Technology for Teachers

The latest and greatest for you and your students

Websites and links for you to use

Free Tech 4 Teachers

Former teacher Richard Byrne has created a blog designed for teachers, focusing on using technology. I especially like his "47 Alternatives to You Tube", and if you have an Android or iPad, links to apps that work on those devices. For TH, the Google Tutorials are useful. The blog itself is well organized and has a ton of information--you'll want to save it as a favorite.

Best Websites for Teaching and Learning 2013 Edition

Best Websites for Teaching and Learning 2013

Every year, the American Association of School Librarians (a sterling group if there ever was one), releases its 25 Best Websites. Here's what they say about this clickable list:

"The 2013 Best Websites for Teaching and Learning foster the qualities of innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration. They are free, Web-based sites that are user friendly and encourage a community of learners to explore and discover."

The categories are:

  • Media Sharing
  • Digital Storytelling
  • Manage and Organize
  • Social Networking
  • Content Organization
  • Curriculum Collaboration

All of the new, free websites look great. S'mores is on the list and is the tool I used to create this communique. They're free, they're fun. If you haven't used technology tools as an alternate form of assignment, you may want to try something new for you and for your students. Some are subject specific, like My Garbology and MyHistro. Others are for everyone. Take a look.

P.S. I loved experiemnting with this website. Try it for class newsletters.
