In the mean time, here are three great ed resources that you can utilize in your classroom(s). As always, I will be adding these to my lists of resources under the Fav Websites heading.
1 ) New Old Stock: Vintage Photographs
- Curated by Cole Townsend, this website features vintage photographs
that are public domain and not licensed under any copyright restrictions.
- This is a great image option to share with your students when they are
looking for images to use for projects!
- The one thing I do not like is that there is no search options or categories
and users simply have to scroll through the pages of photographs to find
what they are looking for.
2 ) How To Add Live Web Pages to PowerPoint Presentations
- This tutorial shows someone, step-by-step, how to add in a live web
page into a PowerPoint presentation. When giving presentations about
ed resources I find that I am jumping back and forth between the internet
browser and my presentation.
- This tutorial taught me how to embed a website directly into the presentation
so I don't have to flip back and forth anymore! This is really handy as I am
teaching my students how to use Blogger this year and would like to have
the web page inside of my presentation.
* Thanks to Tyler for sharing this resource with me!
3 ) ICT Magic's PLN Map
- This interactive map allows users to visualize the Twitter PLN. Educators
can add their work location and teaching category (primary, secondary,
resource, etc) to the map at any time!
- This is a neat project to show how information travels around the world
(this project started with a simple Tweet) and to show how big the Twitter
PLN actually is.
- Add yourself to this map by following the link :)
Happy Monday everyone!
