Those of you who visit Free Technology for Teachers directly may have already noticed, but for those of you who read this only in RSS, I’d like to point out a new element in the side bar of the blog. Starting today and running until April 30, you will see an offer to download a free virtual field trip planning kit from Simple K12.
Applications for Education
Just like going on a real field trip, taking students on a good virtual field trip takes planning. The virtual field trip planning kit is designed to help you develop and plan effective virtual field trips. The ideas put forth in the kit can be applied to almost any K-12 classroom.
In the interest of full disclosure, Simple K12 did not pay for the placement. We simply swapped blog space, as they have a logo for Free Technology for Teachers on their blog now too. I looked over the kit and I would not give it valuable top-of-the-fold placement if I didn’t think the kit was a good free resource.
