77 Web Resources for Teachers to Try this Summer is a web booklet created by Richard Byrne of Free Tech 4 Teachers. If you have not had time to check out his blog during the school year, this is a nice sampling of some of the great resources that he offers daily. You may have heard of Google Earth already, but have you heard of Google Body Browser? Or, how about Classics for Kids, which offers lesson plans for teaching about classical music? The summer is a great time to explore these sites, and to think about their applications for the classroom.
Many schools are out for the next two weeks, which gives teachers the opportunity to catch up on their personal lives. Sometimes, though, teachers like to use this time for planning.
In case you have any time over the next couple of weeks to explore some other blogs, these three have been my favorite “go-to” blogs for finding new technology resources for the classroom over the last year:
#3 – iLearn Technology: this blog by Kelly Tenkely regularly offers new ideas, and each post has a thorough explanation
#2 – Free Tech 4 Teachers: Richard Byrne is the author of this award-winning blog, which often gives several new links a day, and recommends how each tool can be applied in the education classroom
#1 – KB Connected – There are usually at least two or three resources added by Karen Bolotin per day with short descriptions, allowing me to easily scan the page for something new that I think might engage my students.
