The Lawrence Hall of Science. 24/7 Science (Kidsite)

The Lawrence Hall of Science is a public science center that offers hands-on science exhibits, designs curriculum, aids professional development, and offers after school science resources to students of all ages. The Hall was established in 1968 in honor of Ernest Orlando Lawrence, the University of California's first Nobel laureate. The Hall is located in the hills above the University of California, Berkeley campus.

Since the Hall opened to the public, learning by doing has been core to all of their programs. To address the challenges in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education today, they have created a comprehensive set of programs to help increase the quality and quantity of great science learning that kids get both in and out of school.

Their Kidsite includes four sections:

AfterSchool KidzScience
Check Out Science
Explore Your World
Roadside Heritage

There you will find activities, games, quizzes, videos & podcasts, etc.

#ELTchat started in September 2010 when a group of ELT professionals began to use Twitter to discuss topics of their interest. It began with the aim of creating a freely available social network for ELT professionals offering mutual support and opportunities for Continuous Professional Development.

Now, every Wednesday at 12 pm (GMT) and 21.00 pm (GMT), ELT teachers from all over the world log into their Twitter account and for one hour hold an online discussion on a topic they have selected. The conversations can be followed by following the #ELTchat hashtag on Twitter.

Every Saturday, one of the moderators will put up a blog post on the #ELTchat Blog asking teachers who follow #ELTchat to propose some topics for the next chats. #ELTchat followers can go to that post and suggest topics in the comments under the blog post.

On Sunday evening, the moderators review the topics and create an online poll. #ELTchat followers are then invited to vote on the topics until Wednesday morning. Once the poll closes the top two topics become the subjects of the discussions.

After each chat, a transcript is posted on the #ELTchat wiki

Every month, a podcast, featuring an interview with one of their followers, interviews with well-known ELT authors and a quick summary of the past month's #ELTchats on the podcasts page.

Songs, songs, songs (for young learners)

Nos hemos detenido en ocasiones en diversos recursos relacionados con las canciones y la enseñanza del inglés, normalmente dirigidos al alumnado de primaria o secundaria. 

En este caso os presentamos una recopilación de canciones en Flash desde la página de Angles365. Hacía ya bastante tiempo que no presentábamos un recurso más bien orientado a la etapa de infantil y a primer ciclo de primaria. Os recordamos al respecto Super Simple Songs, bastante similar a lo que podéis encontrar en los siguientes enlaces:

Quizlet was founded in 2005 by 15-year-old Andrew Sutherland for a high-school French class. He wanted an easy-to-use tool for learning vocabulary. He built Quizlet for himself, shared it with his friends, and it grew from there.

Quizlet is now among the largest educational websites in the world. Millions of teachers and students use it. 

As a memorization tool, Quizlet lets registered users create "sets" of terms customized for their own needs. These sets of terms can then be studied under several study modes.
