Five Friday Finds

Often, finding good web resources are the hardest part of the job for an educator.  With all the demands on a teacher's time, who has time to spend searching?  If this is you, here are some resources you may found useful.  Please feel free to share with others

The goal of Dulcinea is to help students (and others) more effectively search the Internet for credible information.  There are 8 different products-all free, including one for educators.

Free Children’s Audio Books:
Many classic children’s books available in iTunes (podcast) or mp3 format.  I saw many that I know are read in schools. (Make sure to skip past the ads down to the free downloads)

Plus Magazine…living mathematics:
Plus is an internet magazine which aims to introduce readers to the beauty and the practical applications of mathematics.”

“Explore the stars and planets through your web browser.”

Social Studies-
“A new way to look at the world;” the user picks a subject (such as population, migrants, literacy, mortality, religion…) and all world countries are resized to their % of the world total for that subject.   A very visual graphic for students.
