7 Little-Known Tech Tools Teachers Should Try Out
There are hundreds of thousands of apps, tools, and websites that teachers could learn from. But, well, teachers don’t have that kinda time. In fact, the lack of time is a big issue when it comes to education technology integration. Handing off an iPad to a teacher and saying ‘there now you have an iPad, go revolutionize learning!’ is how most districts still approach integration.
So in an effort to boil down the most effective (even if they’re not the most popular) education technology tools, many people like myself test out and recommend just a small fraction of the many offerings out there. A terrific blogger I follow, Jacqui Murray, did just that when she recommended 7 tech tools that educators should be using. (That article is great, check it out.)
Since we’ve established that teachers are short on time but not on resources, these kind of articles are great for a connected educator on the go. But you know what’s even better? A useful blog post turned into a video! Who doesn’t love that? That video is embedded above and worth a quick watch and courtesy of the fine folks at TeachHub.
Most of the tools are not very well-known or at least not overly used and talked about. If you use them, how have your experiences been? Any other tools you’d recommend be added to this list?
