A new portal with resources from Discovery Education is available for teachers. Curiosity in the classroom offers content for grades 6-12.
This is a new website of videos and photos (e.g. multimedia) that probably was created for adults, but is suitable for a much younger audience. Much of it inspires wonder and and curiosity about our world.
This July, the Virginia Society for Technology in Education is sponsoring its ITRT Summer Camp, where I’ll be presenting on spaces online for sharing your… stuff. Resource teachers have web links, presentations, tutorials, and more to share with not only their colleagues in schools, but also with one another.
You can download the slides from my presentation; or if you like the multimedia experience, I’ve chatted through the ideas with the slides in this video.

The main idea?
- Share the Resources You Use
- Tell Us How You Used the Resource(s)
- Evaluate its Effectiveness Towards Your (Instructional) Goals
