Digital Learning Suite: Thinkfinity

According to their website: Thinkfinity is "a free comprehensive digital learning platform which makes available to teachers nine discipline-specific, standards-based web sites that include lessons for teachers, activities to use in and out of the classroom, games for young children and teens, adult literacy resources and reference materials for anyone in the education field, as well as for parents and after-school practitioners. Educational content partners for Thinkfinity include: Arts Edge, Econ Edlink, Edsitement, Illuminations, Literacy Network, Read Write Think, Science Net Links, Simithsonian National Museum of American History, and National Geographic Xpeditions." (The above description can be found on their website- www.thinkfinity.org)
Initially I was reluctant to present this resource about Thinkfinity.org, because surely everyone must already know about this digital learning suite. Then to justify my writing about this resource, I am reminded that there are new teachers hired on a regular basis. I also hope that there are veteran teachers for whom my blog entry this week will help to jolt their memory and cause them to rediscover http://www.thinkfinity.org/ as a valuable resource.

Thanks for the mention of the ReadWriteThink site. We are very proud of what we have to offer! If you are interested, we pay educators to publish lesson plans and share teaching ideas. Let me know if you would like more information!
