EdTech Tools and Apps - November 16, 2012

Google Chrome Apps

Google Apps for Education gives teachers and students the opportunity to create, share, and collaborate on content anytime with an Internet connection. Besides Gmail, Docs/Drive, Sites, and Calendar there are so many more great Google Apps to use with your students. Below I will share a few of my favorite finds so far. Visit the Chrome Web Store to find more apps that will fit your classroom needs.

Useful Websites and Apps

Wolfram-Alpha

Wolfram-Alpha, according to its website, is a "computational knowledge engine". I have found this site very useful when researching information about countries around the world, but it can do so much more. Use this site to complete a number of conversions, calculate a math problem, map out vocabulary words, research the nutritional value of different foods, etc. This helpful resource is also an app available in many app stores. Currently students in the high school have access to this app on the iPod Touches.

WatchKnowLearn

YouTube is a great site to find educational videos, however there are so many other great educational video sites. WatchKnowLearn is a great educational video resource that organizes video by content and age appropriateness. Visit my website to find more great educational video websites.
