I periodically post “most popular” lists of websites (and books) that I think educators might find useful. Of course, there are a number of ways to gauge “popularity.” I just view these lists as opportunities to check-out some new sites, and find it interesting to see which ones might be particularly “popular.”
I’ve made quite a few posts that fit into this category, and thought I’d highlight which ones I thought were the best and most useful for educators.
