator, you can keep up with the latest computer and online safety issues and help kids learn to avoid them. In partnership with security expert and author, Linda McCarthy, we offer a free downloadable version of her new book, “Own Your Space – Keep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe Online.” Written for Internet savvy “tweens” and teens specifically, this book is also a useful resource for the adults they rely on.”

Mapeas – News stories on a world map. The smaller the dot, the older the news. Includes news stories about entertainment, business, sports, science, and general.

Bubbabrain – review games to study for SAT and AP Exams

Snag Learning – great educational videos; some have lesson plans and some have discussion questions

YTTM ­ ­- You Tube Time Machine; lets you search for videos according to year and genre
