Free Resources: TeachersFirst's 10,000 Online Learning Resources for K-12 Teachers

Posted May 1, 2009
Bookmark and Share

TeachersFirst has announced that teachers now have access to 10,000 online learning resources, all reviewed and approved by master teachers, via its website. The resources—websites offering a wide variety of content for all subjects in grades K-12—are presented by the nonprofit organization as it celebrates its 11th anniversary. The service has thousands of members in more than 50 countries, and averages more than 50,000 page views daily.

 

The resource reviews include not only descriptions and highlights of each resource, but practical suggestions for implementation in the classroom. All reviews are available, sorted by subject and grade level, at www.teachersfirst.com/matrix.cfm, or searchable by keyword at www.teachersfirst.com/search.cfm.

 

About two dozen new resources are added each week. Some are created by TeachersFirst staff, the rest are carefully selected existing websites—not only education-oriented resources but general-interest sites that have value in the classroom.

 

The 10,000-resource milestone was reached with the selection of Woices, an innovative service that allows students and teachers to create sound recordings keyed to geographic locations. The recordings, available worldwide on the internet, can provide curriculum connections for a wide variety of subjects and ages. The extensive TeachersFirst review is available at www.teachersfirst.com/single.cfm?id=10000.

 

TeachersFirst.com is a service of The Source for Learning, a not-for-profit corporation providing enhanced learning through technology.
