There is a wealth of free resources available online which can be used in the classroom. Below is a selection of my favourites.
Websites and Blogs are increasingly being used in education by teachers and students. Having a classroom website or blog can benefit everyone involved including the students, the teacher, and the parents.
Classroom websites are great places to post news, pictures, homework instructions and teaching resources. Blogs can provide a communication tool that teachers can use with students to develop writing, share ideas and reflect on work being undertaken in the classroom. Free online tools such as 'Weebly' (www.weebly.com) allow teachers to create secure student blogs, or classroom websites, with little or no prior technical knowledge!
