10 Great Websites
These 10 (or more) websites were compiled by Pam Leland, Instructional Technology Specialist, Beaverton School District.
I am taking the liberty of posting them to my website and eventually adding to her list. I've also added a short description to each. Quotes and italics indicate that I've taken the description from the website.
Educational Tools and Websites:
"4Teachers.org works to help you integrate technology into your classroom by offering FREE online tools and resources. This site helps teachers locate and create ready-to-use Web lessons, quizzes, rubrics and classroom calendars. There are also tools for student use. Discover valuable professional development resources addressing issues such as equity, ELL, technology planning, and at-risk or special-needs students."
PBS has always provided quality instructional material for classrooms. Their website is worth a visit.
"PBS Teachers is PBS' national web destination for high-quality preK-12 educational resources. Here you'll find classroom materials suitable for a wide range of subjects and grade levels. We provide thousands of lesson plans, teaching activities, on-demand video assets, and interactive games and simulations. These resources are correlated to state and national educational standards and are tied to PBS' award-winning on-air and online programming like NOVA, Nature, Cyberchase, Between the Lions and more."
