Teacher education-specific resources
- SMART Board resources - information for faculty and teacher candidates about obtaining needed software and resources for using the boards in Mooney and area K-12 classrooms.
- Barbara Taylor's lists in Diigo - These public lists of links are organized topically and always evolving. Diigo is a social bookmarking service that allows registered users to organize and annotate online bookmarks, create lists, and make them public (or not). The word "social" is used to describe the service because from each bookmarked site, one can follow a link to see all other users who have bookmarked that same site and then see what those users (who possibly share interests) have also bookmarked.
- Staff accounts for teacher candidates during senior year internships - learn more about resources and opportunities available to senior teacher candidates during their year-long placement. Staff accounts with the local school system allow candidates to take advantage of many school-based instructional tools as well as communicate professsionally with students, their families, and other teachers and administrators.
