Ohio Tech Conference Day Two

Have you discovered INFOhio? 
Has it been a while since you last visited INFOhio?
I have two words for you. 



In a very tiny nutshell, INFOhio is a collection of state funded electronic resources free to all Ohio K-12 students and educators. A username and password are required for home access. (username:edgewood password:cougars) 

You really need to take some time to explore on your own, but I'll send you in the right direction.  

You will find materials for grades 6-8 here and grades 9-12 here.   Subject links for the Academic Content Standards can be found here for grades 6-8  and here for grades 9-12.

Take a look at the other resources you will find:

  • Atlases and Maps
  • Biographies
  • Dictionaries and Thesauruses
  • E-books
  • Encyclopedias
  • Foreign Language
  • Images and Pictures
  • Learning Activities
  • Magazine and Journal Articles 
  • Multimedia
  • Newspaper Articles
  • Primary Source Documents
  • Quotations
  • Test Practice and Tutorials
  • Timelines

Look what I found today for our students....
GO! Ask,Act, Achieve is a highly interactive online journey that introduces our middle school  and high school students  to research projects.

R4S  Research 4 Success course is designed for high school students grades 11 and 12 to complete a project.   The course material may also be used by college and university students and faculty.

    I hope you can find some time to check out INFOhio! Let me know if you would like more information.
P.S.  Mrs. Potteiger has been an INFOhio fan for many years and would be happy to help you!
