Session Description

There are banks of resources on the Internet that are purposefully designed for use by educators at every level for teaching and learning. Many are cross-curricular, promote 21st century skills, and have many possibilities to increase student engagement with content. The tricky part comes in trying to find resources that are designed for educational practice, achievement of standards, and that are effective for teaching and learning. These resources cannot be found with just a Google search. Participants in this workshop will learn about several resource banks dedicated to teaching and learning for all ages, all content levels, and various learning styles. Resources from respected institutions such as the Library of Congress and Smithsonian Institution are only some of the riches that will be uncovered. People will leave the session with a treasure chest of new tools and ideas for how to use them with students.
