50 Education Tools for Tech-Savvy Teachers

Just last August, a guest written article in Edudemic listed the 50 most widely used and increasingly popular technological tools for education. Ranging from social media websites, content and lesson plan applications, and interactive education games, these tools have been adopted to make teaching more effective, and learning more fun and involving. Even though many of these tools are used outside of the realm of education, they can still be used in creative ways to promote and facilitate a powerful teaching and learning experience.

The article organizes the list into four categories of tools: Social Learning, Learning, Lesson Planning and Tools, and Useful Tools. The following are just some of the tools listed in the article. For a complete list, click here.

  1. The only potential downside with using websites like Pinterest is that they’re very addictive. I can see how they’d be useful for engaging students, especially when you consider so many kids these days are used to accessing bitesize information.
