The Common Core Toolkit from Burkins & Yaris

The Common Core Toolkit from Burkins & Yaris | Technology Transforming Learning | Scoop.it
In this post, we present readers with a revised version of the Illustrated Common Core complete with the periodic table of the Common Core standards and several tools for making implementation easier!

Via Darren Burris
Sharon Edwards's insight:

Burkins and Yaris thoughtfully consider three things:

helping teachers teach;

helping students and teachers learn;

finding and utilizing resources that produce the learning.

 

Daily blog well worth the few minutes of reading!

How often do we hear personal stories of big big numbers? This podcast is interesting to people who like astrophysics, physics, big numbers, vast distances, and curious problems. It's fun to listen to and to ponder how minds think when they possess information most of us do not! And only through the technology of podcasts and vodcasts would this story be accessible to hear and share. Adam Becker tells his story in this podcast.

WordHippo

WordHippo | Technology Transforming Learning | Scoop.it

This great site is a sort of hybrid dictionary/translator/Thesaurus/word search engine  -  All these features in one spot! Its cool features include finding another word for a word, the opposite meaning of a word, the actual meaning of a word and translating a word into six different languages. All of these are can be clicked, linking to other similar nouns for each word. You can have the word placed in context with the “Sentences with the word” feature or even find the plural/singular/past tense/present tense of any word! Perhaps the most helpful is the “Find words” feature; you can search for words by letter (1 through 10) either starting with, ending with or containing whatever letter you type.
