  1. I am collecting my favorite free websites by grade level at http://ckms.symbaloo.com. Hopefully you will find a new resource there.

    • Hi Elizabeth,
      What a great tool, I love your ‘symbaloo’, thanks for sharing it with me!!I will certainly check out your links as there are heaps of sites there I could use with my students as well. Excellent idea to put sites into grade levels for easy access for your students and parents to access.
      Is this your first role as a technology teacher?
      What other teaching roles have had previously?
      I’ve had a look at your site, it looks great!! I will share it with my students, they are always interested to see what school is like for students in another country.
      Best of luck with your new role.
      Cheers
      Raff
