Inspiration Links

Hey everyone!

In my travels around the internet tonight I came across some Inspiration websites that I thought might be of interest to people especially with their focus on its integration into the classroom. The first site I came across is from a website hosted by a teacher named Vicki Blackwell. She actually has lots of good tutorials on a variety of technology and how they can be used in the classroom. The site is located at http://www.vickiblackwell.com/classrm.html and has a very nice tutorial and lots of tips and links. Albeit it uses Inspiration 6 but it still has relevance.

Another site is a set of links from a school district. A couple of their links that might be of interest are "50 Things for Inspiration and Kidspiration" and "Inspiration in the Classroom." The site is located at http://www.leesummit.k12.mo.us/ITS/inspiration.htm.

The last site is the Inspiration site which also has lots of great resources for teachers. The site (http://www.inspiration.com/resources/index.cfm) has a very easy to navigate interface with lots of great ideas and articles.

  • It's kind of strange to be commenting to my own post but I wanted to add this link. Since we're talking about graphic organizers I thought I would throw this out as a great resource for the class. It has a series of graphic organizers you can print out and use for the class. The link is http://www.chass.ncsu.edu/livinginourworld/resourcecenter.htm.

    Cheers
