My Top Ten+ Sites

Trinity College
Hard to go by this site. There is so much here that you may not know where to start.

http://library.trinity.wa.edu.au/
The curriculum pages are outstanding, as is the list of searching sites. Also has an interesting page on the so called “Invisible Web” at http://library.trinity.wa.edu.au/library/invis/invis.htm
 

Google
The best searching tool by far. Have a look at the “Preferences” tool.

http://www.google.com.au/

Also, the Google Otions page should not be missed – especially interesting are the “GoogleLabs”

 

Virtual Teacher
An Australian Site. This site’s owner produces a newsletter each fortnight full of great stuff for teachers. SUBSCRIBE!
The site is at http://www.virtualteacher.com.au/
After you have subscribed, go into the Directory and have a look at the wonderful collection of resources. The address is  http://www.virtualteacher.com.au/directory.html

 

Teach-nology
This site is jammed packed with teacher tools. I like to look here for lesson plans at  http://www.teach-nology.com/teachers/lesson_plans/ and also, the teacher tools are a wonderful resource. They are moving towards a “pay” system, but the free tools are still there. USE THESE FREE TOOLS at http://teachers.teach-nology.com/web_tools/ To get an overview, go to http://www.teach-nology.com/sitemap/ and look at the site map.

 

Worksheets
A huge site full of WORKSHEETS to print http://www.schoolexpress.com/fws/cat.php?id=2252 This site is one of many highlighted on the page at http://www.kidmanpkps.sa.edu.au/home/waroy/PD/newest_pd4.html
have a look. One of the best listed here is http://www.edhelper.com/Back_To_School.htm giving so many ready made pages of work to copy for the class.

 

Kennesaw University
One of the best for themes is http://edtech.kennesaw.edu/web/3-5.htm and for younger kids look at http://edtech.kennesaw.edu/web/k-2.htm
A further amazing resource is at http://webtech.kennesaw.edu/jcheek3/curriculum.htm
