Great Sites for Great Teachers

Collections of sites, technology integration activities abound. Here are a few that you may find helpful.

LiveBindersis a site that allows users to create a virtual binder of website resources on a particular topic.
The advantage for the rest of us is that we are able to view and use the resources as well. (http://livebinders.com/ )

The computer teacher at St. Martin in the Fields Episcopal School in Winnetka, California is one of the best sources you’ll ever find for using technology in your classroom. Her activities are creative, simple and very engaging. Activities are arranged by grade level, and be sure to to look at the “Previous Projects” links posted in the left hand column. If you surf around, you’ll find some wonderful examples of simple, collaborative projects she’s done with other schools.

Shari Galgano, the Technology Resource Teacher at Cesar Rodney Middle School has created a list of Elementary School Links, arranged by grade level, (grades 3-5) and then subject, that will provide ideas and suggestions for almost every activity.

Miss Ammons has prepared a wonderful webpage which, though mainly directed to grades K-5, has information that all teachers can use. I urge you to explore her sit.

Internet 4 Classrooms is a website dedicated to providing free, excellent online resources for teachers and students. It has everything from links to tutorials, and is a site definitely worth taking the time to explore.

Teach the Children Well is a well-designed and maintained. One of the things that I like about it is that the links are checked regularly to be sure they work.

Free Technology for Teachers is a website created by Richard Byrne which is a treasure. You can visit the site, or subscribe to a newsletter in a variety of formats (see the icons in the top right column) to get daily inspiration.

He also has a resource page that contains great information as well. Sadly, not all the links work, but most do, and they are really useful. Free Technology for Teachers Resource Page - http://freetech4teachers.pbworks.com/w/page/14904890/FrontPage

Enchanted Learning - While at first glance this might seem like a site for younger students, looking more closely may change your mind. Information is given in short concise fashion, and you can probably find something for most grades. while you can pay $20 to subscribe to the site, there's much available for free.

The Technology Resources page on the above site has some wonderful tutorials and lessons – and while some of the pages are rather dated, others have been updated this year and all still hold some very useful information.

J. Purcell of Danbury (CT) Public Schools has created a great “How to” page, especially useful to Mac Users. Most of the tutorials are adobe downloads, and they’re very well written and easy to follow. Explore the links at the top of the page for some other very useful information.
