Monday Message for November 15, 2010

Monday Blues
Happy Monday, everyone! In case you missed last week’s posts, here’s a rundown of the topics covered:

  • Tuesday’s Tool: Chris shared Jing, a great online tool for creating screencasts.
  • Wednesday’s HD Links: Brooke provided a great list of sites for locating royalty/copyright-free images.
  • Thursday’s Teaching Tip: Michelle tipped the idea of using five minute here and there to stimulate higher-order thinking in our students.
  • Friday 4ALL: Carmen shared some great videos from TED, featuring students rethinking education.

For this week, be on the lookout for two posts on getting the most out of Google Earth, a Thanksgiving resource, and an inspirational video on changing educational paradigms. We will take a break Thanksgiving week, but look for us to be back the following week as we carry you through the homestretch to the winter break.

In the meantime, check out this great announcement from Knob Noster:
