LET’S LEARN SOMETHING NEW THIS SUMMER!

June 10, 2011

So summer is here and for us teachers, time to recharge those batteries, be the learner for a change and look to bring something new into next year. I know technology integration is high on your list (c’me on, you know it is) and you are wondering what are some good how-to places to go on the web to get down some basics! I’ve collected some here and I hope that these will help to spark new ideas into your teaching next year!

Don’t think you need to incorporate anything new? Start here:http://whatedsaid.wordpress.com/2011/06/05/10-questions-to-ask-yourself/ Staggering numbers … http://goo.gl/wZk6w

Want more? Good. Here is a listing of videos made to spark educators thinking: http://bigthink.com/ideas/30689

Speaking of videos, Common Craft specializes in 3 minute explanation videos: http://www.commoncraft.com/ The animation is really interesting to look at as well.

Wolfram Alpha is a data search site that you can do so many things with. Here is an introduction to it:http://www.wolframalpha.com/screencast/introducingwolframalpha.html Try searching for your name, that’s my favorite!

If you teach geography or do anything with maps, here’s a step by step tour a great Google Earth feature, creating a tour: http://www.googletouring.com/create.php Also check out http://goo.gl/A1TuWhich will also show you some unknown Google Map features.

Great list of websites that can be used to integrate tech into your classroom: http://goo.gl/WPgoyWhy bother? Here’s why: http://goo.gl/ZZQlp
