There are several reasons why you would be thinking to use collaborative white boards in your classroom . As a teacher, you can use these collaborative web tools to explain abstract hard to grasp concepts to your students through  diagrams, illustrative drawings, mindmaps...etc .

 

You can also use them to get students working collaboratively on a classroom project.The cool thing about these collaborative whiteboard tools is that they are web-based and therefore do not require any software installation and you can access them anywhere with internet connection. Here are three new tools I recommend for you today, check them out below and share with us what you think of them.

Podcasts are a great way to get information when you’re driving in your car, making dinner at home, or waiting at the DMV to renew your license. Podcasts don’t force you to find more time in your day; they give you the opportunity to capitalize on all the dead time that already exists in your day by simply downloading the .mp3 or syncing a podcast to your iTunes account on your smartphone.

Even though podcasts have been around awhile, a lot of people still don’t utilize the hundreds of free podcasts available on the Internet. Now is a great time to start.
