EdTech: 100 Tech Tools for Teachers and Students | DailyTekk | Edtech 2 Go | Scoop.it

So here’s what I’ve got for all you educators our there: some random and cool EduTech tools, tech tools for teachers and students, ways to integrate mobile devices into the classroom, social learning tools, elearning and online learning resources and finally some test prep, textbook, educational gaming and a few other random resources. What you won’t find here are any lame attempts to pawn off something that’s not an education-specific tech tool as something marvelous and new like I’ve seen on a few other blogs (like Gmail or Skype–definitely useful, but come on, not education specific). The scope of this list covers everything from Kindergarten-age up through college-age so there’s hopefully something for everyone here.
