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:
LightSail looks like a very impressive online literacy tool. It appears to have a very large number of online books to read, and a tool to support student writing – all available for free. It appears to begin to cost if you want to expand the number of available books. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress.
Prodigy Math has been on THE BEST MATH SITES THAT STUDENTS CAN USE INDEPENDENTLY AND LET TEACHERS CHECK ON PROGRESS list for quite awhile. I recently learned that they had expanded their games and interactives for younger people to English, and it’s free. I’m adding it to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress .
Belouga is an online teaching platform, but I’m having a difficult time understanding exactly what it does, even after reading this review. However, it does appear that one of its features is the ability to connect up with other classes around the world, so I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Find Other Classes For Joint Online Projects.
This is interesting – Kahoot! is creating a competitor to Teachers Pay Teachers.
