This entry's going to be short, as it's officially happy hour and I'm still at my desk looking at pictures of the teabaggers. Clearly we need to be spending a lot more on education in this country, which brings me to our resource today.
AMSER, the Applied Math and Science Repository, is "a portal of educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use. AMSER is funded by the National Science Foundation as part of the National Science Digital Library, and is being created by a team of project partners led by Internet Scout."
Obviously designed by librarians, AMSER's resources are searchable and browseable by both LC subject headings and the GEM subject classification scheme.
There is a rich variety of educational resources for high school and college teachers and learners in this repository:
AT&T Knowlege Network
Finally learn those irregular Spanish verbos
American Garden Museum
Delights of Chemistry
When I was in school we didn't have any cool resources like this to help us learn. In fact, when I was in school we didn't even have the INTERNET. We just had vax terminals and 2400 baud modems and our trusty TI-81 scientific calculators with infrared data transfer capabilities that I programmed many, many physics and chemistry formulas into before our professors stopped letting us use them during exams.
Good thing you never grow out of being a nerd. :)
