It's great to be back from PETE&C in Hershey! I met a lot of wonderful people and learned a lot about new technology tools. Today's tech tip is running a little late due to no school yesterday and a 2hr delay today!
Edshelf.com is a site that I learned about a few weeks ago and then appeared again at my conference. The site describes itself as, "A discovery engine of websites, mobile apps, desktop programs, and electronic products for teaching and learning. " The site is free and you can choose if you want to make an account.
If you want to search for a tool, you can use the search feature to find the desired technology tool by name or sort by category.
Here is a link and image of my personal page (I haven't written a bio yet...)
At the bottom you can see each of my collections sorted by topic.
I will continue to update my Edshelf with tools that I have tried myself. Take a few minutes and use Edshelf the next time you are looking for your next tech tool. Be sure that the tool you pick matches your content and pedagogy as well!
