As I coach teachers each day, I think it is essential to gather the strategies and resources provided, and house them in one location. Sharing simple tools for keeping up with endless bookmarks (Diigo), annotating and saving texts for later (Evernote, Clearly), or creating the world’s best blogs (WordPress, of course!) can mount up, and it’s easy to lose track! So to stay organized, I decided to expand to a web hosting site that I’ve grown to love: Weebly. My space was previously active, since I launched a website for my students back in 2012, and I thought it would be a shame to let it go to waste! Now, it’s totally revamped and packed with resources for technology integration and Project-Based Learning.
The links are organized into a webmix created powered by Symbaloo. Personally, I like the functionality of the tile squares rather than incredibly long lists of links. However, with your feedback, I’d be glad to consider adding descriptions below the webmixes for those who need more information. Soon I’ll upload a screencast showing just how handy this tool can be! Plus, it’s visually attractive.
In fact, my undying committment to Symbaloo® is what prompted me to expand my “tool shed” to Weebly®, because WordPress.com does not permit embedding webmixes into this blog.
Just in case you navigate away from this post and explore some others here, you’ll be please to know that there’s a direct tab up above, to take you straight to the Tech Tools you need! Once there, you’ll find a tab to bring you right back to Social Juggernaut.
Ease of use is the name of the game when it comes to helping teachers with tech infusion.
In addition to the resource pages at Tech Tools for Teachers, there’s a Tutorials tab where I will post all of the screencasts I produce in the future. Check back often!
Now, I know what you’re thinking, This post was totally about self promotion! Kind of, but the more teachers this blog can help, the more students there are to gain from those teachers, and it’s a win-win situation. In all things education…remember, we do it for the kids!
