Free Technology for Teachers: Practical Ed Tech Handbook – Updated for 2016


Last year I published a 30 page document that I called The Practical Ed Tech Handbook. This week I spent some time revising that document and updating it the 2016-17 school year. The Practical Ed Tech Handbook isn’t just a list of my favorite resources. I’ve included ideas for using these resources and in many cases I’ve included links to video tutorials about my favorite resources.

In The Practical Ed Tech Handbook you will find resources arranged in seven categories; communication with students parents, web search strategies, digital citizenship, video creation, audio production, backchannels informal assessment, and digital portfolios.

The Practical Ed Tech Handbook is embedded below. You can also grab a copy of it here.

Top Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Easy Formative Assessment

A secret to great teaching is to understand what students know. I’ve had times when one or two students begged me to move on because what I was teaching was “so easy” or they were “bored. When I did, I would discover that the rest of the class did not master the material and I had moved on too quickly!

Padlet is a web app that lets users post notes on a digital wall. The uses for this site in the classroom are virtually endless!

There’s a good chance you’ve done the “write on a sticky note and put it on the wall” activity — or have seen it happen before.
