Ten 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 TWO, as well as checking out all my edtech resources.
Here are this week’s choices:
From Headache to Helpful—Teachers on Using TikTok in the Classroom is from Edutopia.
Record Annotated Video Presentations With PresentationTube’s Chrome Extension is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to Best Tools For Making Screencasts.
Apple launches the Apple Teacher Portfolio recognition, updates Schoolwork and Classroom apps is from TechCrunch.
Last week, I mentioned Google’s new Threadit tool and described it as FlipGrid-like. Richard Byrne has a good post and video titled 5 Ideas for Using Threadit in School. I’m adding it to The Best Sites To Practice Speaking English.
Help students who are Deaf or hard of hearing to customize their learning tools with live captions, the latest feature from @Chrome. Click the link below and learn how to adjust accessibility preferences ⬇️ #a11y https://t.co/zhfwl67uw4
