Through the magic of Twitter I’ve seen several really good weblinks today. It seems silly to post each one in its own blogpost, so I’ve collected them here.
Shakespeare Wordles– this site has created all of Shakespeare’s sonnets as Wordle word clouds. Great for seeing what the most used words are in each play – could also be good for revision in a game of “guess the sonnet”.
AverMedia Visualiser Resources – These resources from AverMedia contain good ideas, lesson plans and video guides to using your Visualiser/Document Camera in the classroom.
History of Science Map – Crispian Jago has spent a long creating a map of the most important scientists of the last 500 years in the style of a London Underground map. The map is clickable and links to information about each scientist from Wikipedia.
Wordia – Like a traditional dictionary, Wordia allows users to search for the spelling, meaning and etymology of a word but what makes Wordia unique is the ability for users to explore the personal connotation of word through video.
BBC Wildlife Finder – Take a trip through the natural world with the BBC’s themed collections of video clips from the natural history archive. (Possibly UK-only)
