Many wonderful educational sites here. I'd also like to recommend A site where teachers can easily discover, share and manage sites just like mentioned in this article.

Here are Livebinders I created with tech tools, some of which you have already listed.

Great example of you you can use Livebinders to share resources...

But you didn't suggest that Livebinders be added to the list! (It should be)

One World Education Should Be on This List

Thanks for putting such a list together, Hubert. Check out One World Education ( out of Washington, DC. The organization publishes student writing on culture and global issues and then aligns the student writing with project-based lesson plans and comprehension-based assessments. Is anyone else familiar with them?

I've tried Livebinders and it's OK. This is my collection of links regarding research methods -
I have another suggestion I've tried recently - Pearltrees - also easy and nice - my collection of survey research links -
As video organizer I've enjoyed Vidque -

What about WolframAlpha? I show all my Mathematics students how to use this. I created some slideshows to demonstrate syntax for Mathematics:

I use many of the tools you have listed and created a WordPress blog for staff at my school giving links to tutorials and examples of classroom use.

One True Media

One True Media is a video editor, similar to Animoto, but with the advantage of no time limitation. The free component is quite good (the paid version allows the use of extra templates).

Awesome tools on this list! Thanks!
We here at have teachers creating Learning Playlists to organize online resources (YouTube videos, articles, PDFs, etc) for their students. They then have embedded these playlists in their classroom blogs or LMS'. Hope this helps!

Brilliant list here. So many excellent tools for educators. I've just started using Scoop It, too, which I think has real potential.
