Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 9/9/11

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!

Classwish – “a nonprofit site where parents, teachers and communities easily unite to provide the classroom resources our children need.”

ILoveSchools – “ is a nonprofit online donation center that connects new, used and in-kind resources with our nation’s schools all year long.”

Grant Gopher – available grants for nonprofits

Lazy Meter – free, task manager; “Procrastination has many causes. Part of the problem is being overwhelmed by a long to-do list, not being able to recall the right things to do at the right time, and not feeling a sense of reward when work is done. LazyMeter is flipping procrastination on its head, creating an experience that makes users want to get through their day, so that they can feel good and move onto quality free time.  LazyMeter helps users focus on one day at a time.  We give users credit for making progress on a big task, and we make it easy to reschedule things for later.”

Online Graphing Calculator – free
