After reading quite a few of really boring blogs, I’ve started finding blogs I REALLY like. I really, really enjoy reading Richard Byrne’s blog – Free Technology for Teachers. I especially liked this post – Worried About Students Being Off Task - watch this! The video is hilarious and thought provoking as well.
Another blogger that I really like is Diane Chan. She is a fellow librarian and I really relate with what she has to say. Luckily I have good administrators and do not have to deal with administrators and censorship. Read the following blog post to get a better picture Let’s pretend this one didn’t happen please.
Encyclopedia of Life – Species Quiz on Google Earth -This is so cool. I want to give this activity to some of my students – maybe Grade 4 and see where they take us. It is always fun and educational (for me at least) to give new stuff like this to students to play with.
If you like the idea of Power Points and students using it, but need ideas and guidelines on how to make Power Point presentations fun and not boring, than this is a must read for you -Power Point Repair Process.
After using my Google Reader on a regular basis ( I know cannot imagine my mornings without it – I am know reading it at 6:30 am and it is not even a work day -today is a holiday! – and not metaphorically speaking) Anyway, after a few days of reading and finding different blogs, I came across a blog written by a guy I know. This awesome guy, Boris Velican who travels across the world to all this great destinations and than writes about his experiences. On his last travel adventure he went to Sahara – by HIMSELF – ON FOOT. And trust me – his posts are fun and so honest. The only catch is that it is written in Croatian -Pjesice od Zagreba do Sahare.
