Websites that Still Work!

In February I am going to closing in on blogging for 10 years in this space. Wow!

I recently discovered a VERY OLD weblist I used for some of my first presentations. It's on Diigo- anyone remember Diigo (I started bookmarking on delicious which went defunct soon after). A theme of this blog has been having a K├╝bler-Ross style understanding that some technology passes away.



But looking through this list, I wanted to note that some of the resources from 10 years ago are still quite useful. Keep in mind that some of these are flash-based and you'll want to use on a laptop or Chromebook:

iCivics
Interactive games promoting understanding of civics, world schema, narrative language, cause-effect (also some iPad apps)

Randall's ESL Cyber Listening Lab
Audio files with functional information (e.g. a phone message) good for building listening strategies

Popplet
A very cool concept mapping website, make graphic organizers and discussion maps (also an iPad app for this one)

Jamestown Online Adventure
Consider making a graphic organizer or decision tree for this oldie but goodie aligning with social studies curriculum

Utah Education Network
Wide selection of interactive websites on K-12 curriculum topics- many promote categorization, narrative, cause-effect and conditional thinking, and make curriculum concepts and vocab visible.

Storybird
Add text to pictures to form a "book"- good for descriptive language, "thinking with eyes," narrative

Sensory World Garden
Mindful activities about a yard setting/seasons

QR Scavenger Hunt
Make a quick scavenger hunt using QR codes- good for collaborative work, moving in a group, responding to questions. Also see other ClassTools.net tools.
