Project Noah was created to provide people of all ages with a simple, easy-to-use way to share their experiences with wildlife. By encouraging your students to share their observations and contribute to Project Noah missions, you not only help students to reconnect with nature, you provide them with real opportunities to make a difference. Once you're registered as a teacher, you can create a new place-based mission for your students. Get them excited about nature by experiencing wildlife observation first-hand. Your students will document the world around them and understand the importance of biodiversity.

Learnist: A Helpful Tool on the Road to Inquiry The meaningful and careful use of technology is one of the most significant conversations in education today.

Learnist for Educators » Online College.org Several months ago I registered for an account with Learnist, one of the more recent of a growing number of options for managing and sharing web-based resources. There’s no avoiding, at least from where I’m sitting, the popularity of tools like this among educators looking for better ways to not only track current trends, but also engage students.
