Scooped by John Dalziel! | Bible reference shortener and site linker

If you are having a religious discussion with learners online, it is always wise to support perspectives with the exact references. If practitioners are referencing the Bible, they should be able to show learners which verse they are talking about to support their argument. Here to help everyone reference Bible verses online is a free to use web service called BibLy.

Go Social Studies Go

Go Social Studies Go | technologies |

Go Social Studies Go is a free site dedicated to making the study of history fun and painless.

John Dalziel's insight:

Go Social Studies Go could be an excellent resource for some practitioners and their learners.
The site is divided into three main sections;

   - U.S. History,

   - World History, and

   - World Religions
Learners can access text, comparable with many existing textbooks, along with multimedia elements for the topics they're reading about.
For some learners, Go Social Studies Go can offer a nice refresher on many topics pre-face-2-face sessions and/or when revising.
