Nine years ago, in another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I began this occasional “Ed Tech Digest” post where I share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech, including some Web 2.0 apps.
You might also be interested in THE BEST ED TECH RESOURCES OF 2020 – PART ONE, as well as checking out all my edtech resources.
Here are this week’s choices:
Colofon is a new online tool to help organizing writing projects, and lets you do one for free.
Web Stories is a new “plugin” from Google that lets you create interactive stories. However, it also appears that anyone can use it for creation by going here. It’s a site called Visual Stories. This was Google’s announcement about it.
It looks like Pinterest is trying to do something similar: Pinterest officially launches new Story Pins format in beta is from TechCrunch.
This looks interesting: Zoom’s earliest investors are betting millions on a better Zoom for schools is also from TechCrunch.
The Explore tool in Google Slides is my absolute favorite. It takes a simple slide (text + image) and shows you different format options. It saves me a ton of time trying to make my slides look nice. You'll find it in the bottom right corner 🤗💛 #edtech #teachinghacks #learning pic.twitter.com/5wx958GWw5
