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:
Huey the Bookbot recommends children’s books based on the user’s interest. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Get Blog, Website, Book, Movie, & Music Recommendations.
Scholarlys lets you create a feed for new research papers on topics you’re interested in – it’s sort of a Google Alerts for papers, but in a scrolling feed form. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Academic Research.
ETempMail lets you create temporary email addresses. I’m adding it to The Best Temporary Email Address Sites For Students (Or Anyone).
You is an interesting new search engine.
Flash Survey is yet another online survey tool, though I’m not yet ready to add it to The Best Sites For Creating Online Polls & Surveys.
beehiiv is a new tool to create email newsletters. I’m adding it to The Best Applications For Creating Free Email Newsletters.
Eraser is a virtual whiteboard.
Supa is a new and what seems to be easy way to create engaging videos.
BookWidgets – Create Unique Online Activities for Your Students is from Richard Byrne.
Digital games for improving student motivation in mathematics: Are they effective? is from The Economy of Meaning. I’m adding it to The Best Research Available On The Use Of Technology In Schools.
The Phenomenon That’s Making PowerPoint Presentations Bearable (Even Enjoyable?) is from Ed Surge. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR HELPING STUDENTS PREPARE A PECHA KUCHA PRESENTATION – PLEASE SUGGEST MORE.
