Wonderful Wednesday Weblinks

Hi all,

Here is this week’s bunch.

PURELY FOR FUN  -  You just move your mouse around and the program does the art. The Fractal zoom is just amazing!

Great interactive site for geography students - Year 8 or those in older grades who struggle with concepts. 

The  PE Geek has some interesting APPS to use or tell your students about.

Great photos from around the world.  Click on any of them and be shown information about the photographer and place.  Really good for SOSE/Geography.  You can hit “Start Exploring” and just choose any part of the world to visualise.

Saving iPAD files through Itunes.

This is a great reminder to us all of our online presence.

Remind students they can access Spine Out via our library webpage  – left-hand side – there are some great competitions on the go at the moment.

A website maker called Breezi that’s easy.  I haven’t tried this yet, but it looks interesting.

PROFESSIONAL READING

Year 10 teachers may be interested in this as you are part of the trial happening  now. Reasons students have trouble goal setting

Putting students on the path to learning - very thought-provoking article about explicit teaching rather than discovery or inquiry learning.

Great article about turning your students into great dgital citizens.

Dealing with Math anxiety

Great list of readings to support the theory that exercise helps learning - preaching the the converted, but may be useful to pass on to your students in a slow-release format.

Sowing the seeds of self-esteem.  Great article by Natasha Devon, a recovered bulimic sufferer, and is about body image and the media.

Interesting article  about US schools  and a disturbing trend towards  giving good grades regardless of abilities. 

My quote for the week is this: 

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
Albert Einstein

Have a great week everyone,

Linda
