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.
Here are this week’s choices:
Conotes lets you take notes and then automatically turns them into a PDF version of Cornell Notes. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Effective Note-Taking Strategies – Help Me Find More.
Resumemaker seems like a pretty easy way for students to create resumes – it seems well-scaffolded. I’m adding it to The Best Places For Students To Write Their Resumes.
Image To Sketch is a fun site where you can turn any photo into a pencil-like drawing.
Our Fourth Annual Student Podcast Contest comes from The NY Times Learning Network.
That Spotty Wi-Fi? There’s $100 Billion to Fix It. is from The NY Times.
This is from Google:
Are you struggling to help your child with their math homework? Don’t worry, Google has your back. Type the equation, like “x^2-3x-4=0”, into the Search bar or take a picture through Lens in the Google App to find step-by-step explanations in over 70 languages. We’re expanding support to even more types of math equations through our partnerships with Symbolab, Mathway (a Chegg Service), and Tiger Algebra which is coming. You’ll also be able to access a variety of explanations for how to solve math problems, increasing the chances that one of them may stick.
I’m adding it to The Best Apps, Online Tools & Other Resources For Math.
