Most of the tools cited here are easy to use and have user friendly interface and they will let you create your own e-magazine or newspaper in few simple steps. Yet I would recommend your discretion as you use them with your students.

101 Excellent Sites for English Educators | Tech Tools for School | Scoop.it

A list of the top 101 websites for English & Language Arts (ELA) chosen by real teachers from prominent LinkedIn groups.

***

So, Mr. or Ms. English teacher, do I get high marks for my use of alliteration in the title? Pretty fancy, eh?!

If you’re not impressed by THAT feat of literary genius, I hope you’ll at least give me an “A+” for putting together this list of 101 websites for English teachers. I did it by polling several of LinkedIn’s most prominent ELA groups over the course of a few months. As always, I hope you find something that’s new (and useful) to you!

Writefull | A new way of writing with confidence

Writefull | A new way of writing with confidence | Tech Tools for School | Scoop.it
We all use Google to check if our writing is correct. We enter different phrases until we find the one that gives us most results – and this is the one we use in our own text. A smart approach, but not without its annoyances: revisiting the Google webpage breaks the flow of our writing, and its results often contain grammatical errors.
