Useful sites (weekly)

  • Educational Software | Teaching with Comics | Bitstrips for Schools   This site offers software that would allow students to create their own comic strips. Not free
  • Here Be Dragons: An Introduction to Critical Thinking  “Here Be Dragons is a free 40 minute video introduction to critical thinking. It is suitable for general audiences and is licensed for free distribution and public display. Most people fully accept paranormal and pseudoscientific claims without critique as they are promoted by the mass media. Here Be Dragons offers a toolbox for recognizing and understanding the dangers of pseudoscience, and appreciation for the reality-based benefits offered by real science.”
