Tammy Worcester's Tech Site This site has a plethora of awesome resources & ideas for incorporating technology into your classroom. I want to share a couple right now. The first one is the All About Me Scavenger Hunt for 3-12 grade. This activity uses the power of the internet & the ability of your students to search for answers about themselves that they might not have known. I also love her blog, Technology Time Savers it's just what the name implies...tools that will help you save time. Some tools she showcases are Delicious, Fir.ly & File Dropper.
I hope that these sites will help make the 2011-2012 school year the best yet!!!
