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 2021 – PART ONE, as well as checking out all my edtech resources.
Here are this week’s choices:
Lekh is an online interactive notebook that seems pretty easy to use.
HyperBeam lets you search the web or watch a video with a group.
Vocodes lets you type in a text and have a celebrity voice say it.
Padlet has made some big changes.
Yokanban looks like a nice tool like Padlet but, for now at least, it doesn’t look like you can include images (other than as attachments). I’m adding it to The Best Online Virtual “Corkboards” (or “Bulletin Boards”).
Education Galaxy lets teachers create classrooms for free in math or reading, K-8. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress.
ClassPlanit is a new lesson planning tool. I’m adding it to The Best Places On The Web To Write Lesson Plans — Who Have I Missed?.
