- The mysterious loss of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 generated
an overwhelming amount of news and speculation. This Web list
collects milestone reports - in news, images, social network
discussions, even speculations and false leads - to memorialize
this tragic and complex event. The links are arranged in roughly
chronological order, except where we need to keep related stories
together. Official statements, social network, map and tool sites
are mostly in the "Chops" section below.

- Maps are not just for driving! Interactive maps, Google
StreetView, and panoramas bring the world into our room. Most
literature, history, geography, art and music involve a location.
There are few tools more effective for "getting a feel" than
interactive maps and panoramic images.

- Science teaching is innovating beyond the Mythbusters and
Spangler Science. Videos now typically feature offbeat,
attention-grabbing, short YouTube videos with exaggerated action.
Their fast-pace, context-rich visuals make learning fun and
effective. However, organizing and categorizing remain problematic.
Search, friend and YouTube recommendations are the main ways of
finding them. Perhaps web lists can help weave them into meaningful

- Make your PowerPoint presentations more portable. Printing to
PDF preserves your font and format - in case you need to use your
files over different PCs and printers. Without the PDF format,
sharing or color-printing can mess up your meticulously laid-out,
richly-formatted, MS Office Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document.
This web list reviews free software options, including novaPDF,
cutePDF and doPDF.

To learn how to export or print Windows Office files in PDF format. But why save as PDF files? Microsoft's Office 2010 explains:
- Document looks the same on most computers,
- Preserves fonts, formatting, and images,
- Content cannot be easily changed,
- Free viewers are available on the Web.
If you have Office 2010, the easiest way may be to select the menu: File>Save & Send > Create PDF/XPS Document.

- Teachers these days have the "Robocob" essentially at their
finger tips to catch plagiarism. Several free Web services are
eager to help. Still, students are best helped if they understand
what is plagiarism, the philosophy against it, and how they can
avoid it. Further, a common question is: What is the difference
between copyright infringement and plagiarism.

For students of English literature, this web list links to:
- encyclopedic entry and overview,
- original text and translations,
- videos (parodies, animations, documentaries, etc),
- study guides,
- maps and location photos,
- anything that will bring additional dimensions to understanding the literature.
- audio, audiobook, children, high_school, learning_resource, librivox, mp3, music, teaching_resource
- This is a tentative collection of audio web sites - initial
research to be whittled down later. Why is audio search so messy
and confusing? Perhaps because preview is slow, usage rights are
complex, and programmers keep innovating around obstacles, not to
mention the great variety of contents. YouTube is still a good
source for school audio projects. But commercial users need to be
careful. Please make your suggestions.
