AASL Best Websites
for Teaching and Learning


Each year the AASL Best Websites for Teaching and Learning is compiled by a committee of the American Association of School Librarians (AASL). These 25 websites foster innovation, creativity, student participation, and collaboration in learning. They also support inquiry-based teaching and learning as outlined in AASL's Standards for the 21st-Century Learner.

I've selected several of these Web 2.0 teaching tools and given you some information and resources to help you get started in using them with your students. Other sites will be added so please be sure to check back often.

Check these pages out for information and resources for using some of AASL's premiere sites for teaching and learning.

The complete list of the AASL Best Websites for this year and past years can be found here.

AASL states that these websites "are honored due to their exemplary histories of authoritative, dynamic content and curricular relevance. They are free, web-based sites that are user-friendly and encourage a community of learners to explore and discover and provide a foundation to support 21st-century teaching and learning."

The AASL Best Websites are organized by categories that include Media Sharing, Digital Storytelling, Manage & Organize, Social Networking & Communication, Content Resources, and Curriculum Collaboration.

Common Core State Standards (CCSS) - Technology and media literacy are embedded throughout the standards and not treated as a separate component. The CCSS uses technology to enhance reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use.

In our world today there are many new online tools, resources, and technologies available to help students become college, life and career ready. Many of the sites on AASL's list support different strands in the CCSS. These sites are great ways to motive, engage, and help your students achieve.
