12 Excellent New Web Tools for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

12 Excellent New Web Tools for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Adventures in TechEd | Scoop.it

"Wondering about the latest releases in the world of educational technology? Well I have compiled my usual bi-weekly round-up of the major web tools you might need to know about. The websites below, besides being new here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, they also have some educational potential that you, teachers and educators, might capitalize on.

As you know by now, the titles I include in these lists are all web tools that I have come across in my daily online meandering. Each time I stumble upon a good tool that one of my fellow bloggers reviewed, I add it to my bookrmaking list till I end up having  a "meaty" collection for you. You can also check the previous posts I have featured here before in this page. http://ow.ly/lLlcZ ; "
