This is a link to the video I made about the Web 2.0 site Freerice.com. I can see myself becoming addicted to this site. It is such a wonderful way to learn while attempting to end world hunger. For every correct answer you get, 10 grains of rice are being donated.
Freerice.com is a free site that you can immediately sign up for and start using. There are 6 subject areas, Art, Language, English, Chemistry, Geography and Math. There are sub sections within these subject areas. As you click on the subsections, you are directed to multiple choice questions.
For each question that you get correct, 10 grains of rice are donated as an effort to help end world hunger. This is a great way to tie these subjects into a lesson and have students go on the site and play. As they become proficient, they begin to feel good about themselves for getting the answers correct and becoming proactive world citizens as they help to end world hunger.
