The use of technology in the learning process is a valuable tool; however, what tools exist to enable and facilitate education? The following was a growing list of resources that I had found useful and interesting. I divided the links into categories and none are in any particular order. All of these links will open in a new browser window. Close that window to return here. Enjoy!

  1. Hello Neil!

    I had emailed you in the past regarding your World Geography site. Now I’m teaching US History and am creating a website. I’d like to add the Old Glory YouTube clip to my home page. How did you do that?

    thanks!

    Janice Newlin
