Malabar ICT News

2014 - No. 1

Introduction

The Malabar ICT News will be published each fortnight. Please send contributions to timothy.crawford1@det.nsw.edu.au.


Contributions can include recommendations for apps, webtools, websites, Notebook ideas and tricks, student work samples etc.


Each edition will feature a minimum of 1 English resource, 1 Maths resource, 1 Cybersafety resource. Hopefully I will also be able to add professional learning links on a regular basis.

English Resources

AC Reading Units

This website is full of reading units that have been developed from ES1 - S4 using the NSW English Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum. I don't know who to give credit to, but it's amazing and highly recommended.

Maths Resources

Sheppard Maths

The Sheppard site has many interactive activities for Maths set out via topic. Do take care with topics such as money and measurement as they reference $US and imperial measurements. The Sheppard site also has resources for other KLAs as well.

Cybersafety

Fake Social Media

Help your kids learn how to use social media and discuss cybersafety when using social media by using these websites to create fake social media accounts.


You could even have students make fake SMS, twitter, facebook or pinterest pages as reading activities.
