AASL Top 25 Websites
What are the top websites for teaching and learning? AASL lists 25 of their top websites. Very interesting to me is the fact that social networking sites (social media) were listed inside this top 25. Since we have been discussing this in our reference course and even had an in depth question and article related to this, I was excited to see Facebook, Twitter, Edublogs, TeacherTube, and other social media as a part of that. The AASL chooses websites that "honors websites, tools, and resources of exceptional value to inquiry-based teaching and learning as embodied in the American Association of School Librarians" To see the whole list of websites and check them out (I am!) go to http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/aasl/aboutaasl/bestlist/bestwebsites.cfm.
