Glad To See This Blog is Being Used and Appreciated!

I heard through the grapevine that my blog was creeping around the world and being noticed... I was stunned, actually, as this blog was something I had made for a college project and thought it might be useful, not knowing it would spread the way that it has. Pretty funny, but also pretty humbling! I'm glad that my work is being used and appreciated!

Check out this awesome blog! I came across this blog by accident, actually, as the owner had posted THIS blog on her blog! I started looking around her blog and it has some incredible things that I had not seen yet. You should definitely check out Teachers LOVE SMART Boards!

I thought this was so cool, and then I found ANOTHER fan of my site... Now I'm a fan of their blog as well! Check out Expat Educator in Asia! Awesome ideas and resources are here as well!

I attended the ITSC 2008 Conference in Portland this weekend and learned TOO MUCH (a good thing in this case)... Here are some sites that I learned about that you can explore and use... If you have questions about any of these resources, feel free to drop me an email.

Kathy Schrock presented about a plethora of online tools for teachers. She has an amazing website that has a list of resources for teachers and students. Click here to see her ITSC site. Scroll down to Web 2.0 resources.

I also attended Jennifer Gingrich's presentation on movie making/story telling. Click here to see her blog, which is chalked full of resources and ideas/examples.

Eva Lamar, another presenter I learned from at the conference, has a website that has ideas and resources. Click here to view it.

6-12 Interactive Math Resources!

Tucson Unified School District in Arizona provides this AMAZING resource for 6-12 students, as well as elementary (provided on the elementary page), for interactive math websites that can be used on SMART Boards. Take time to explore all this website has to offer and find some new favorites! This website is labeled as "Tucson AZ Interactive Math", under General Resources. Enjoy!

FINALLY! Literacy Websites for High Schoolers!

YOU MUST CHECK OUT THIS LITERACY WEBSITE! It has fabulous resources on a plethora of topics for 9th-12th grade students that are already, or can be modified to be an interactive resource on a SMART Board. I created a link to this site under High School Resources as "High School Literacy". The website includes topics such as Shakespeare, biographies, encyclopedias, Dickens, journalism, and speeches. Check it out!

Ancient World Interactive Activities

The interactive activities keep a-rollin'! Enjoy some of the additional resources I have added under the general resources on the Ancient World from Ballard and Tighe. The activities range from Prehistoric times, to Ancient India, Ancient China, and Ancient Rome. Enjoy!
