Really Cool (and Free) Resources on the Web


I attended a TCEA Webinar during lunch today and learned about some free educational resources you might want to check out (if you don’t already know about them):
 
Gravity Assist Simulator
http://messenger-education.org/Interactives/ANIMATIONS/grav_assist/gravity_assist.html
Note: good for science classes

RadioLab
www.radiolab.org
Note: good for all classes but topics seem to blend science, philosophy, and human experience (my kind of thing)

Why Do Americans Vote on Tuesdays?
http://ed.ted.com/lessons/why-do-americans-vote-on-tuesdays
Note: good current event topic and good example of the TEDed content that classes can benefit from)

If you like the above resources, then check out more from “TCEA’s Lunch and Learn” site:

Note: be sure to check out the last three items: 6-12 Tools, Links, Resources (you will be glad you did!)
