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:
FoBizz Tools has a lot of….tools for teachers. I think their “Create a Worksheet” feature is particularly useful. It’s a German site and, though much of it is in English, their videos explaining how to use it are in German. I’m adding it to THE BEST TOOLS FOR MAKING ONLINE INTERACTIVE WORKSHEETS.
“I believe that the motion picture is destined to revolutionize our educational system and that in a few years it will supplant largely, if not entirely, the use of textbooks.” – Thomas Edison, 1913 https://t.co/aQ2H4TFoyX

Touring Test is a very hard geography game, but it does have some interesting features, including having two playing options – map or multiple choice – and offering the feature of playing in a private room with friends. So, I’m adding it to The Best Online Geography Games and to The Best Online Games Students Can Play In Private Virtual “Rooms”
At least this article raises some questions about Khan and Gates' idealized vision of AI becoming the perfect tutor for everybody. https://t.co/4Wf7i35lYV
