Bridge To Home
This is an amazing concept and one that students, parents and teachers will find extremely helpful. Students can gather resources, organize them into playlists, pose questions to their peers or teachers on a long list of subjects. Teachers can find standards-aligned web resources, organize them into playlists for teaching or posting for their students to explore. There are numerous tools for notetaking, organizing a personal playlist for any subject, searching for additional information and for finding applications that promote learning. Spend some time exploring this site, especially if you are faced with helping your student with homework assignments that exceed require up-to-date information. The ‘social’ aspect of the site will appeal to most youngsters and motivate them to network as they problem solve
Bridge To School
At last someone has taken the time and effort to screen YouTube videos and create a special section just for schools, filled with age-appropriate educational material. All age groups are targeted from primary to life-long learners. You can easily jump from khanacademy for math to the Space Lab with an introduction by Stephen Hawking to Sesame Street videos illustrating basic concepts in typical Sesame Street style. Teachers might find the YouTube.com/Teachers section helpful in learning how to use this educational section as a teaching tool.
