Porter Palmer shared some awesome tips with us this morning, at the Den Virt Con!

Go to Free Teacher/Learner Resources on the home page of www.discoveryeducation.com

– All are available before you log in! This will be great to share with others that do not have access to Discovery Education, yet.

  • Lesson Plans – You can sort by grade levels, and subject areas
  • Webinars

Next, we toured the many resources to be a “curator” of the resources that we find.  www.scoopit.com will be the “curator” tool that I incorporate more. I plan on using Scoopit, for articles and other documents that I find online.

www.delicious.com or www.diigo.com are bookmark tools that look beneficial for sorting website URLs.

A note-taking tool that will link to a variety of platforms is www.evernote.com

Porter challenged us to throw out resources, or “clean out our tackle box” when we are not using them.
