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”:
San Francisco’s Famed Coit Tower Murals in Peril Due to Fog, Neglect is a video and slideshow from the PBS News Hour. For the Depression-era Murals of Coit Tower, Great Recession-era Neglect is also from the News Hour. I’m adding them to The Best Sites To Learn About San Francisco.
Broken Co-Worker is an interesting “Choose Your Own Adventure” game where players are in the role of a bullied worker. It appears to be classroom appropriate, but I did not explore all the alternatives available. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories.
Olympic Preparations for London 2012 is a photo gallery from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The London 2012 Olympics.
The E-Reader of 1935 is a fun illustration from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The History Of Technology.
‘The oldest work of art ever': 42,000-year-old paintings of seals found in Spanish cave is from The Mail Online. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Prehistoric Cave Paintings.
Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy Wheel is a very cool interactive, but it also seems a bit strange to me. I’m just not sure how helpful people will find it. I’m still adding it to The Best Resources For Helping Teachers Use Bloom’s Taxonomy In The Classroom.
What Is Modern Slavery? Investigating Human Trafficking is from The New York Times Learning Network. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Human Trafficking Today.
Visuals Are Valuable is an intriguing infographic.
