I have a huge backlog of resources that I’ve been planning to post about in this blog but, just because of time constraints, have not gotten around to doing. Instead of letting that backlog grow bigger, I regularly grab a few and list them here with a minimal description. It forces me to look through these older links, and help me organize them for my own use. I hope others will find them helpful, too. These are resources that I didn’t include in my “Best Tweets” feature because I had planned to post about them, or because I didn’t even get around to sending a tweet sharing them.
Here are This Week’s “Links I Should Have Posted About, But Didn’t”:
Here’s a nice short video from ASCD on formative assessment. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Formative Assessment:
Are Your Assessments Good, Not So Good, or…Great? is another short post I’m adding to the same “The Best…” list.
Alphabetimals is a fun site where the alphabet is shown, and heard, through the names and pictures of animals. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The Alphabet. Thanks to Michelle Henry for the tip.
50 of the World’s Best Breakfasts offers great pictures and descriptions of breakfasts from around the world. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures. Thanks again to Michelle Henry for the tip.
Whether Humble or Glorious: Telling Stories of Human History Through Objects is a very nice lesson plan from The New York Times Learning Network. I’m adding it to The Best Digital Storytelling Resources.
Word clouds considered harmful is an interesting post from the Nieman Journalism Lab. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About “Word Clouds.”
