I have a handful of interesting things for everyone to check out as the school year gets ready to start. Take a look around and see how these sites can help you in your class or at home.
Everything you have ever wanted to know about Google:
This is a site dedicated to all Google has to offer. Every different aspect of Google is explained and resources are provided on how to use them in your classroom. Google Earth, Google Docs and other Google toold are covered in detail. This page is worth a peek if you are looking to use more online tools in your classroom or for yourself.
Here are some quick tips for teachers interested in using blogs in the classroom this year.
Interactive sites for the SmartBoard:
Here are three interactive sites to use with the Smartboard. One allows young students to combine different colors to create new ones. Another is all about Viscosity and it allows students to perform virtual lab experiments. The last one allows students to create 3D Geometrical shapes. Take a look at these and see how they might fit in your class.
These are just a few of the sites I've uncovered over the summer. I hope you take a minute and look them over. Enjoy the last couple of weeks in Summer. I look forward to seeing many refreshed faces.
