Add to My LockerWeb Site
Free Rice

At this website, you can practice your vocabulary and contribute to a worthwhile charity at the same time. Initially, you will see a word and four possible synonyms. When you select the correct synonym, 20 grains of rice are added to your bowl for donation to hungry people. If you have been successful, you will be given a harder word to match. There are 50 levels of words in the database.

"Research has borne out the potential for Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as an aid to educators in support of each other, and, to improve the teaching and learning environment by modeling the self-organization and self-determination that are hallmarks of independent, lifelong learners. These characteristics help to reinforce the idea that everyone at school is both a teacher and a learner. My eCoach is the best tool of which I am aware that can support these self-organized, peer-learning groups.

Without question, My eCoach is a one-of-a-kind innovation that similar Open Source tools find difficult to approximate generally because there does not exist the same level of customer service. What My eCoach has made unique, no other has come close to creating the kind of safe, scaffolding environment of this system. Although a proprietary system, My eCoach is an "open environment" with the ability to integrate other school and district tools including Open Source tools."
