Juicy geography, literacy, and potatoes

We have two online classes starting on November 1, Creating WebQuests and The Blogs that Bind. Creating WebQuests is a six-week class in which participants use the WebQuest model to build online learning activities. Two grad credits are available. The Blogs that Bind is a new class devoted to exploring how blogs can be used in the classroom as an instructional tool. The class runs for four weeks (one grad credit is available). To register call Jo Urias At 471-7725 ext.149 or register online.

  • The Literacy Project is “a resource for teachers, literacy organisations and anyone interested in reading and education.”
  • Hot Potatoes is an application that allows you to “create interactive multiple-choice, short-answer, jumbled-sentence, crossword, matching/ordering and gap-fill exercises.” And it’s free, of course.
  • Students can keep notes, upload documents, create a to-do list and more with mynoteIT.
  • Starfall is a great site for early elementary students who are learning to read. Lots of activities!
  • This GPS in School page offers a great starting point for geography teachers. You can check out a set of GPS receivers from REMC by calling Kevin Clark. Juicy Geography, the home site for this page, is worth taking a look at as well!

  1. Hot Potatoes is one of those sites that I just keep coming back to, over and over again, but have yet to actually use. Perhaps it’s the lack of a demo on the site (unless I missed something, which I might have). I would really love to see this program in action (or at least read abou it in action) before downloading it and then trying to figure it out offline.
