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:
7 Not-So-Secret Google Tools for Teachers is from The Teaching Channel.
Kahoot is trying to catch-up with Blooket, Gimkit and others by adding adventure-type games to its site, though you have to pay extra for them.
Drop Deck automatically creates slides for you as you type in a document. I’m adding it to The Best Tools That “Automatically” Create Presentations.
PechaFlickr lets you type in a prompt/concept, and then automatically creates a slideshow supposedly about that topic. I’m not sure how to use it in class, but it is creative.
5 TIPS FOR DIFFERENTIATING INSTRUCTION WITH TECHNOLOGY is from Class Tech Tips. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Differentiating Instruction.
The Chrome extension GlotDojo allows for video subtitles in 2 languages simultaneously!
