Free Technology for Teachers: 21 Map Creation Tools for Students and Teachers

"Yesterday, I published a review of MapFab which is a fabulous, free, and simple tool for creating maps  online. Writing that post got me thinking about all of the other free map creation tools that I've reviewed over the years. Google Maps and Google Earth are my favorite tools for creating maps, but not every school allows teachers and students to download it. And creating Google Maps does require you to have a Google account which is an obstacle to use in some schools too. In the list below you will find some map creation tools that don't require registration. And, of course, all of the tools on this list are free for teachers and students to use."  Richard Byrne.

Canadian Wildlife Federation :: Canadian Wildlife Federation | Homeschooling in the 21 century. | Scoop.it

By registering with Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) as an educator http://www.cwf-fcf.org/en/educate/sign-up.html you receive updates and direct emails for opportunities to participate in educational programs. These programs are generally offered to all educators regardless of class size. Our family has participated in contests and has had opportunities to have photos and writings published, as well as meet other leaders in wildlife conservation. We met Olympic Medalist Adam Kreek, as well as world-renowned artist, Robert Bateman. By providing these unique opportunities I hope to inspire my children as well as providing role models.

 
 
From CWF site:
http://www.cwf-fcf.org/en/educate/
CWF education programs are built on sound pedagogical foundations: a conceptual framework, curriculum links, piloting in Canadian classrooms, and the scrutiny of scientific experts. Our programs are designed to meet the needs not only of teachers but also of youth leaders, park naturalists, and other conservation educators.

Pippa's Homeschool and Library Blog: Instilling a Love of Learning with Homeschooling

Pippa's Homeschool and Library Blog: Instilling a Love of Learning with Homeschooling | Homeschooling in the 21 century. | Scoop.it

As the year winds to an end we often wonder if the pivotal points in our student's learning corresponds to what we hope they need and want to learn.  Did we somehow tie in the learning outcomes to meet our student's learning style, and passions, or interests?  We know from reading The Element that true learning should stem from the heart or passion of a child.  But how do we know where our children's passions, or God given gifts begin?  At 5 or 6 years old we cannot really get a glimpse of our future child prodigy, or can we?  Do our kids really LOVE what they are doing?  Pippa Davies shares from her blog.

Want To Improve Science Education? Let Kids Build Rockets and Robots Instead of Taking Standardized Tests. | Homeschooling in the 21 century. | Scoop.it

Read more from Slate's special issue on science education and give us your best ideas for raising the next generation of scientists and engineers. On a morning visit to a Northern California middle school, I saw not a single student. The principal showed me around campus, but I didn’t see or hear students talking, playing, or moving about. The science lab was empty, as were the library and the playground. It was not a school holiday: It was a state-mandated STAR testing day. The school was in an academic lockdown. A volunteer manned a table filled with cupcakes, a small reward for students at day’s end.
