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”:
New Assessments for the Common Core State Standards has the latest information (April, 2012) for the upcoming “next generation” standardized assessments. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The “Next Generation” Of State Testing.
Antarctica’s Emperor Penguins is a slideshow from The Wall Street Journal. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Penguins.
The Secret to Dynamic Presentations is from Leadership Freak.
How to Present like Steve Jobs is from Kiss Metrics.
I’m adding both of those links to The Best Sources Of Advice For Making Good Presentations.
Panda Preschool is a video from The Smithsonian Channel. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Pandas.
The Muppets Guide to Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a great post from Michael Milton. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Cooperative Learning Ideas.
Why Storytellers Lie is from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Digital Storytelling Resources.
Here are some other regular features I post in this blog:
