[TIPS] - Water on the Web and a Nettrekker tip

http://waterontheweb.org/
- - snip - -
Water on the Web (WOW) helps college and high school students understand and solve real-world environmental problems using advanced technology.

WOW is a complete package containing two sets of curricula, data from many lakes and rivers nationwide, extensive online primers, data interpretation and Geographic Information System Tools, and additional supporting materials.

Bonus:
When you log into your Nettrekker account you'll find a button called "Open Read Aloud" above and to the right of where you enter your keywords for searching. Click it to Open that feature. Then, just highlight a paragraph or sentence or even a word and wait a few seconds while it loads. Wow!- it reads that text to you!
 
Know any students who could use that feature?
 
Don't have a Nettrekker account yet? Ask your Tech Director for the information - or email me.

*** still waiting for someone to tag a del.icio.us site with "for:jgates513" - who will be the first? ***
