Searches the “dark” Internet (no, not the XXX websites), this ALSO searches the websites that are only accessible by subscription, like the WSJ or Forbes) May be good for finding more data-driven material
Experimental human-driven “meta” searches - a person selects their own collection of websites and then the search is restricted to those. Click on the EXPLORE tab, search for "math teaching" and try the roll “My Math Teaching Sites” rolled by Maria Andersen.

Our students enter a world where they must manage their digital life and their real life. If we don"t teach them how to do this, who will. We cannot bury our heads in the sand and say "don"t use the Internet." We have to teach students worthwhile things to do with the technology we now have.
If we can incorporate images, demonstrations, or diagrams… we should. If those images, demonstrations, or diagram can be interactive… even better.

I’ve been teaching this way for (fill in the blank) years, and I already feel pressed for time. And now I should add technology from the Internet? Isn’t this going to take a lot of time? (scroll) Yes, don’t do all your classes at once.
Look at each element of your traditional lesson structure / class time… What do we do? Why do we do it? i.e. How is it beneficial to student learning? What are the drawbacks? With all the resources we have at our disposal, is there a better way?

Pros: Easy to use, already in your browser Cons: Only on one computer (not portable), you may add a link to favorites at home, but then it’s not at school.
Pros: Portable, each link can have multiple labels, what you bookmark at home is also at work & vice versa. Cons: You must get a Google account. For convenience, you should download the Google Toolbar to machines you use all the time.
A social bookmarking site where you maintain and share your bookmarks. Pros: Social nature. Cons: Also requires account.
Remember that all you"re going to see at the WD website is a PREVIEW of the interactive demo. To obtain the demo, you will need to download the Mathematica Player (only need to do this once) and then download the demos. I just spent an hour one day downloading 250 demos to my hard drive. The demos are small, the player is large.

Applied Math and Science Education Repository. AMSER is intended for faculty, staff, librarians, and students.
You must download the free Mathematica Player to be able to interact with the Wolfram Demonstrations. The player is pretty hefty in size - so it should be downloaded where there is sufficiently fast Internet. Over 4,000 demonstrations, around 3,000 for math. (1/7/09)
Science Literacy Maps (a subgroup of NSDL) is a tool for teachers to find NSDL resources that relate science and math concpets. The maps do a nice job of illustrating the connections between concepts.
National Library of Virtual Manipulatives Really intended for the K-12 Math audience ... but if you teach statistics or Math for Elementary Teachers, this is a good resource.
National Science Digital Library Can search for topic under the tab "Higher Ed & Research"
Multimedia Education Resource for Learning and Online Teaching You do NOT need an account to browse and use the resources (only to rate or save them to folders) Click on "Mathematics and Statistics" to browse the 1584 results. 1/7/09

Remember that you can use a blog reader (via RSS) to follow along on many blogs at a time.
A blog is like a newspaper column, published by an organization or individual(s). You visit the blog on a periodic basis to read or subscribe.
Now the blogs come to you collected in a "newspaper-like" format instead of you having to actively visit them on your own.
Look for the "Blog Roll" on each of these blogs. Most bloggers post a list of the blogs they read. Follow these blog rolls to your perfect "end of the rainbow" blog.
Pros: Easier than building a website! It’s your list, your personal journal of your professional development - organize it how you’d like. You can always find the information you"re looking for if you"ve made a blog entry. Cons: Now you’ll be one of “those people” with a blog.
