Finding Education Online

Came across a great Wired article entitled "The Top Web-Based Education Resources."

While this is far from a comprehensive list of educational resources available online, it provides a concise fly-by of some of the top options. Here were my favorites:

Curriki - Uses wiki technology to enable educators to share educational materials.

Kiddix - Not sure if the content found herein is as substantial as some of the other sites (they focus heavily on games), I was impressed by their focus on kids. I think it's important to not just create online educational resources for parents to use with their kids; we need to make sure we're empowering kids to find their own path.

Idealist.org - Not so much educational as inspirational, but I always appreciate efforts to inspire younger generations to get engaged and try to make a difference, which is what this site aims to do.
