Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 1/7/10

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!

The Science of Football – “NBC Learn,  in partnership with the National Science Foundation and National Football League,  unravels the science behind professional football.  For lesson plans and activities,  visit Lessonopoly.”

A Home for the Future – tour a virtual solar powered home

US National Parks – found on fotopedia (a collaborative photo encyclopedia) showing photos of national parks.

Guardian 2010 Year in Review – Pictures of events in 2010; there is a link here for you to build your own year in review.

Data Store – “Data journalism has become an increasingly big part of our work here at the Guardian - from Wikileaks to government spending, it's our job to make the key data accessible and easy to understand”
