Ed Tech Resources from “The Educator's Best Friend”.
This week's midweek post is a brief introduction to a useful web site for educators. Education World has a wealth of resources, grouped into 6 main sections, such as “Lesson Planning”, “Professional Development”, “Administrators”, and “Technology Integration”.
The Technology Integration page is rather busy (as is the rest of the site), but that's because it is densely packed with resources. These resources include columnist features, links to useful websites, information about web events, ‘Featured Site' reviews, and more. One particular feature I'd like to draw attention to is the “Techtorials” – simple text based technology tutorials, that can be viewed on line or downloaded as PDF files. There are dozens of these available in the “Techtorial archives”.
The Education World web site is a fun and useful online resource to be aware of and visit, whether it's to browse around and spark some fresh ideas about lesson plans or professional development, to search out information on a specific topic, or to just look around and see what's new.
