Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 12/24/10

tools2Here 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!

Crayola Drawing – draw pictures online with crayola crayons

Cacoo – “is an online drawing tool that makes real-time collaboration a reality.”

DataMasher – “The Federal Government produces an immeasurable amount of data each day. DataMasher helps citizens have a little fun with those data by creating mashups to visualize them in different ways and see how states compare on important issues. Users can combine different data sets in interesting ways and create their own custom rankings of the states.”

Wylio – free creative commons pictures

Tours from Above – “panoramic aerial photography worldwide”
