Mary Beth,

I have enjoyed reading your post. I love how you gathered this valuable information from teachers to share with your readers. I am writing a book for Learning Express titled Teaching with Technology, Strategies for Today's Learners. May I use some of these practical ideas and comments for my book? or at least link to this document?
Thanks for sharing!

Here are some links to some great tech tools to try out:

Technology to use on a daily basis at school to organize and plan:
Cloud file storage and syncing:
Great resources for teachers for back to school:
Resources for students:

I use technology resources to save money (free ones), get organized, help my students, and do things I couldn't do otherwise (virtual field trips and labs).

Thanks, Peter, for pointing that out! Sometimes we educators get so excited about a tool that we forget to check those kinds of things.

I still think that Prezi can be great for teachers as a stand in for PowerPoint, but you're right that we should not be letting our under 18 students use it.

I wonder, however, if they will change that stipulation once they see the tool catch on in education.

Thanks again.

It is so refreshing to learn of teachers who are actually embracing technology. I spend a lot of time working to convince teachers and other adults of the benefits of integrating technology into the classroom. It is time we understand that this is not an either or proposition. This is wonderful work and reading this has motivated me to move forward in my efforts.

Thanks, Mary Beth,

For this great collection of ideas - so much for teachers to explore and use to engage students.

I work in the field of eLearning. Below, I've pasted the Prezi Description of Service. I only discovered this because I was about to work with a Primary School teacher (in Australia)to introduce Prezi to a class of 11/12 year olds. We have a lot of teachers using Prezi but, alas, it's not going to be available for students.

Prezi Description of Service: Adults Only. The Prezi Service is intended for adults only. You must be 18 years old – or, if the age of majority in your state or province is greater than 18 years, such age of majority in your state or province – or have obtained the consent of your parent or guardian to use the Prezi Service. In accordance with U.S. Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), Prezi will never knowingly solicit, nor will it accept, personally identifiable information from users known to be under thirteen (13) years of age. Please see our privacy policy for additional information or for how to notify us of any concerns you may have in this regard.

Thanks for the great ideas. Love answergarden and Prezi! I'll take photos of the first week's activities and create a Voicethread.
