Free Web Tech Tools For Next Level Learning

Last week I attended the Upstate Technology Conference which I think is the best in our state, the whole east coast, and probably the United States! (I’m a little partial, can you tell?) I’m going to share some of my notes over the next few days. I hope you find them helpful!

Free Web Tech Tools For Next Level Learning

My Take Away: I learned about a lot of different tools that would help accommodate individual differences in the classroom. There are many web tools not listed here but are in the presentation. The presentation was excellently done and made me excited about trying some of these new things out!
