Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 4/9/21`

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!

Note: Each resource is labeled with a level and subject area to make it easier to use.

Levels: E: Elementary; M: Middle; H: High; G: General, all levels; SN: Special Needs; T: Teachers

Subject Areas: LA: Language Arts, English, Reading, Writing; M: Math; S: Science; Health; SS: Social Studies, Current Events; FA: Fine Arts; Music, Art, Drama; FL: Foreign Language; PE: Physical Ed; C: Career; A: All

Blob Opera - “Create your own opera inspired song with Blob Opera - no music skills required ! A machine learning experiment by David Li in collaboration with Google Arts & Culture” (L:G;SA:A)

ThreadIt - “Short video recordings to share work, connect your team, and get your day back” (L:T;SA:A)

Connect Fours - You get 16 clues and have to put them into groups of 4. You can edit the template and put your own key words in. Great review for students. (L:T;SA:A)

Virtual Accommodations In Co-Taught Virtual Classrooms - “Tips on what a teacher can do while their coteacher is leading a virtual lesson” (L:T;SA:A)

Edji - “Annotate anything together. Whether its a PDF, image, web article, or GIF—annotation is better live and together. Edji works great in Science, Social Studies, and any content area, to shift the focus from "how to annotate" back to the material you are teaching. Use the content you already have, and use Edji to make it a collaborative, engaging experience while you get live data. (L:T;SA:A)
