Answers.com

by Michelle Moore - Friday, February 3, 2006, 8:24 PM
 
From Kellie Smith:

Here is a free, excellent site to use for your classes or for your own
reference:
www.answers.com

It is not complex to use but here is a demo of how the site works, showing
different resources it has to offer:
http://www.answers.com/main/flash_demo.jsp

>From their site:
"Reliability, not popularity, is the criterion for our answers. Answers.com
contains only up-to-date, accurate definitions and explanations from
authoritative sources like Houghton-Mifflin, Columbia University Press, Merriam
Webster, MarketWatch, Investopedia and Who2. In addition, you can trust your
children with Answers.com content, eliminating the need to do research in
potentially out-of-date or unsafe sites on the Web."

This site helps put together information better than search engines. You can
research topics, weather, people, definitions, etc. For teachers who do
research projects and have their students use this site to gather information
it will help the students with the different citations needed for their papers.
It is has a teacher toolkit that shows what is going on for the current day and
how this site can be beneficial for ESL and EFL students. I hope that you take
the time to check this site out.

Enjoy!

The Email ABC's (recommended by KSDE Technology Assistance Team)
http://www.education-world.com/a_tech/tech/tech185.shtml

From the website:
"Most of today's students grew up with e-mail. Many believe that e-mail is a totally different kind of medium, unfettered by the rules that govern letter writing. Most classroom teachers didn't grow up using e-mail. They believe that e-mail should adhere to the same rules of grammar and style as snail mail. Who's right?

Let's take a look at the ABCs of e-mail etiquette. Included: Twenty-six tips for composing and sending e-mail."
