Do YOU Symbaloo?

Hi guys! Betsey, here, from over at Trendy Tech Tips. I have to share with you an amazing, multi-use website that I could not live without in my classroom. It is called SymbalooEDU! While the name is a little silly, the site is AWESOME! Put simply, SymbalooEDU is an organization tool that allows teachers and students to  hold various links all in one location. These links are stored in what is called a "webmix."
Webmixes are filled with tiles. These tiles are links to your favorite websites and tools that you can use in your classroom! While Teacher and District licenses do cost moooolah, the individual license is completely FREE and you can create as many webmixes on as many different "themes" as you like! I have different mixes for my staff resources, math and reading websites, Web 2.0 tools, and I've even began creating them for various lessons with my students by linking tiles to Google Docs. 
What's even cooler....there is a Symbaloo app for your android or apple products! This is a great organizational tool that really keeps me on track and the kids LOVE using it! Check out my blog to see a tutorial on how to create your OWN Symbaloo!
