Student Resources

The web’s best free virtual classroom/social learning platform. This site is used by many Madison teachers and millions around the world to improve instruction and connect student learning to the digital world.

Purdue University Online Writing Lab
This is one of the best and most comprehensive collections of information and help for writing and research.  It is especially helpful for students who need help with MLA, APA, etc. formatting.

The Madhawk Library
Madison Jr/Sr High School's library web page run by Ms. Fultz.  A great place to do research or access other library necessities.

INFOhio, a virtual K-12 library which transforms teaching and learning by connecting educational resources with the power of information technology.  This is one of the best places for students to start when researching.

CK-12 provides access to high-quality, customizable educational content in multiple modalities suited to multiple student learning styles and levels. Basically free high quality lessons for anyone, anywhere. Great site.

Khan Academy
In case you haven’t seen Sal Khan on TV every other night here is the scoop. It’s the website that started it all. Learn anything (school related) anytime, anywhere. CK12, learnzillion, braingenie, mentormob, etc. were all started with Khanacademy as their influence.

Learn Zillion
Similar to Khanacademy, but with less content. Good news is that what they do have is more suited to teacher use in the classroom. Their premade slide show (PowerPoint) lessons are great and allow teachers to customize. Common Core aligned.

Virtual Nerd
Need help in math or science? Virtual nerd is an online tutoring service. It’s free for teachers, but unfortunately there is a small cost for students. Check it out and see if it meets your needs.

Free online college courses, great if all you want to do is learn. Also check out MIT’s courses and many other universities are doing this. They are called MOOCs.
