Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 9, 2013 10:32 PM

Are you looking for ways to learn online this year? Check out this post which provides 13 possibilities for you to explore. A few of them are:

* Get inspired by great speeches - listen to speeches from turning points in history, movies and more!

* Directory of open access journals - do you need to research a topic? Check out journals that provide free access.

* Publish your own graphic novel - Use Comic Master to write a graphic novel (or perhaps, have students in your class use it).

* Explore maps - new and old. With GPS we may neglect maps, yet maps are an amazing tool. Learn about geograpgy, culture, history and more as you explore old maps (and new) at a variety of websites. 

Nine additional links await you when you click through to this post!

While this list of ideas might be geared more towards the author in training, it is also a great place to get ideas for teaching creative writing to students.

Like many other adults, adult learners are trying to figure out how to make good choices when buying a computer. A group of educators from Boston area decided to address this need by developing a web-based virtual visit to a computer store that can be used for self-study or as part of a class with adult learners. Their web site “How to buy a computer” is one of several web-based projects completed by adult educators who participated in professional development on using the Web to augment instruction and supporting learners who might benefit from self-study. Practitioners from Massachusetts and Rhode Island focused on developing and supporting online learning options while Connecticut and Vermont practitioners learned how to build Web sites with students as a project-based activity.
