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”:
GE Teach looks like a great tool for teachers using Google Earth. You can read more about it at Richard Byrne’s blog. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Google Earth Beginners Like Me.
The Very First App You Should Load on Your New iPad is from Jeffrey Thomas. I’m adding it to that list, too.
And if you’re considering using iPads in the classroom, Redefining Instruction With Technology: Five Essential Steps by Jennie Magiera is a must read. That’s going on the the same list.
States Anticipate Technology Challenges With Common Tests is from Ed Week. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The “Next Generation” Of State Testing.
An animated journey through the Earth’s climate history is from The BBC. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Climate Change.
NASA Visualization Shows Global Temperature Changes (VIDEO) is from The Huffington Post. I’m adding it to the same list.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
“The Best…” series (which now number 835)
The most popular posts on this blog each month
My monthly choices for the best posts on this blog each month
Each month I do an “Interview Of The Month” with a leader in education
Periodically, I post “A Look Back” highlighting older posts that I think are particularly useful
Resources that share various “most popular” lists useful to teachers
