Have you ever wanted to search through just educational sites? You can! There are several great portals to educational materials on the web. Some are free and some are subscription-based. Here are a few we recommend.
FREE and Deaf Education Specific -
This "Portal" into the world of Deaf Education is a fabulous resource for teachers, parents, and students becoming teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing. There is a calendar ready for all members to use, discussion forums, document sharing, and so much more!
Clerc National Deaf Education Center - http://clerccenter.gallaudet.edu/index.asp
Lots of information, research and information related to Deafness. Info To Go and TechEds Review are two of my favorite sections. TechEds Review has reviews of software programs by teachers of the deaf and other members of the deaf education community. Add reviews of your favorite software programs and let us know those that didn't work with your students and why.
This network of agencies has a wealth of information and resources related to the transition of deaf students from secondary to post-secondary settings. There are also great materials for post-secondary placements to learn how to best serve their young adults with hearing loss.
Don't forget our site - RMTC: D/HH - we continually work to bring the most technologically innovative research and information to your computer screen. ;-)
MarcoPolo: Internet Content for the Classroom -
The MarcoPolo program provides no-cost, standards-based Internet content for the K-12 teacher and classroom. Every state has contracted with MarcoPolo to provide training in using this site and its partner sites. Florida is currently beginning work to align the Sunshine State Standards with the activities and materials recommended by the MarcoPolo staff. [Note: This site was originally developed by WorldCom, but they are currently looking for funding to continue their services.] FREE

From the US Department of Education, this site is the key to one-stop,
any-stop access to high quality lesson plans, curriculum units and other
education resources on the Internet! FREE

Education Planet's K-12 resource portal provides teachers, students, and
parents with convenient access to quality, teacher-approved educational
resources. Though there are some subscription-based features for teachers (like tools for developing web pages, etc), most of the site is FREE. Very good resource!

educators. It provides a safe way for students to search the Internet for
