Almost a year ago, I wrote a post in which I reviewed the Flipboard app for mobile devices (available for iDevices, Android, Kindle, and Nook). I recently came across a great listing of feeds on “ToolZeit” that would be good to add to Flipboard for use in an educational setting. Even if you are not a Flipboard user, you might want to take a look at this collection, because they are accessible on the web and would be good resources for any teacher or parent who is searching for new ideas. There were several suggestions on this list, such as Kinooze and Tinkerlab, which were new to me. Many of them are sites with current events written in “kid-friendly” form, or sites that give ideas for projects. On Tinkerlab, I found a great new project that I hope to try with my 1st graders during our Japan unit. I could probably write a separate post on each of the sites recommended, but I will let you explore them on your own!
