I'm trying to be edtech-savvy teacher, that's why I use many tools to engage students into studying process. 

I'd be glad to share my favorite ones with you:

  •  Prezi - to create wonderful presentations
  •  Quizlet - tool for quizes, tests and tasks creation
  •  ePals - allows integration from class to class, student to student and group to group
  •  ReadWriteThink - the name speaks for itself :-)
  •  Unplag - online plagiarism checker. They recently released Moodle plugin so now we use it as a part of our school LMS
  •  Padlet - for student-teacher collaboration

These are main tools I highly recommend to other teachers. Enjoy the education process! :-) 

I personally do not have my own classroom yet, however I see so much use of the iPad! I love it and I think it keeps students engaged!

Teachers, we need to move from the established techniques of teaching to new methods where technology is racially balanced into the classroom. 

9 Pencils - Teachers to discover share & manage educational content with students. A teacher can create quizzes, websites, track students, & more.

Animoto - Create wonderful looking slideshows that include video, images, music, & more.

Aviary Education - online tools for - audio, video, & image editing.

Class tell - A nice site for teachers to create an educational site.

Diigo - Social bookmarking for teachers where they can create free student accounts.

SpellingCity - One of the best sites around for teaching and learning Spelling & Vocabulary.

Kid blog - A fantastic way to create a safe environment for students to blog in. Everything is controlled by the teacher as a moderator.

Presentation Tube - A nice app for creating presentations out of PowerPoint slides.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
