Web based learning tools are often free and are great tools for educators to add to the teaching pencil case.

Quizlet offers both educators and learners a way to create their own flash cards for memorization. These cards can be shared and the website even offers a mobile app to add to your android or iDevice. Rote memory studying is hard but here's a tool that can be used both in and out of the classroom.
I originally thought that Google Earth was just for geography teachers, but there are so many different ways that you learn from this site. Google Lit Trips allows you to explores books and authors as if you're falling behind him/her. What a great way to explore an author or character. Google earth also allows you to view areas based on the year. Try this feature by Googling Rome and enjoy exploring ancient Rome today. This site can also be used as a virtual field trip and it doesn't cost anything!
I'm not a science teacher, but I wish there was this WBLT when I was studying chemistry. This not only is a great visual for studying but it also gives various information for students of all levels. It even has links to videos and other resources.
I happen to love grammar books, but there never seems to be one present when I need it. What was that rule about dangling modifiers? Share this site with your colleagues and students so that they can find that answer to their burning writing question.
