Wired: Education 2.0: Top Online Learning Resources

Want an education? Open up a browser. With the information available
online, you could probably get a complete education without ever
leaving your house.
This is how the fifth and final article of Wired's weeklong series on educational tools for the digital age begins. It highlights eight websites that it considers to be a selection of the best educational resources on the net. Below is the link.

The Top Web-Based Education Resources

Here are a few I would add to the list:
  • Brainpop - Tim and his robot friend Moby do an excellent job explaining concepts in short animated Flash movies. Great for introducing or reinforcing concepts.
  • United Streaming - Digital video on-demand. Not as much fun as Tim and Moby.
  • Math Forum - A great resource for math teachers and students. Check out Dr. Math.
  • National Library of Virtual Manipulatives - A great way to get kids engaged with math using the net.
