Wise Owl - Learning Resources Site

NC WiseOwl is a site published by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. This site provides incredible resources for teachers and students.  The site has featured web sites for elementary, middle and high school "zones."  You will find links to online encyclopedias, dictionaries, photographs, reference material, and interactives.  In additional to the student material, there is a professional zone and a media/tech zone.

When I add a post to my blog, I try to make technology learning easy for educators.  I have tried to share individual programs, tips and web tools.  NC WiseOwl is a bit different because it has an abundance of resources but, the website is easy to navigate and has a clean look that I think you will find "keeps it simple."
The November featured websites link to excellent interactive learning resources with pictures and online quizzes.  Students can even print a certificate after successfully completing a quiz.

As with all lesson activities, it is important for teachers to preview the material.  Ensure the website opens on your computers and that all the links are working.   Thank you to the NC Dept. of Public Instruction for sharing these resources.

I hope you will click though WiseOwl and that you find an activity that will support your November instruction.  Share your comments.
