Here’s some more info on fake news and how to detect it.

Data has become an extremely important topic, whether you’re talking about serving students, or serving a particular population. And now, if you’re serving cheese. Check out the Wine and Cheese Map to search for a type of cheese and then get suggestions for wine pairings. You can filter by moisture level, country of origin and type of wine. You. Are. Welcome.

Eyewitness To History is an ad-supported site where you can browse by event and then read first person accounts.

Move over, Steven Spielberg…now everyone can build their own dinosaur (I hope that reference is clear…). BrainPop Jr’s Contruct-a-Saurus site gives you the tools to build a dinosaur by choosing a head, body, tail, etc. You then test the beast to see if it’ll stand up – and get feedback from the site as to what needs to be changed. This is a great site for young kids, and there are lessons plans for teachers, too.

Just because it’s a project doesn’t make it “project-based.” Read more about the difference here.

This is awesome. Apparently there’s a new thing on the ‘net where people color old b&w photos. Some of the results are just stunning! Check out the Reddit colorized history site.
