This weekend, educators from around the world will begin to gather in San Diego for the 33rd annual conference of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) This conference was formerly called the National Educational Computing Conference(NECC), and is held each year to "discover how educators from around the world are using innovative technologies to help students expand their horizons." You can visit the conference website here: http://www.iste.org/conference.

They've set up a blog roll so you can see what colleagues are writing, a virtual conference for those who can't make it to San Diego, and even a social Ning to help you make connections with other educators. Even if you don't belong to ISTE, there are lots of ways to connect with educators and find out what's working in classrooms around the country.

The educational networking site, Edmodo, is similar to Facebook, but for educators to provide a way to connect with students and parents as well as with each other. You can find Excel Math (and AnsMar Publishers, Inc.) at http://www.edmodo.com/publisher/excelmath. Be sure to visit our collections and download some free resources for your Edmodo library. You can join communities for math, common core, special ed, technology, and lots more. Plus, you can connect with teachers from your own school, post lessons for your students to access, or avoid your coworkers completely and simply use it as a classroom tool and a resource for new ideas from other educators.

This summer ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is offering some free Boot Camp webinars, and the one on July 24 happens to be on technology.

**"Educators looking for new web tools to engage their students should attend this presentation. During his webinar, Fisher will explore some of the exciting web tools of the moment and explain how educators can use them for instruction. In addition, he will discuss specific tasks and appropriate tool choices, as well as share helpful examples that have been implemented in real classrooms."**

*Virtual Summer Camp: The Newest Tools on the Web to Explore for Instruction*, presented by Mike Fisher.For videos and tutorials your students can access for the classroom, for tutoring, and at home, the Khan Academy has some easy-to-use videos for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, algebra, and pre-algebra. If you're considering flipping your math lessons, this would be a good resource. If you teach Grades 5 and 6, you may want to bookmark the video resource page from Excel Math with classroom videos using Projectable Lessons. (Read more about Projectable Lessons here.)

We've just touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to online resources for math classrooms. If you have additional resources or web links you'd like us to consider adding to this list, just leave a comment and we'll check them out (we do review them for their educational value). Watch for a future post with suggested apps, blogs, and more websites. In the meantime, grab your computer (or e-device) and start your summer with some math web surfing.
