This site was set up to enable students and teachers to use materials online in short, byte-size chunks when they had a free period.

The site includes over 70 self-assessment exercises for AQA and OCR AS and A2 courses. These are mostly designed for students to check their understanding of key issues. They include multiple-choice with feedback on correct and incorrect answers, matching items exercises, crosswords, hangman exercises and wordsearches.

There is also a teacher section with links to other sites.

The site is part of the National Grid for Learning.

A new website for Geography teachers has just been launched. It is called GeoInteractive and has two main aims:

The first aim is to act as a focal point for teachers to contribute classroom resources of all kinds that can be shared e.g. worksheets, photos, powerpoint presentations, etc.. The second aim is to provide interactive resources that teachers can use with digital projectors and interactive whiteboards. The URL is:

GeoInteractive

There are sample pages that everyone can have a look at before the site goes fully live on January 1st 2004. I would be interested in any positive and/or constructive opinions on the new website.

Best wishes

GeoDave

New project material and tasks being added all the time - KS3, KS4, KS5, in response to my own needs and the feedback I get from students and teachers. Currently around 2000-plus page views per day from some interesting world-wide locations ! - Design And Technology On The Web e-mail :design-technology@lineone.net

Sociology Central (http://www.sociology.org.uk) is a site aimed at AS / A2 Sociology teachers and students. If memory serves, it's been available, in one form or another, for about 8 years (you can check-out some past versions at http://www.archive.org/).

It's got about 2000 pages of information and receives between 2500 - 3000 unique hits each day (a proportion of which are spiders, but I won't tell anyone if you don't).

It's an NGFL-approved site. I'm not sure how significant this is, but I suppose they've got to do something for all the money they receive - speaking of which, I maintain the site in the spare time I have outside my "real job" (a term I use loosely) as an FE lecturer.

In basic terms it offers 3 main things:

1. Downloadable resources (mainly in the form of Notes): This section is a legacy from the site's origins as a cheap and cheerful method of distributing information in the days before the magic of browsers that could adequately display graphics...

2. Links: Reviews of web sites that contain something of interest to A-level sociologists.

3. On-Line resources: This section has developed as the power of browsers has increased and offers a range of resources that can be used on-line.

My main site has been running for a few years now. It has downloadable worksheets, loads of resources for science, and flash materials...

The address is www.dannynicholson.co.uk

I run a couple of other sites that are of interest.

One is the Big Brown Envelope, which is an online bank of resources and ideas to help with ICT in schools... address is www.bigbrownenvelope.co.uk

Also check out www.sciencestuff.co.uk - which is still a little embryonic, but has some additional Science resources on there.

My History site Historygcse.org is a site primarily designed for students to revise SHP GCSE History. It features revision tips, interactive lessons, activities and tests, exam practice and exemplar answers and an ask a teacher facility. I also use weblogs linked from the site to tutor and mentor exam groups.

I have been recently developing a Key Stage 3 area of the site which is still very much work in development

I started this sight a couple of years ago to help deliver the key stage two science curriculum- at the time I couldn't find what needed on the net so decided it might be quicker to develop my own materials.

Hope it is of use to others.

Feedback is always welcome.

ps.

the url of this site has now changed to

"http://www.acocksgreen.bham.sch.uk/sciencezone/science/ScienceZone.html"

If you link to this site please amend any links as needed- Thanks

ICT4LT - ICT for Language Teachers: The ICT4LT website is the outcome of a Socrates-funded project coordinated by Thames Valley University. It is currently the Web's largest single group of freely available training resources in ICT for language teachers. It consists of a total of 15 modules at three different levels in four different languages (English, Italian, Finnish and Swedish), plus an additional category for new modules. The website has proved extremely popular both with practising language teachers and with teachers undergoing initial teacher training in university departments of education. The site receives an average of 500-plus hits per day and has been used widely as a support for the delivery of face-to-face and online training courses in ICT for language teachers. The site has been accessed not only from EU countries but also from over 70 other countries throughout the world. The ICT4LT project has been presented at numerous conferences, including EUROCALL 2000 in Scotland and IALLT 2001 in Houston, Texas. The ICT4LT website is updated by Graham Davies (Visiting Professor, Thames Valley University) on a weekly basis and continues to expand.

This is a site aimed mainly at the brighter GCSE students. It is a reference site for Science practical/coursework. It contains a detailed guide to planning experiments, obtaining results, graph drawing, concluding and evaluating. It also includes a brief guide to using graph drawing packages for generating graphs with lines of best fit.

An on-line calculator allows students to enter their marks and then automatically calculate a best mark total and estimated grade. This has been updated to include the new grade boundaries from the 2003 exams.

New developments include a reference section that so far includes information about SI units and resistance.

My aim is to provide information that is not readily available elsewhere, and to link to sites that provide a good level of information on relevant topics.
