Power to Lear, Cablevision's education initiative
This site is a great tool not only for teachers but for parents and students as well. Very interactive and eye catching. As a parent and teacher, I would say that the Internet smarts section is great. They have a collection of interactive PPT’s that come along with parent guides and lesson plans for teachers. Students can even take and pass two online quizzes and receive a certificate that says they are “Internet Smart.”
Another section that caught my attention was the “En Español” section. This section could be a very useful tool in my Spanish classroom and even for the ESOL program as well. While browsing the website, I found it easy to navigate. Pages load very quickly even with the amount of content.
Lastly, the technology blog is a valuable section in this website. There are tips and ideas on how to incorporate and put into action technology in the classroom. I will definitely use this website’s technology blog to learn new and fresh ideas. Also, the interactive PPT’s will make it to my classroom this upcoming school year. Overall, I would recommend it to others and definitely add to My Favorites!
