Science websites provide two opportunities – access to content to keep subject knowledge up to date, and specific information about teaching science. Many of these are written by teachers for other teachers – often as a blog (a website where entries are in date order). Note as with Twitter, not every article you read on these sites may be Science related.
I’ve listed below some of the more useful science websites I’ve found – if you know of any I’ve missed off, do add them in the comments below.

Some of the websites will offer you RSS feeds (with a little orange symbol) which means you can read updates from these sites without having to visit them – you just need an RSS reader. Google Reader is my RSS feed reader of choice – you simply ask Reader to follow the sites you are interested in and you can read the updates for all the websites you subscribe to within one tool (from any computer). Look here for helpful videos.
You can click here and see the articles I’ve read and thought were worth sharing (and you can even subscribe to this list in Google Reader!).
