EdTech Links of the Week - 10-3-22

Each week I keep an eye out for the latest edtech resources through blogs, social media, podcasts, videos, user groups, and more. I then try to reshare these resources in many ways.

One way I share these is here on the blog in these "EdTech Links of the Week" posts. See below to explore the latest batch of resources, and be sure to share with others who may benefit.

If you want to make sure you don't miss new resources, you can:

And as always, please let me know of any resources that you recommend. I would love to learn from you!

This week I have 5 new resources from around the Internet and 2 new resources from my blog.

New resources from around the Internet...

🧰 PBS Learning Media


Free collection of curated, standards-aligned videos, interactives, lessons plans, and more across all subject areas and grade levels.



🐍 Descent of the Serpent


Online educational game from Google Arts & Culture where you learn about ancient Mesoamerican cultures and face mythological figures who’ll test your knowledge collected throughout the adventure.



🚀 Our Solar System


Interactive website from Google Arts & Culture with 3D models of bodies in our solar system, pictures, articles, puzzles, activities, and more.



🐢 Turtle Diary


Free website with 1000+ educational games and learning activities for Pre-K through 5th grade in math, language arts, science, geography, and more.



🖐 ClassroomQ


Free web tool for schools where students can add their name to a virtual queue to indicate they need help and ask questions, and the teacher can organize and track the student questions.



And new resources from "Control Alt Achieve"...

🕸️ 4 Googley Halloween Activities


Over the years I have created a bunch of Halloween-themed educational activities with Google tools including:

     ðŸŽƒ Build a Jack-O-Lantern with Google Slides
     ðŸ‘» Halloween Rebus Stories with Emojis and Google Docs
     ðŸ¦‡ Halloween Drag and Drop Poetry with Google Drawings
     ðŸ’€ Skittles and Google Sheets Math Activities

Check out my blog post to get your own free copies of the templates, as well as detailed directions for each project. If you do any of these activities I would love to hear how they go and see some of your students' creations. I welcome any suggestions for improvement or extensions to make these activities even better!



🍬 Skittles & Sheets Math Activities


I recently made an interactive, self-checking Google Sheets template called "Skittles and Sheets" which lets students practice skills including:

     ðŸ¤” Estimating
     ðŸ– Counting
     ⚖️ Comparing
     ➕ Adding
     ➗ Dividing
     ðŸ“Š Graphing

You can get your own copy of the template at the link above, as well as detailed directions and a short video walkthrough of the activities. This could be fun for any time of year, but could also work well for a Halloween-themed candy activity. I would love to hear your thoughts and any extension ideas.
