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:
6 Ed Tech Tools to Try in 2023 is from Cult of Pedagogy.
The Traw whiteboard seems to have a reasonable free option. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration.
BookWidgets Adds a New Video Quiz Option to Use in Google Classroom and Beyond is from Richard Byrne. I’m adding it to A POTPOURRI OF THE BEST & MOST USEFUL VIDEO SITES.
Three Reasons Why We Keep Reinventing The Same Learning Technology Every Few Years is by Dan Meyer.
Making New Tech Tools Work for Your Classroom is from Edutopia.
It looks like Google is beginning to more widely distribute the Aloud tool (see Google’s New “Aloud” Tool Could Be A Huge Asset To Teachers Who Want To Make Their Content Accessible To ELLs ) to let people dub their videos in different languages, which could be very helpful to teachers. Check out the NBC News article YouTube creators can now dub their videos in multiple languages and YouTube’s blog post about it.
