Create and/or explore TIME LINES - GNA GNA Jun 5, 2009

Great for history teachers and others who want to explore a domain, person, or innovation chronologically. Check out this nifty web-based timeline tool.
Here's an example which chronicles the "History of American Education from 1700."

OMG! TED Talks (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) categorized by curriculum especially for teachers! What a great arrangement of information. I really dig TED Talks and watch one just about everyday and have been searching for the perfect on to share with you all! Check them out here.



- GNA GNA May 30, 2009 Recently re-found an electronic Educational Psychology textbook. This text provides much of what is found in the books traditionally assigned to teachers in training. Good news = its free (vs. $100+) and you don't have to read it. Very brief summaries of theories and some curriculum and instruction content too.

FREE E-BOOKS (FULL TEXT)


- GNA GNA May 21, 2009 When it comes to resources for teachers (myself included) Its so easy to feel like I'm completely in the dark at times. For example, I just (re)found Project Gutenberg (an amazing volunteer-run electronic book archiving project). This would be great for teachers who want to provide books to students, but don't have the cash to buy paper copies, or who want to be green in their consumption paper.


WEB TOOLS FOR LEARNERS (divided by "learning type preference")


Check this out: "100 Helpful web tools for every kind of learner". This is a website that provides links to internet-based resources for "every type of learner".

I wonder how Howard Gardner (theory of multiple intelligences)would weigh-in on each of these?

Or if John Dewey, who promoted "habits of mind" in relation to disciple-based pedagogy i.e., biology teachers have special and unique ways of teaching the "knowledge of biology" (or the ontology of biology) because the practice of biology is unique (in relation to other domains e.g., literature, sewing, algebra, etc.), would figure teaching and learning with (and about) technology as its own habit of mind? Or if teaching and learning with technology is simply a set of skills that add value to a teacher's other so-called habits of mind?
