Terrific Tech Tuesday Linky Party [Tues., Feb. 3, 2015]

Welcome to my new weekly "Terrific Tech Tuesday" Linky Party, where teachers get to talk about the awesome technology they are using in the classroom. 

This is my first time hosting a linky party, so if you're a pro, I would really love your feedback and support if you could spare it. 

I absolutely love learning about and discovering new tools, tips, apps, and everything else technology related that would make a teacher's job smarter and not harder; and at the same time add relevant interaction and fun for students. 

Join up today! Add your links (as many as you'd like). Write a post on your blog talking about your favorite technology you're currently in the classroom and why it's so terrific. Link back to this linky in your post, then click the blue Add A Link button at the bottom of the page.

For me,  Edshelf is probably my most favorite place to go to learn about the most recent educational tools in technology. It is "A discovery engine of websites, mobile apps, desktop programs, and electronic products for teaching and learning." 


 I love the way the website attractively and easily highlights Featured Tools, Featured Collections, Edshelf's Newest Members, Recently Added Tools, Recently Added Collections (created by members). With the click of a button you can search for The Perfect Tool, Browse Around and Explore, and have a glimpse at Trending Technology Tools. Once you create a free account, you can even Add a Tool to the website that you use in the classroom that is not currently featured on the site.

I really like how through sharing and collaboration, members can share with other educators their collection of tools that they are currently using. There is even an area where you can read Recent Reviews on tools you might be considering. You must check out Edshelf.
