SMART SCHOOLS

The Smart Schools Program is a community service initiative of Smart Communications Inc. that promotes Information and Communications Technology in basic education through partnerships with public high schools, its officials and parents-teachers-community associations (PTCAs). Specifically, it aims to provide public school teachers with Internet access through the PLDT group's wide range of communications solutions, access to online content and teacher training. It is implemented through the Philippine Business for Social Progress, with the support of the Department of Education and Microsoft's Partners in Learning Program.

Smarter SMART Board Use

SMART Board

nteractive websites engage students by providing information and resources along with practice, simulations, and other learning activities. They can be highly interactive, content-rich simulations such as the Frog Guts simulation and the Leonardo's Workshop games. Or, traditional drill and practice like Funbrain or book quizzes like Book Adventure.
 
Some people think of interactive games as "low level." However, it depends on how they are used. Are students making a good use of their time? Are the activities realistic, yet challenging? Can you use the games to promote learning in another area? Are the sights reinforcing curriculum goals? Can you write about the activities?

Newseum | Today's Front Pages | Map View

Too bad SK is not on here yet..but this is still cool!
I view hundreds of websites and links to websites everyday so when a site grabs my attention and sucks me in like Newseum's Today's Front Pages did today, I have no choice but to share it with all of you. Newseum's Today's Front Pages application is a series of nine maps that display the current front page of major newspapers around the world. Little orange colored dots on each map correspond to the publishing location of each newspaper. Placing your mouse pointer on one of the dots generates a preview of that newspaper's current front page. Click on the preview and you can read that front page or click through to the newspaper's website. The screenshot below is of the US Newseum map
