EdShelf..Applications that are Reviewed by Educators to Save you Time!!

One of my go to sites to find great educational resources is EdShelf. I get the data and feedback I need to see if a site is worth my time, my teachers time, and my students time. I have been using EdShelf for about 6 months now and I am very pleased. I also like to give input on the different applications I use as well. Pay it Forward = )

I love that you can build your own shelf of applications for your specific content or topic. This site is well worth your time!!



Here is a great post from EdShelf for today that I wanted to share with you.


From elementary school to college, students of all ages have a growing pool   of educational tools available to them. Here are a set of tools you might not be aware of, and have been recommended by students to their teachers.
 
  • StudyRoom - Form online study groups to connect with classmates, get help on homework, share notes and get better grades. 


  • ClassOwl - A student planner that also tracks how long assignments should take, based on teacher estimates and classmate feedback.

  • CAST Science Writer - This free website helps students write science or lab reports using scaffolds for each step of the writing process.

  • Easy Blog Jr - An iOS app designed so early childhood to elementary school students have an easy way to publish a online journal.

  • Class Activities - Curated by middle school world history teacher Charsta Simmons.

Enjoy these great tools for educators!
