Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 12/28/18

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!

Zero Noise Classroom – “The free noise level display and stopwatch for the cooperative classroom. It helps students be aware of the noise level in the classroom during cooperative learning activities, and moderate it accordingly. When time is over, the percentage of time that the noise level has exceeded the optimal level is displayed, so the teacher can use that value in gamification techniques.” (L:G;SA:A)
