    Best Web sites for Teaching and Learning Award Nomination

    aelmer

      The American Association of School Librarians is accepting nominations for Web sites that foster innovation, creativity, collaboration...

       

      It's a very short form, they ask for your name and school, the URL, and a short paragraph about the site that includes your reasons for finding it so helpful/beneficial/innovative for instruction.

      "The Best Websites for Teaching and Learning honors websites, tools, and resources of exceptional value to inquiry-based teaching and learning as embodied in the American Association of School Librarians' Standards for the 21st-Century Learner.

      The Top 25 Websites foster the qualities of innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration. They are free, web-based sites that are user friendly and encourage a community of learners to explore and discover."

       

      The Partnership for 21st century skills' site, and many others you know, are included in the list of the top 25.

      What are your favorite free sites for teaching & learning? Be sure to nominate them!
