Digital Literacy Day

Digital Literacy Day is February 1 so I thought this week we would focus on what I call mega links. These are links that will take you many different places or have many choices of things to do. Like a portal into cyberspace. These links will literally take you hours if you click on everything. You could get lost in cyberspace! Have fun! Lose yourself!

1. A Different Place-This is a different kind of site. It is for students, teachers and parents. It is a place to find differentiated instruction ideas. Have fun searching!

2. Ideas to Inspire-Think of this as a portal to what you need. This will help you drill down to what you want. This site has lots of ideas that you can use and adapt to your classroom.

3. 15+Pintrest boards Teachers should be following-If you aren’t a fan of pintrest yet, you may want to check this out to see what all the hoopla is about. Here are several Pintrest boards that many teachers follow. It’s a great way to get inspired or to share or steal ideas.

4. High Tech Book Reports-This is a wiki from a workshop I attended. There are many, many ways to have students prove they read a book then just a summary. Have them choose one of these. Choose Alternatives link and you will find the reports are separated into topics like plot, setting, and character analysis.

5. Interactive Math Sites– This link will transport you in to Mathland. Do you have a student who you can’t keep challenged? Give them this link and set them exploring.
Have them show you what they found and how you can use it in your class.

6. Bonus– Here is a link from a blog with Groundhog Day activities. I am told the blog owner has just updated the list from last year. Lots of stuff.

I hope you can find something you can use in this newsletter. If you do, please make a comment.
