I have been frequently asked by teachers about free software tools. Well, it is no secret that there are great number of freebies—applications, services, and sites available on the Web. However, how do you find these free technology tools, retrieve them, and use them in teaching and learning? Wouldn’t it be great if you know exactly where to go on the Web to get the information, applications, tools, or Web services you need for your teaching? To answer these questions, Patrivan Yuen and I reviewed hundreds of free technology tools and selected the best of very best tools that we thought are valuable to teachers. As a result, we came up our favorite list and made a presentation a presentation entitled “Best of the Free Technology Tools for Teachers” at the Mississippi Educational Computing Association (MECA) conference early this year. Our presentation reviewed our favorite list of the best, hidden stashes of incredible free technology tools on the Web that are valuable to teachers.
Hope you benefit from these freebies.
