25 Top Web Sites

We constantly hear of web sites that we should visit, use, sign up for, share . . . but this list from the ALA and AASL is the top 25 for teaching and learning. Here’s how they describe their list:

“The “Top 25″ Web sites foster the qualities of innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration. They are free, Web-based sites that are user friendly and encourage a community of learners to explore and discover.”

I would describe it as an excellent set of tools. Discover these sites for yourself. Pick one or two to bring into your classroom or your personal learning network. Why not try Good Reads to share books with others. Try out Skype and make video calls for free. Google Reader can help you gather lots of interesting reading and resources into one location. Or, if you’ve tried out these already, venture into the virtual worlds of Second Life.
