Resources to Start Off Your Week 17: Best Resources to Find Resources!

     As I updated my Fav Websites page and organized all those wonderful resources I began to think of all of the places where I have found these resources. I often find great websites for ed just by browsing through teacher's blogs and seeing what they use but I have also found some great websites dedicated to finding ed resources. There are definitely some very committed people out there that are AMAZING at finding ed resources, I don't know how they do it! Here are some of the ones I check out daily:
* Pictures have been taken off the public blog profiles

1 ) Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day
- Larry Ferlazzo is AMAZING! I found his website by chance and have since been
  pushing it on every teacher and student teacher I know. Not only does he blog
  regularly on a variety of educational topics but he is continuously finding great
  resources to be used in the classroom.
- His "Best of" series can be found through his blog and archives lists of thousands of
  the "Best of" ed resources. Teachers can find anything they may need if they are
  teaching any subject or interested in learning more on professional development,
  classroom management or any other ed topic.
- Great job Larry, thank you!

2 ) Educational Technology Guy
- David Andrade's blog, Educational Technology Guy, is great for finding
  the best new tech resources for the classroom. David often posts many times
  a day and not only has some great online resources but invaluable information
  on how to use them and how to troubleshoot them!
- You can scroll through the posts themselves or explore through any of the tabs
  David's included at the top of the blog to organize his resources.
- Definitely a blog to add to your Google Reader!

3 ) ICT Magic Wiki
- ICT Wiki is one of the biggest ed resources Wiki that I have been able to
  find. It has countless resources that can be used by teachers or students and
  it is my one-stop shop if I am looking for last minute resources to use during
  a lesson!
- Tabs at the side of this Wiki allow users to scroll through resources
   by specific subjects (math, english, etc) or by use (animations, images, etc).
- This is a very visually busy Wiki and it can be easy to miss information but there
   are GREAT resources summarized through this Wiki if you take the time to look.
