Today at Pearson's Celebrating Literacy Conference the keynote Speaker was Heidi Hayes Jacob. She shared a fantastic repository of links to hundreds of exciting digital tools. I can't wait to get into the classroom and start using so many of these tools! Some of my favourites include:
Newspapermap - allows you to read newspapers from anywhere in the world in English!
Google Art Project - allows you to take your students through many famous world museums and study the art within
zooburst - lets you create your own digital pop-up books
gapminder - unbelievable graphing tool!
