Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 11/25/11

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!

Slide Shark – “app used to reliably and professionally show or view your PowerPoints on your iPad.”

Kids Health – “KidsHealth in the Classroom offers educators free health curriculum materials for all grades and subject areas. Each Teacher's Guide includes discussion questions, activities, and reproducible handouts and quizzes – all aligned to national health education standards.”

BBC: Day in Pictures - photos from around the world; great for current events discussions
