Although it’s been a while since I’ve posted on THIS blog, I’ve been a busy girl. I am always amazed at all of the new tech resources I discover every day. This morning I’ve discovered/re-visited 3 fantastic resources:
TEFL Clips calling itself “a site dedicated to the possibilities for YouTube and other video sharing sites in the classroom. Every week a new lesson plan will be uploaded” this site is informative and insightful. There is a great description of how to load youtube videos to itunes so you can use them in the classroom (where youtube is strictly verboten). The lessons are useful and clever and include a lesson plan, student worksheets and video clip information. This is definitely a site to be bookmarked and returned to over and over.
Ed Galaxy, A Cool Site for Nerdy Teachers speaks my language. His MindMap is a wonderful example how to put fascinating tool to good use. I found the TEFL site from here. Check out the “Top Posts” section. There are great ideas and tools for genuine technology integration. So much to explore!
Kim Cofino offers a presentation called “Hardware is not Enough” which describes how a Technology Coach and a classroom teacher can create genuine integration of technology in the classroom.
What a wonderful way to spend a rainy Sunday morning! It’s been a very enlightening couple of hours. I’m very thankful to be able to advantage of everything these wonderful techies have to offer.
