Three years ago, in another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I began this occasional “Ed Tech Digest” post where I share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech:
Instant Virtual Field Trips is from Ditch That Textbook. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Finding And Creating Virtual Field Trips (which I just revised and updated).
Two Programs Providing Internet Access to Low-income Homes is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Schools Providing Home Computers & Internet Access To Students.
How Silicon Valley Pushed Coding Into American Classrooms is from The New York Times.
Google Earth comes to the classroom with new educational tours and lesson plans comes from TechCrunch. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Google Earth Beginners Like Me.
Ten Ways to Use Google Earth In Your Classroom – Handout is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to the same list.
30 Hands Learning is yet another site that lets you create virtual classrooms and monitor the progress students are making in creating projects. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress. By the way, that list is now getting so lengthy that I think it will be the next topic of an “All-Time Best” list where I can narrow it down a bit.
ClassCraft also lets you create virtual classroom and supposedly turn learning into some sort of adventure game. I’m adding it to the same list.
