learningscience.org is an organization dedicated to sharing the newer and emerging "learning tools" of science education. Tools such as real-time data collection, simulations, inquiry based lessons, interactive web lessons, micro-worlds, and imaging, among others, can help make teaching science an exciting and engaging endeavor. These tools can help connect students with science, in ways that were impossible just a few years ago. Take a look at a few different types of "learning tools" at this link, Tool Examples. At this point in our project we are highlighting some of the best web resources for science concepts. Although our main emphasis is on students, teachers, and parents, really anyone interested in science education will find the site useful and informative.

Over the years, TeachersFirst has created a number of lessons and instructional units that have proven popular with our users. While these are all listed in the various TeachersFirst subject pages, we have also listed them here. We hope this list will simplify searching for those of you who have used these resources in the past, and that they will provide new users with a quick introduction to some of the material available on our site.

My Hero is a site where students can write about people they view as...heroes. You can register and create a multimedia webpage about your choices, but, even better (at least, in my view), you can go to the Guestbook area and write a short piece that appears immediately (there are automatic filters to screen content, plus it's manually screened later).

Topical units to date focus on Japan in the modern world. Units in development extend to early-modern and modern China. The thrust of these explorations extends beyond Asia per se, however, to address "culture" in much broader ways--cultures of modernization, war and peace, consumerism, images of "Self" and "Others," and so on.
Images of every sort are introduced and examined here--in partnership with contributing institutions and collections, and with the collaboration of experts devoted to transcending the printed word and hard-bound text.
