Aside from playing with my kids, reading, cleaning, doing course work, and keeping up this blog I have been trying to keep up with my Twitter pln by reviewing blog posts, looking at links, and finding great stuff from last week's ISTE conference. This is one of the top technology conferences of the year. While I did not and have not ever attended, I love the information I get from those who did. So, in conjunction with my normal rambling on about reading, I want to share with those of you reading the great sites, ideas and articles that have been shared with me from ISTE.
One of the coolest sites I have seen a long time is the Museum Box. Here students can create a virtual "box" of artifacts about an event, a person or a time period in history. What a great way to get kids looking at primary and secondary sources, addressing non-fiction reading skills, and putting that together with digital literacy skills to boot! I think in all of my free time this summer, I will do one for Lewis and Clark, or maybe Sacagawea, Amelia Erhart, Thomas Jefferson, the Civil War...................I just hope I have enough time to do it all!
