Tech Talk Tips 11-13-11

I find many of the links that I share on Twitter or from blogs via RSS feeds in my Google Reader. Richard Byrne from the Free Technology for Teachers blog provides many excellent recommendations for free Web resources. A few of his recent standouts include:

The Wild Classroom
http://www.thewildclassroom.com/
Check out the Biome Map as well as the videos and podcasts on biology and ecology subjects. According to the web site, "Our goal is to open the eyes of the public to science by producing action-filled nature documentaries, creating exciting lesson plans for schools and educators, and by holding seminars, presentations and photographic exhibitions."

Simple Science's Videos
http://vimeo.com/user697789/videos
Includes 91 videos that aim to give elementary and middle school students clear explanations of science topics.

Math Chimp
http://www.mathchimp.com/index2.php
Several KES teachers asked for resources for teaching and reinforcing math facts. Check out Math Chimp, with games for Grades 1-5! The web site says: "Welcome to Math Chimp! We collect free online math games and organize them by the common core standards. We're glad you've come to play cool math games here... they're free and always will be!"

Take a look at other math resources I've bookmarked at  http://delicious.com/barbwit56/math.
