“And now let us welcome the new year, full of things that never were.” By Rainer Maria Rilke

With the start of a new school year, I wanted to share some technology tools that may help you this year in your classroom.

  1. PDF Candy: It is a website that converts PDFs into lots of different formats!
  2. INSERTLEARNING: This chrome extension allows you to take any page on the Internet and turn it into a lesson by highlighting text and adding notes etc. You can even embed your own questions that students can answer right on the page. Check out this video to show you how it works.
  3. Kahoot! I know this one is an “oldie” but there is a feature not many teachers know or utilize which is TEAM Mode. When using team mode there is a pause after each question before a response can be submitted. During that pause, teams can discuss the answer choices then submit a response. This is a great way to build collaboration, critical thinking and communication skills within your classroom.
