Free Technology for Teachers is an award-winning blog written by Google-certified teacher Richard Byrne. The blog features links to “how-to” tutorials for the creation of websites (Yola, Webs, SnapPages, Webnode, Sauropol, Weebly, Hipero, SchoolRack, Moogo, and Jimdo), blogs (Blogger, Edublogs, Wordpress, Posterous), and wikis. Byrne’s blog also includes Google tutorials, free downloads, and dozens of resources related to educational technology.
Google’s cloud-based spreadsheets, word processing, and presentation editors support synchronous and asynchronous collaboration among and between students. This website provides links to introductory tutorials as well as testimonials from educators.
SmartBrief offers free industry-specific electronic newsletters to subscribers. Newsletters are automatically delivered to an email account or may be viewed via a smartphone app. One of my favorites is the SmartBrief of EdTech. Although geared toward educators in the K-12 environment, article links frequently have application to college-level environments such as educational uses of Apple’s new iPad mini.
