Check out the BBC’s Blast


Came across Blast a few weeks ago and bookmarked it for later review. I’m glad I did. This is a BBC site for teens. The section of the site that caught my attention is the Tips and Tools page that includes advise and a variety of strategies for encouraging creative thinking, project planning, collaborative action, showcasing your work, for what to do when things do go well.

Don’t miss the Digital Toolbox that includes videos and tutorials on using the Web for research, using digital processes to make creative works, and promoting yourself, your content, and creative work online. All in all, there’s a lot here for middle and high school students to see and read, some of which could be printed out for classroom handouts.
