The April 2006 issue of Edutopia magazine featured a readers’ survey of valued websites. I couldn’t choose just one favorite—I regularly visit more than 40 sites, and I share them with my master’s degree students. They find them helpful, and I hope you will as well.
A smattering of odds and ends, some with my personal notes:
- Pencils Down!: How Decontextualized Standardized Testing Can Destroy Education (Information Today)
- Technology Integration (Edutopia) When effectively integrated into the curriculum, high-tech tools can enhance and extend the learning process, in often surprising ways.
- The Journal of Technology Education
- THE Journal
- Technology & Learning (software reviews)
- Multiple Intelligences Resources (Theatre in Motion)
- Multiple Intelligences: H. Gardner (The Theory into Practice Database)
- RubiStar A tool to help teachers who want to use rubrics but do not have the time to develop them from scratch.
- Discovery Education
- The Kathy Schrock Guide for Educators: Teacher Helpers -- Assessment and Rubric Information This collection of assessment rubrics may be helpful for you as you design your own.
- Television Goes to School: The Impact of Video on Student Learning in Formal Education (PDF) (Corporation for Public Broadcasting)
- The Center for Media Literacy
