7:24 PM

Pat

7:33 PM

Can you also search your saved resources by doing a search, or will it only work with the main selections?

Yes

7:33 PM

That's right

7:34 PM

yes

7:34 PM

carol hughes 1

7:37 PM

so classification of insects would work

Sharon Hall

7:37 PM

yes, it would

carol hughes 1

7:37 PM

thanks

Sharon Hall

7:37 PM

you could even refine it more if you wanted, but wouldn't find as many results

Melissa Henning

7:39 PM

http://www.teachersfirst.com/

Matt Sorg

7:44 PM

When you search 9-12. Why does it give you younger grades? Is it because it includes all grade 12 links?

Melissa Henning

7:45 PM

The search results would include anything that has grades 9, 10, 11, and 12. Some sites are created for 4-9, for example. So that would be included in a search for grades 9-12. Does that make sense?

Sharon Hall

7:45 PM

it will give you younger grades if they happen to have to fit in the same category - for example, some sites may be labeled as grades 5-12 so they will show up

Matt Sorg

7:46 PM

I see

Pat

7:47 PM

Some great online things for animal adaptations, our current science unit, I think it was skool.uk site

carol hughes 1

Sharon Hall

7:49 PM

lol Susan, I get distracted too

Matt, there are several print your own graph paper sites so you may want to search for others

7:50 PM

Matt Sorg

8:04 PM

Matt Sorg

8:05 PM

When you share your public page, does it just place a link n your site you shared with?

Susan

8:05 PM

Sharon Hall

8:05 PM

yes, that is usually the case, it is like copying and pasting the url to that service

oh, sorry Susan

8:05 PM

Melissa Henning

8:05 PM

Oh no....

Sharon Hall

8:05 PM

Melissa Henning

8:05 PM

Charlotte Oglesby

8:07 PM

Pat

8:07 PM

Checked out rcampus rubrics, good site! Every time you log on, you find a new treasure! LOL!

Sharon Hall

8:07 PM

Gail Maloney

8:08 PM

Shirley Miller

Gail Maloney

8:13 PM

#2 - I will share the URL with parents through a group email.

JoyceAllison

8:14 PM

sharing url...facebook page, school website..email..syllabus

Pat

8:14 PM

I will add the url to my personal web site on my school account, especially when I want the students to review something we are doing in class

Shirley Miller

8:14 PM

Pat, I think that's a great idea!

Matt Sorg

8:14 PM

I may look at sharing the public page on my District class website, (Edline). Our district is moving to 1-1 computing next year and we are looking for new ways to share info to students

Sharon Hall

8:14 PM

I have used Edline and that would be a great way

perhaps update it quarterly with relevant information

8:15 PM

Pat

8:15 PM

Thanks!

carol hughes 1

8:15 PM

thanks

Sharon Hall

8:15 PM

thank you all, we hope you found it useful

JoyceAllison

8:15 PM

Susan

8:15 PM

thanks... interesting as usual...happy new year
