Lets Have Some Phun Already

Phun, a free open-source, cross-platform 2D physics simulator, makes you want to pick up blocks, or maybe crayons, and learn more about the way things fall and move under pressure. Written by a Swedish graduate student, the program teaches concepts of restitution and friction, so it's great to load up with the kids, but you'll probably find yourself sneaking a few turns by yourself at creating, and knocking over, shapes and lines. Phun is a free download for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux systems; hit the link for instructions on using and having, well, fun in Phun.

Dog Ate Your Zip Drive????

Ever heard the following excuses when kids don’t finish (word processed) papers on time?
-I don’t have a flash drive (I can’t save it to finish at home)
-I don’t have a printer at home
-I don’t have email (to email the document to myself)

The following site allows them to upload a document, picture, ppt., etc. file and then retrieve it later by simply going to the site they create. All they need is internet access to finish it at home. There is no registration or fee. It eliminates the previous excuses. Check it out!

A special thanks to Jody Conrad, United Teacher/CFF Coach, for this info.
