I know there are a huge number of classroom timers out there but this seems so easy I thought I would share it. Google as a classroom timer, you simply type Set timer in the search bar and you get a timer. You set your time and then you can go whole screen, it is nice a big so it can be projected for the whole class. What a great thing and so easy. I love easy! Again, a tip from Free Technology for Teachers.
I found a really great history site this morning, it has a Visual History of the Last 100 Years. I got it from the blog Free Technology for Teachers, and I admit I get some of my best resources from this blog. I loved this, it quickly explains the events with graphics to support the text. There are timelines, and infographics. Teens get so bored with dry explanations, this seems a nice way to bring a little more interest into this topicl
I am finding it harder and harder to keep track of all things technology but I keep trying. It has been quite awhile since I posted here because I kept getting blocked by our school filter, that is another story! I think we are good now so I am going to try and give you a few links to some good iPad apps I found today.
Today most of the apps are coming from Technology Tidbits, a really great blog offering a lot of good resources for technology in the classroom.
Level it Books - an app that helps parents and teachers track their students reading level.
Welcome to my blog, I am trying to place the links I find that I believe are wonderful here. I don't always get them up but I am trying! These are the links that I believe will benefit educators in their classrooms, professionally and personally.
