Thanks for the review. I took the hint and went to the site (http://www.think.com/) and noticed it's connection with ThinkQuest, and then, at the bottom of the page, a link to an ISTE "award."
There, they mention:
Oracle worked closely with ISTE to co-develop nine new lessons that clearly provide teachers with instructional models for using Think.comís free online environment to meet both technology and subject-area curricular standards. As a result, educators can more easily use Think.com in the classroom everyday to meet technology standards.
Has anyone explored these ? I've just run into their free tutorials and will explore these, and was wondering if "real" users got more training.†
