I include lots of links for my readers to places that will help them integrate technology into their education. They cover websites on lesson plans,
math, keyboarding, classroom management, cloud computer, digital books, teacher resources, free tech resources, and more. On any given day, I generate on average 157 of these click throughs. Which links my readers select tells me a lot about the type of information they’re looking for from me.
Here’s a list of the top sites my readers selected to visit from my blog:
- Keyboard Climber–actually, the top four were keyboarding websites, so I’ll lump them all into the #1 slot. They included:
- Mousing around--a fun mouse-skills program that’s perfect for kindergarten and first grade
- Landforms–good easy-to-read info on our earth
- Geogreeting–a fun site that finds letters and messages in the earth’s geography
- Sqooltube–kid-friendly videos on lots of academic topics
- Zoopz–a wonderful logical thinking site with no advertising
What do I conclude from this? you-all first are looking for as much keyboarding information as I can provide. Second, you want information on managing the classroom. I hear you. Check back this new year and see what I come up with.
