With all the websites, mobile apps, and desktop programs available to teachers out there, it can be exasperating to know how to use them. Most busy teachers simply ask colleagues in their department or the teacher’s lounge. Or the resident technology integrator, if your school is lucky enough to have one.
But what if you have already tried those avenues? Or don’t have them available? Fortunately, there are a few resources online that you can use. There is Twitter and its various teacher hashtags, social media sites for teachers, or edshelf’s collections.
Below is one such collection. It is curated by Mrs. J. Porritt from W.S. Hawrylak School. Generously included are notes for each of the tools she uses in her classroom. If you are looking for a new tool, or want to know more about an existing tool, check out her useful collection of teaching tools.
