It’s NOT About the Tools!!• Here are some actions you might want to help the kidsdevelop……• Collaborate• Communicate• Present• Create• Compose/Write• Organize
My Personal Rules aboutChoosing Tools• The tool must be easy to use• The tool must be intuitive enough that the students spendmore time writing, learning, collaborating, etc, rather thanplaying with the settings.• The tool must be able to be shared easily• The tool should be free (or must be really amazing if theywant me to pay for it!)• The tool is something I want to use multiple times so the kidsbecome familiar with it. There is always a learning curve….
