Webby Award Nominees Announced This Morning – Here Are Six Best Sites For Learning

webbywebby

Nominees for the twentieth annual were announced this morning (go here and click on “view all categories to see them). I think you have to kiss a lot of pigs before you find the princes, but there are a few excellent learning resources there that I haven’t already shared.

Here they are:

Ice and Sky is an interactive describing the history of climate change. It’s a good complement to A Journey Through Climate History, a site I’ve previously shared.  I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Learn About Climate Change.

Google Feud and PhotoBomber would be fun games to play with English Language Learners.  In the first one, which is a Webby nominee, you’re given a phrase and have to guess the ten most likely words to complete it in a Google search.  The downside, however, is that it’s possible you might end up with something inappropriate.  The second one is a sister site, though did not actually receive a nomination.  It would work for advanced ELLs – you’re given a combination of pictures and words and have to guess the common expression it represents.

Apollo 17 is a multimedia interactive letting you experience – in real time – that moon-landing mission.

Mawahtale is an interactive on Ebola.  I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Ebola Virus.

The Studio from Giphy lets you easily create GIFs and animated slideshows. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On GIFs — Please Contribute More, which I just updated.

Check out the nominees and let me know if you think I missed any!

There has been some criticism of the federal government’s Community Eligibility Provision Expansion Project (CEPEP), which lets schools with large numbers of free-or-reduced meal eligible students to provide them to everyone who attends.

One of those critiques has been suggesting that it can increase obesity.

Uh, no…

2 Breakfasts May Be Better Than None For School Kids is an NPR segment that discusses those critiques and reports on new research finding the exact opposite results occur:

Researchers-tracked

Infographic: “U.S. Health Care vs. The World [2016]”

A few years ago I published the 2013 version of this infographic at The Best Online Resources For Learning About Health Care Reform.

Here’s the 2016 version. It might be a useful learning activity to compare the two…
