Who needs an EdTech guru? You may be shouting, “I do” and that’s okay, because all educators need as much technology help as they can get.
So, what if your tech guru were always with you–24/7? It might sound impossible but it isn’t.
The Teacher’s Guide to Tech is every educators’ new best friend
Longtime educator, bestselling author, popular blogger and podcaster Jennifer Gonzalezhas invested years into creating an evolving set of more than 130 education technology tools — websites and mobile apps — which she’s organized into over 30 categories and integrated into a digital platform that is like having a technology instructor with you whenever you need help.
This powerful Teacher’s Guide to Tech is a downloadable, interactive guide that is rapidly becoming every educator’s new best friend.
Imagine needing to engage reluctant writers and thinking, There must be a cool tech tool to inspire these kids to write. Of course there is, and it’s in The Teacher’s Guide to Tech, where you’ll find writing applications all students will enjoy in multiple categories, like Blogging, Book Publishing, and Writing (see the complete list of tools below). If you are using a tablet, just scroll to the contents page, click a category, and check out amazing tools like these.
Want students to actually ask you to test them? No problem. Click into the Assessmentcategory and check out Flubaroo or Kahoot. What student wouldn’t love using a tool with monikers like these? Need help with classroom management, collaboration, coding, or even fundraising? Forget waiting on a tech coach to return your email or struggling to find the best tools in a Google search that returns thousands of pages. Gonzalez has done the work for you, and you can literally keep it in your pocket!
Take the tech for a test drive
Why is the Teacher’s Guide to Tech your new best friend? Not only does it show up on time–on your desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone–it’s completely interactive, but it will never bore you or criticize what you do (now, that’s a rare kind of friend). The description pages provide details on exactly how to use the tools, and each page is chock-full of links to the tool’s website, graphics, expert tips for maximum effectiveness, and links to how-to videos (see image below).
Plus, you can actually print any page in the guide and take it with you to class, as a quick reference.
A tool that keeps on giving
What I love most about The Teachers Guide to Tech–other than the fact that it is created by and experienced, world-class educator–is that this guide keeps on giving. This one digital resource already contains more than 130 tech tools, in over 30 categories–all of which contain free versions. But unlike most trendy books you see about technology (Google This, or iPad That), which will be obsolete a few minutes after you buy them, Gonzalez never stops updating The Teacher’s Guide to Tech.
As the tech tools evolve, so does the guide. In other words, your new best friend keeps getting smarter!
