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:
Gimkit Games for Interpretive Assessment and Student Collaboration is from FLT Magazine. It provides a good explanation of each of Gimkit’s games. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Creating Online Learning Games.
Web Highlighter lets you annotate webpages. I’m adding it to The Best Applications For Annotating Websites.
Here’s a good explanation of how to use Data Wrapper, which is on The Best Resources For Creating Infographics list.
Kahoot! recently added an interesting new question type called Slider.
The Map of Your Twitter Friends is from Google Maps Mania.
This site looks very useful: “nosignup.tools is a curated collection of web-based products that don’t require an account or registration.”
Play Scattergorix online. Choose the categories, the nº of players, the nº of rounds and play against your classmates or against a robot. Fun, quick and challenging. https://t.co/pW0RueVe3Q pic.twitter.com/10MOovlgof
