  • 2. Introduction Have you ever asked yourself which tools do you use to learn and teach?I did and this is the result. These are “just” some of the tools that I use orrecommend. It is not an extensive list, though…[Are we getting tools-addicted? Have you ever counted how many tools youuse? Seriously, we use a lot of tools. Tools for everything! We even usealternative tools that do the same as others... Call a doctor! We need help!]I’m presenting an image next to those that I severely recommend and a heart next to those that I love.I’m also presenting some alternatives that I like to have next to me in case I might need them…I’m excluding iPad apps (except one). There are too many! :-)
