Let’s be honest, no teachers needs another “Best Teacher” mug. Chances are, they already have a cupboard full of those at home. It’s not that they won’t appreciate the thought, it’s just that there are only so many mugs one person can use! So, if you are looking for something a little more unique, why not consider one of the ten techy gifts for teachers below. They’re a great way to say thank you to the educators in your life. Everything on this list can be had for $30 or less, and if you decide to buy something for yourself as well, I won’t tell!Read More »
Today I am excited to announce the launch of a new website that I’ve been working on. It’s called The Edtech Gear Guide. It was created to help answer the emails, tweets and face-to-face questions I get about what technology hardware is best for a variety of classroom projects. Everyone wants free options to enhance teaching and learning with technology, I completely understand that, but there are some things are worth paying for to get the results you want. In essence, this is the mantra of The Edtech Gear Guide. If it can be done for free, here’s how to do it. Otherwise, here’s the gear you need.
So, what can you expect to find on this new site? Recently, I wrote a couple of posts that proved to be quite popular – What to Buy For a Green Screen Classroom and Build Your Own Google Expeditions Kit. These posts were a little different from others that I have written because they were basically a list of technology things that you could beg, borrow or buy to accomplish a task. I got some great feedback on these from educators who were looking for ideas and inspiration like this, so it got me thinking that there are many more topics that could be approached in this way.
I’m still in the process of adding new articles to The Edtech Gear Guide but I would love for you to drop by and take a look. Questions, comments and ideas are more than welcome, and if you like what you see I would love it if you would share this project with others.
