14 Educational Websites Students Will Want to Visit

14 Educational Websites Students Will Want to Visit

 

The most popular website at my school, hands down, is Minecraft. Even 1st graders love it (I'm amazed parents let six-year-olds use this sometimes violent game, but they do). Because kids would opt to live in this blocky virtual world 24/7, I only let them play it two lunch periods a week. Those days, my lab is always packed. Kids have no idea they're learning math (estimation, geometry, shapes), science (geology, rocks, minerals), building, or softer skills like thinking and reasoning, problem solving, hypothesis-testing, risk-taking, and collaboration. They don't realize they're exercising that delicate skill called 'creativity' or care that Common Sense Media raves that "Minecraft empowers players to exercise their imagination and take pride in their digital creations as they learn basic building concepts."

There are some great sites here for use in a variety of classes. Worth adding to the toolkit you create for your schools.

Tracy Hanson's curator insight, May 4, 2013 9:41 AM

A "student" or learner desire to visit and explore usually leads to success and motivation.

Tim Scholze's curator insight, May 5, 2013 8:09 PM

Yeah, let the kids play! Learning will take place through discovery.

Scoop.it and I fell in love at first glance.

 

Tim Pixley's curator insight, March 13, 2013 7:57 AM

I agree!  Once you find the right curators and develop relationships with them, they turn into mentors. Some of them are very successful, industry experts, and deeply respected.  Some material gets put out months before they're covered in a college class.  The trick is to be discerning as to what is merely a fad versus a long-term trend. ;)

GOOD and University of Phoenix are proud to announce the launch of the second annual Great American Teach-Off for teachers in grades K through 12.

 

This program is a nationwide competition to celebrate U.S.-based elementary, middle and high school teachers that are engaging students to learn effectively and graduate successfully. Whether these teachers have innovative teaching methods, create unique classroom projects, or organize inspiring after-school programs that encourage community involvement in their school, we want to hear more about them!

Sharla Shults's insight:

Now this is sizzlin' HOT news! If you know a deserving teacher (who doesn't!), please enter that person in the competition. Teachers are NOT recognized enough as it is!
