Friday Recap

Happy Friday! I have had a lot going on this week, I am SO glad to see Friday. Here is what I was up to when I wasn’t blogging at iLearn Technology: Grammaropolis (my favorite grammar website) has an app for the iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone! I reviewed it over at my other blog http://ipadcurriculum.com. Last night I presented an idea and project I have been working on since September at House of Genius. It was a fantastic experience, now I invite all of you to be my House of Genius and add your 2 cents at Dreams of Education. I wrote this last week but didn’t do a Friday recap so I’ll share it this week 🙂 A call for education to be more Da Vinci like. I am currently working with two schools in town.  One I am taking from zero technology to a 1 to 1 environment– it has been a fun experience for all of us.  I am helping the other school roll out a social media plan, equally fun experience! I don’t know about you all but I NEED this 3 day weekend.  Can you see me jumping up and down?!  I wish you all a wonderful, restful weekend!

What it is:   NASA Images is a website where you can find amazing images of the universe, solar system, earth, aeronautics and astronauts.  In addition to images, you will find video and audio collections in this easily searchable digital library.  The site has a picture timeline of spaceflight, collections of images, audio, and video, and presentations created by users.  The content on NASA images is not under copyright so it can be used without express permission.  This means that you and your students can use the high quality images, HD video, and audio in slideshows, movies, classroom websites, blogs, and interactive whiteboard notebooks.

How to integrate NASA Images into the classroom:  This is an incredible collection of resources.  Students and teachers can use them to enhance any space unit.  This site will excite students and build interest around space exploration, aeronautics, and astronomy.  Create your own planetarium or journey through space and share with an interactive whiteboard or in a slide show presentation with a projector.  Students could create a blog or wiki all about their ‘travels’ through space for other students and parents to view.  NASA Images even offers the tools to build a presentation right on the site.  Presentations can then be embedded on other websites, wikis, or blogs.

 

Tips:  NASA Images is updated regularly, check back for the newest additions.
