Free Learning Tools, Games, and More

[Photo by ♥Sage (resting… finally!).]

Browsing the Internet, I came across a slideshow called 101 Free Learning Tools, which explores “the idea that there is at least one excellent free learning tool (or site) for every learning problem, need or issue.”

Of course, many of these sites I already knew, at least by reputation. But there are plenty of interesting places that were new to me.

Scrolling down the page, I saw that Zaid has posted “an updated text version, which… includes more than 140 useful learning tools and sites. Have fun learning :)”

A Free Learning Tool for Every Learning Problem?

Which led me to…

Yet Another Must-Read Blog

My ancient computer has gone on strike yet again, taking with it all my “To Do” notes, blog post ideas, and the people I was planning to add to my blogroll. (I really need to check out some of those 101 tools!) Meanwhile, working on my daughter’s computer while she’s away at school, I am starting from scratch — but this time, with the best of intentions to blog things immediately when I rediscover them.

I wonder how long that will last?

  1. I’ll have to check these out. We all have our strengths. I did OK in math at school, but it’s not my strength. I’m happier with social studies and biology. This is one of the wonderful things about the homeschooling community — so much to share and learn.

  2. Wanna trade? I’d rather do math than history or science any day. I majored in physics, but what I really liked about it was all the story problems. 🙂
