One of the top goals for 19Pencils is to co-create a portal for educational resources so that making assignments or just pointing students to exciting and relevant content on the web is a snap. To that end we make it easy for you to add your own list of educational websites. In addition, we provide access to almost six million flashcard sets (thanks to Quizlet) so that you can add flashcards to your favorites list or your public page. As we grow we will be adding more and more resources. Recently we added DonorsChoose, so that when you’re searching for “endangered species” for example, you might come across a classroom project that gives you great ideas. Eventually we want to support classrooms connecting directly with other classrooms in truly innovative ways.
And now we have another treat: content from thousands of blogs and news sites, twenty specialized sources, and much, much more from zemanta.
Folks, we’re just getting started.
