Free Technology for Teachers


This blog reviews free technology resources for teachers and offers guidance on how to integrate technology into the classroom.  And of course, the best part is that everything is free!  A quick scan suggests that the content is very timely and well-researched.

FREE: Federal Resources for Educational Excellence


This is a fantastic site that “makes it easier to find teaching and learning resources from the federal government.  More than 1,500 federally supported teaching and learning resources are included from dozens of federal agencies. New sites are added regularly.” 

The site is extremely well-organized and easy to search.  Choose a topic from the subject list and find great information about everything ranging from  scientists, countries of the world, history, and jazz to ethnic studies and literature.

Free Clip Art

I often have students looking for clip art for their PowerPoint presentations or reports, and since the Clip Organizer in Word doesn’t always behave as it should, I often end up directing them to a Google image search.  The problem with that?  Often those images are copyrighted.  So, here are two sites that offer thousands of free clip art images in the public domain:

WP Clip Art – www.wpclipart.com

Open Clip Art Library – http://openclipart.org/media/view/media/home
