REVIEW: Infinite Thinking Machine

Infinite Thinking Machine is an online place for K-12 educators and students with a blog, an Internet TV show, and other resources. Though the site is sponsored by Google, dont overlook this great resource of tech tools & information. The well qualified authors highlight innovative instructional methods, interviews with experts, and real stories from the classroom. Sponsors include CUE , Discovery Educator Network, ISTE, Google for Educators, etc. The goal of the site is to spark dialogue and help educators explore a wide range of innovative ideas and tools, and show how these digital tools can impact student learning in a meaningful way.. its about “learning, thinking, communicating, and creativity – not technology.”

The Blog postings give tips & lots of ideas for using technology in your classroom, and with great comments from real educators. I learned about some new tech tools I hadnt heard of previously such as PageFlakes.

The Stuff section contains pdfs of “Education Product Guides” (Yeah they are google based so its google products!) and presentations – easy to use and very useful! Example: Blogger in the Classroom; Google Earth in the Classroom; SketchUp in the Classroom

The Shows section has fun videos covering one tool/topic that can immediately be used in the classroom. And even with a slow DSL connection in rural Colorado I could download and view videos pretty quickly. There are also show notes listed below so you can take the easy way out and just visit the links discussed in the video.

Check it out and show your teachers:  http://www.infinitethinking.org
