Even MORE Resources

Suggestions by staff members of useful websites when working with technology integration:
 
  1. www.studystack.com can be used to create on-line flashcards.  For students who struggle with vocabulary, this is an excellent tool.  I not only used this in my classroom but shared the link with parents who worked with their child at home.  Stacks can also be saved to an Iphone so that a parent can review with a child anywhere.
  2. Cara Wolford's "Teaching with Students in Mind" wiki.
  3. Music Resources to Use in Presentations
  4. Wayback Machine - What happened to that webpage?  The Wayback machine archives older versions of websites....very helpful when you favorite website disappears!
  5. Intel - eLearning - online PD for Assessment, STEM, Thinking Tools, Project-Based Learning, and Digital Literacy
  6.  Royalty Free Media (collected courtesy of Mrs. Braswell)
