I had the opportunity to attend professional development training on the new platform our district is using for teacher websites. We used TeacherWeb last year; this year we will use SharpSchool. The training was fine, and I have a head start on creating my website for the coming year.
But more importantly, the instructor shared a website called Symbaloo with us! Oh my! It is a way to organize favorite websites for a topic using visual buttons. So I played with it ... organizing online interactive games, textbook videos, and more around our introductory unit on functions. I know it still needs work making the buttons prettier ... but it sure is useful already! I think my students will appreciate the ease at which they can choose online activities!
How do you organize approved websites for students?
