Ed Tech can Ease the Stress

Sometimes, Educational Technology can be so overwhelming; there is so much out there that it is easy to feel that you'll never keep up. There are always shiny, new tools available for classroom and personal use that grab our attention and the attention of our students, but that doesn't always mean they are worthwhile. One of the goals I have in The Book Fort, my weekly newsletter, is to review Ed Tech tools so that teachers can have an easier time choosing those that may be useful to them. One such tool is Insert_Learning.png, a Google Chrome extension that allows users to interact with any webpage by adding comments, questions, sticky notes, and much more. Many teachers have access to Chromebooks and other computers for students, so this could be a game changer! Bonus: it works very well with Wonderopolis. Check out the sample below where I inserted some instructions for students to use on one of the Wonders-of-the-Day. Try it today; you'll love it!
