A good and useful resource must be informative and easily accessible. Paddling.net is exactly that, due to the fact that it is on the internet for anyone to access, it has numerous video tutorials of how to canoe, a list of manufacturers of canoes, many articles and many other useful topics that have to do with canoeing, kayaking and other pieces of gear.
This website is filled with important information on canoeing. The most useful aspect of it for an outdoor education class is the techniques. They vary in levels, they are practical and the instructions are very clear. It is a great site for equipment and features articles for us to use as well.
This resource is recommended for students because of the instructional videos and articles it has to offer. This website could have been useful for myself when searching for articles, and will most likely be a main source next year in outdoor education. My main difficulty while canoeing is steering, and I will make sure to review this website before starting our canoe unit next year. This website could also serve as a use for buying equipment because it can direct you to other websites that sell canoeing/kayaking equipment.
In conclusion, this website is recommended for all students who are in search for an article, to perfect a technique and searching for new equipment. This resource has everything you would need for our canoeing unit.
