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:

Words Tool is a new flash card maker.  I’m adding it to The Best Tools To Make Online Flashcards.

YouTube Studio Settings for Teachers is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to A POTPOURRI OF THE BEST & MOST USEFUL VIDEO SITES.

How to Make Multimedia Maps on Padlet is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to The Best Map-Making Sites On The Web.

Artsio lets you use Artificial Intelligence to create art work.  I’m adding it to TEACHING ENGLISH THROUGH USING AI FOR ART CREATION.

This is from Recomendo:

Google has famously not added anything to its simple and austere search page in 20 years. But recently they added something special: a little camera icon. This is Google Lens. You can drag an image into the Google’s search bar and use AI to do many more things that Google Image does. If it is a common image it can tell you the source of the image. If it is an uncommon image it can show you similar images. If it is a product, it can identify it and suggest sources. If it is a plant or living creature it can identify it. It can translate foreign scripts, including mathematics. If I am searching for something that has an image associated with it, I can often find much better results, faster, searching via the image in Google Lens.


SendFileOnline lets you do just that.  I’m adding it to THE BEST TOOLS FOR SENDING LARGE FILES.

Poxi lets you create free webpages, though I’m not ready to add it to The Best Ways For Students Or Teachers To Create A Website.
