Great Site for Teaching Ideas
In my perfect world, all my students have laptops (and thanks to cloud computing, they would be inexpensive ones) and I could serve more as a facilatator. In that world, I would produce assignments such as these found here. This is a great site for many reasons. 1) it connects to many terrific pages which have videos, pictures, ect. 2) it allows a teacher to let the kids go and work in small groups where help is needed. 3) it is a good example of what you can do with Edublog which allows (notice the student names on the left side of the linked page) students to put their work in one place (whether you want them to blog is irrelevant). Edublog allows you to upload documents (an advantage over Blogspot where this blog is housed) and have easy to get tabs to follow student work. In short, it is an example of teaching in the Internet age.
