Even More Online Resources

Thanks to the internet, there are resources and opportunities that just did not...

...exist a few years ago.

Recently I encouraged students and teachers to look into LinkedIn both for networking and to participate in discussions related to teaching, career exploration and skill development.

I just found out about an opportunity to take part in an online discussion. It is quite soon so I wanted to let you know right away.

Set aside June 12-16, 2011 and get online to hear Mary Spratt addresses "Making The Most of Teacher Talk : When, what, why, how, why, alternatives". You can get details and sign in here - http://www.seeta.eu/.

This is a wonderful - and free - way to see what other people are doing and what struggles you may share with people around the world.

And, if that's not enough, here's a a collection of free (!) PDF files that might meet any resource needs you might have.

As of early June 2011, all PDF versions of books published by the National Academies Press (NAP) will be downloadable free of charge to anyone. This includes their current catalog of more than 4,000 books plus future reports published by NAP. Check out what they have here - http://www.nap.edu/.

I love the internet, you never know what little piece of information, story or insight you might stumble into. I incorporate my little discoveries in my classes all the time.

Let us know what links or other resources you find useful or encouraging. We are all learning and making new connections all the time. And sharing makes our journey much richer.
