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”:
Israel & Palestinians: Neighbors in conflict is an Associated Press interactive. I’m adding it to The “Best” Resources For Learning About The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.
Where Are They Now?: 7 Protest Songs With Legs is from NPR. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Protests In History.
World Food Day: Addressing Hunger Around the Globe is from The New York Times Learning Network. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About World Food Day.
Global Hunger Index is an interactive map I’m adding to the same “The Best…” list.
Video: Meet Kong And Wu, The Ping Pong Playing Robots From China is a video and article. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Robots.
Liberty Mutual has a number of interactives related to teen driving. I’m adding them to The Best Online Resources For Drivers Education & Car Information.
Famous Quotes That Were Never Said is a LIFE slideshow. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Find Quotations On The Web.
