Kim's Resources and Links for April 9, 2012
They Don't Teach You This In School
No registration to view
To be part of the DISQUS will need an account
Started in 2009...not much content...hopefully will grow
No login required
Easy to use
Big "cute" factor (though you aren't suppose to say that when looking for good resources to use in education...)
Jog the Web
Create a slide show of websites
Register for an account
Jogs are easy to build, able to add comments
Create and share playlist
Filter out the useless stuff
Easy to navigate
Online activities or discussions
Web page says no need for student emails, but, tutorial says one is needed
Takes time to learn, but time well spent
Easy to follow tutorials
Recommended by Melodie Brewer from Dysart - that is enough endorsement for me!
Online Math practice and instruction
Aligned with Common Core Standards
Again, recommended by Melodie Brewer and that is good enough for me!
