Updated for 2013! The American Library Association of School Librarians list of the 25 Best Websites for Teachers contains links to great sites, and correlates to the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner. There are links to media sharing, digital storytelling, curriculum and content resources. Also available on the site are links to the previous 25 Best Websites.My favorite this year? Pinterest - fabulous (although can be overwhelming) ideas for the classroom. Search for bulletin boards on Pinterest, and draw on the collective creativity!
SmartExchange - Find lessons to download
Smartboard in the Classroom has some great ideas and includes subject area specifics.
TeachersLoveSmartboards - Monthly newsletters with lessons for the classroom.
