Welcome to Digital Tools

This blog has information about websites you may find useful in the classroom.
These are a mixture of Web 2.0 tools which allow students to collaborate and other sites useful for adding variety to lessons. These are all completely free to use.
Note that the Web 2.0 Tools page has directories which include extensive collections of web2.0 tools.
See Jane Hart’s list of Top 100 Tools for Learning – these have been voted for by educators.

Some student thoughts on online collaboration. (Click for link).
Priya says it all with her statement: ”To let go of thinking that it is all your ideas and think that it is our ideas!’

Web2.0 In Education – Slide Show. (by jwatson_softease).

See Digital Tools for Students for a version of this site with links for students. There is some overlap between the links on the two sites. This staff version includes information and examples of educational uses; the student version includes a collection of links which hopefully students can use themselves which will be useful to support their studies.
