Technology Thursday! Website Week- NBC LEARN

Hi there! Linking up with Teaching Trio for Website Week in the Technology Thursday Link Up!

This linky is an awesome one to keep up with to learn about new technology resources! 

A new resource that I have come across is NBC Learn. There are oodles of high interest videos that could be incorporated in the classroom. What caught my eye to this site in the first place is the Science of Football section. I have been working on a little "Football Science" mini-unit and came across this site while working on it. The Science of Football section has information about force, motion, healthy eating, and more! Also, with each video are lesson ideas! Coolness. This could be a great introduction or review of science topics. #reallifeapplicationsrule

Another section that I particularly like is the "Writers Speak to Kids" section. Numerous authors have little videos about the craft of writing. Mo Willems is on there (um hello, awesome!) Judy Schachner, Ridley Pearson, Doreen Cronin, these are authors of the books you use to teach to the craft of writing, how cool is a live interview talking about the process? This is a great resource for Writing Workshop and I'm totally pumped to implement it! 

Have you heard of or used NBC Learn before? If so, let me know in the comments! If you know of another killer resource, let me know too! I LOVE hearing from you!

    I just went to go link up to Technology Thursday and I was going to write about NewsELA too! It's the BEST :) I use articles from it every week. I guess I'll have to think of a new technology tip for next week!
