some great sites and tools to learn and use
So many sites, so little time!
Here are four new tools I've discovered this year that I really like (and I'm using one to create this infographic!)
Great as curation tools as well
Perfect for administration, the classroom or library.
I see great educational potential in all of them!
For each site, I also have suggested curriculum tie-ins.
Not too many, not too little....just right.
