Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 1/28/11

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!

The Differentiated Lesson Planner – “The Differentiated Lesson Planner will guide you through the process of designing differentiated, engaging lessons for your heterogeneous class. It helps you structure your lesson design around the three major components of differentiation: readiness level, student interest and learning style. Questions will spark your thinking about how these components apply to your content, process and product. By weaving connections to recommended lists you’ll develop creative, effective ideas for teaching anything!”

Snip Snit It You chose the part of a YouTube video that you want to share. Insert it in this site and you will get a new link to share just your favorite part.

Global Issues Interactive Guides – very fascinating and engaging about many different issues.

Future Me – write an email to yourself to be delivered in the future. This would be great for people working on goals or expectations or maybe a word of encouragement at difficult times to come.

eSkeletons – “provides an interactive environment in which to examine and learn about skeletal anatomy. The purpose of this site is to enable you to view the bones of both human and non-human primates and to gather information about them from our osteology database.”
