Who are the top 5?


1. Google Apps for Education: 40 million students/educators can't be wrong-and it has Google Docs and no ads..


2. Twitter: It's become a place for growing a personal learning network (PLN) among educators and is used in the classroom as well.


3. YouTube: With tons of channels that can help educators, it's the place both educators and students love.


4. Edmodo, like Google Apps for Education, has over 40 million members.  It's free and has many options to provide content and assessments for students.


5. Remind made it into the top 5. “Think of it as a combo of sticky note and class newsletter for the digital age,” writes nprED reviewer Elissa Nadworny. “Remind allows teachers to send messages — via email, cellphone, iPad or Android device — to an entire class with the push of a button.”
