School of the Web – Free Resource
As some of you may be aware, much of Queensland has faced unprecedented flood waters to start 2011. Due to this flooding (at one stage, 75% of the state!), many students are isolated by the flood waters, or evacuated from their homes and communities. I have created a site for those students with internet connection (or an iPhone) to access to keep their minds active during this time. This site is called: School of the Web.
The site not only includes links to a collection of free websites, but also contains an ‘apps’ section for those students who may have an iPhone, but no PC internet connection. Many students out west (where I taught for 3 years) are often in this situation.
I encourage you to share this site with any students (and teachers) you know that may be affected by the floods. I also encourage you to visit the Premier’s website and donate, if you can, to the Premier’s Flood Relief Fund – every donation helps!
My heart goes out to all of those families across Australia that have been affected by these floods. My thoughts are with you all at this time.
